Jimi Hendrix – Somewhere lyrics

Oh uh,
I see fingers, hands and shades of faces,
Reachin up and not quite touchin the promised land,
I hear pleas and prayers and a desperate whisper sayin,
Hold on please give us a helpin hand,
Yeah yeah

Way down in the background,
I can see frustrated souls of cities burnin,
And all across the water vapor,
I see weapons barkin out the stamp of death,
And up in the clouds I can imagine ufo's jumpin
Laughin they sayin,
Those people so uptight, they sure know how to make a

Back in the saloon my tears mix and mildew with my drink,
I can't really tell my feet from the stones on the floor,
But as far as I know, they may even try to wrap me up in
Cellophane and try and sell me
Brothers help me, and don't worry about lookin at the
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
