What's wrong with you ? I wish I knew
You say time will tell, I hope that's true
There's more to life than blues and reds
I say, I know how you feel, now your friends are dead.
Dead on your feet, you won't get far
If you keep on sticking your hand in the medicine jar.
Now don't give up whatever you do
You say time will tell, I hope that's true
If you go down and lose your head
I say, I know how you feel, now your friends are dead.
What can I do ? I can't let go
You say time will heal but very slow
So don't forget the things you said
I say I know how you feel now your friends are dead

    Jimmy talking to himself, although I think Paul McCartney wrote the song.

    Sad story. McCullough was a genius - just couldn't stay away from the junk.
