Here comes Dolly Dagger
Her love’s so heavy, gonna make you stagger.
Dolly Dagger, she drinks her blood from a jagged edge...
Been riding broomsticks since she was fifteen
Blow out all the other witches on the scene.
She got a bull whip, just as long as your life.
her tongue can even scratch
the soul out of the devil

    General CommentIt has something to do with a girl that Jimi was going out with who he saw with Mick Jagger, and I take it he wasn't to happy about it.

    General CommentThis song is about Mick Jagger and Jimi's girlfriend Devon Wilson. Devon threw a birthday party for Jimi...but Devon always had a thing for Mick Jagger too. The story goes that a glass Mick was holding broke and cut his finger. Devon went over and started sucking on Mick bloody finger.

    Devon and Jimi had a love/hate relationship.

    Incidently, when that party ended, Devon ended up going home with Mick Jagger. Mick in turn wrote the song "You Can't Always Get What You Want" for Jimi Hendrix. Think of those lyrics:
    "I saw her today at a reception
    A glass of wine in her hand
    I knew she would meet her connection
    At her feet was her footloose man

    I went down to the Chelsea drugstore
    To get your prescription filled
    I was standin' in line with Mr. Jimmy
    A-man, did he look pretty ill"

    Ah...semi-rock and roll fueds!!!
