Hey Izabella
Girl, I'm holding you in my dreams every night
Yeah, but you know good well, baby
You know we got this war to fight
Well I'm callin' you under fire
Well, I hope you're receiving me all right

Hey, Izabella
Izabella!
Girl, I'm fighting this war for the children and you
Izabella!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, baby
Izabella!
All this blood for the world of you
Izabella!
All your love!
So I hope you save your love, baby
Then I know the fighting' is true
Izabella!
Hey!

Hey Izabella
Whoo Izabella!
Put on the rays of the rising sun
Whoo Izabella!
Here they come
Well, I got to go back there and fight now, baby
Whoo Izabella!
I got to cling to the devils on the run
Whoo Izabella!
On the run, baby
Whoo Izabella!
So keep those dreams common' in strong
Soon I'll be holding you instead of this machine gun
Izabella!

Hey Izabella!
Izabella!
Ahh sweet lover
Izabella!
Savin' all my blood for you
Izabella!
Hey baby
Izabella!
Izabella!
Izabella!
Whoo
Whoo

    General CommentThe song is about a solider in the army singing about a girl he dreams about or about a guy who wants to fall in love with a girl but is a little bit too scared. This is the real meaning of the song, straight from Jimi's mouth at the Woodstock concert.

    General Commentdoesnt make sense that this song only has one post it's almost like people are denying his existance I mean even though his body is dead doesn't mean his spirit is not with each and every listener of his music. people stop commenting on fake music such as those shitty ass emo bands or w/e pop band thats' out there these days.
    wake up people! jimi aint dead he lives on!

    General Commentawesome song, truly a hendrix gem that is widely unheard, but it's awesome, nonetheless, great music. obviously about a woman some soldier is talking about while over in viet nam.
