"Junkyard Blues" as written by and Ian Gillan Roger Glover....
Broken down relations, beaten up guitars
Making one last appearance in a heap of old cars
Brambles and weeds flourishing amongst
Lines of empty bottles and rambling drunks

Junkyard blues sounds familiar
I'm never alone
Always remind me of home

Once of a dozen covered with stains
Blistered and stinking was all that remained
Cannibalized machines, mysterious bones
Unwanted contents of anonymous homes

Those junkyard blues sounds familiar
Take me back
Always remind me of home

Mangy old dog scratching in the dust
Burned out Mercedes surrendering to rust
All this stuff was good for something
But here it is now, good for nothing

Junkyard blues sounds familiar
I'm never alone
Always remind me of home

    General CommentPossibly the best song of the Morse-era along with "Sometimes I Feel Like Screamin". The chemistry and the guitar/keys duel in the middle is amazing.. its undescribeable, you have to listen to it to believe it. Many say that Deep Purple was over after Ritchie left.. but this is another proof that shows how the band is still rocking. A 100/100 track. believe it.
