"Kelly's Blues" as written by Jack Bruce and Pete Brown....
Where is the way out of the night
When the dark wind's cryin'?
Where is the way out of the night
Where you're lying?

Where is the time to heal the loss
When the cruel tongues cross
And the heart can't sail?

Where is the way to keep it in
When the sick words win
And you grip the rails?

Where is the place to lay your head
When the streets run red
And your heart's in jail?

Where is the place to lay your head
When the pressure's tight
And the glare so bright?
Where is the way out of the night?

You hit the black, where you just can't hack it no more
The pain caught up, and slammed you down to the floor
How can you fight with the dying of your dreams?
Kelly's Blues, gone with the wind, never green

Where is the way out of the night
When the dark wind's cryin'?
Where is the way out of the night
Where you're lying?

Where was the hand to soothe your brow
When the need was now?
Straying off the line

Where was the friend you could not find?
Tore your open mind
Wrote your name in grime

Where was the way out of the maze
When the days got crazed?
All the games they played
Where is the way out of the night?

You hit the black, where you just can't hack it no more
The pain caught up, and slammed you down to the floor
How can you fight with the dying of your dreams?
Kelly's Blues, gone with the wind, never green
Lying, crying
