Well I, I just came back today . . .
I just came back from the storm.
I said: “I just came back, baby . . .
I just came back from the storm.
Yeah, from the storm.
Well, I didn’t know it then,
But I was sufferin’, sufferin’
For my love to keep me warm.
It was so cold and lonely, yeah.
The wind ’n’ cryin’ blue rain
Were tearing me up.
It was so cold and lonely.
The crying blue rain was tearing me up.
Oh, tearing me up.
I wanna thank you my sweet darling
For digging in the mud and picking me up.
Thank you so much!

It was a terrible rain that was burning my eyes.
. . . . . .
It was you my love who brought me in.
I love you so much,
I’ll never stray from you again.

I just came back baby.
I just came back to get my baby on her way.
Yeah, yeah.

    General CommentKiller riff! This song means trying to leave something you love, but in the end you realize you love it too much to leave.

    General CommentI always assumed that this (like "Machine Gun") were pretty much Jimi's only major Vietnam songs.

    General CommentI agree with oceansize86, and the part with ". . . . . ." is "The wind and lightning took me by surprise", since I couldn't find away to edit these lyrics myself.
