Shoot down some of those airplanes your flyin',
specially the ones that are flyin' too low (x2)

Come on back up to earth my friend
Come on back up with me
We've all been up through the night time, baby
Now let's read the rays of the ???

With the power of soul
Anything is possible (x2)

Flyin' too much today
It's so groovy to float around sometimes
Even a jellyfish will agree to that

Yeah, but that old jellyfish
been floatin' around so long
Lord, he ain't got a bone
in his jelly back
Floatin' everyday and every night
Ridin' high is a risk
Sometimes the wind ain't right

With the power of soul
Anything is possible
With the power of you
Anything you wanna do

    no one has commented on this song for 3 years??? im breaking that chain. most of jimi's stuff is about love. someone needs to post doom changes. i guess this is about him breaking up and enjoying being single (floating around). we miss u jimi. god. seriously.

    I have Power of Soul (Live at Filmore East) and its pretty much the same thing with some extra lyrics...are they two different songs or one?

    "Sing it jimi, you live on the airwaves which gives you the right to communicate with your obsessors. Oh you mighty genius, play on won't you!" Just something I thought of after listening to this song for like probably the 10th time in my life. never gets old sorta like pink floyd's DSOTM)

    This is Power of Soul. The title is wrong (different song).
