  • Black night is not right
    I don't feel so bright
    I don't care to sit tight
    Maybe I'll find on the way down the line that I'm free
    Free to be me.
    Black night is a long way from home

    I don't need a dark tree
    I don't want a rough sea
    I can't feel, I can't see
    Maybe I'll find on the way down the line that I'm free
    Free to be me
    Black night is a long way from home

    Black night, black night
    I don't need black night
    I can't see dark night
    Maybe I'll find on the way down the line that I'm free
    Free to be me
    Black night is a long way from home Writer/s: Ian Gillan, Ian Paice, Jon Lord, Ritchie Blackmore, Roger Glover
