  • Drifting, on a sea of foregotten tear drops
    On a life boat sailing for, your love
    Sailing home
    Ah ah ah

    Drifting on a sea of old heart breaks
    On a life boat sailing for, your love
    Sailing home
    Sailing
    Oh Writer/s: JIMI HENDRIX

  • Charlie from Virginia Beach, VaI wish I could post this at facebook for my friends. Some people don't know he could do this.
  • Barry from New York, NyAnyone ever check out the film RAINBOW BRIDGE? That was made (at least Henrix's appearences) during a break in the recording sessions for Hendrix's new album. That's one long mess of a movie, long and boring. Luckily the Jimi Hendrix concert footage livens things up a bit but unfortunately only a brief portion exits in this film.
  • Mota from .Wow....what can you say about this song and the lyrics? A very sad sounding song but also beautiful.
