Stepping Stone

Album: Cry Of Love (1970)
  • I sure got the blues this morning, baby
    Yeah! and I'm here to tell you about it
    So you might as well pick up on it!
    I'm a man

    At least I'm tryin' to be
    I've lived before
    The other half of me
    I've lived before

    That you don't want me
    But in this search
    For nothing desperately
    Oh, I'm tryin' tryin'

    Not to be a fool
    I'm tryin' tryin'
    Lord to keep my cool, baby tryin' so hard to keep it together
    After I find, baby

    That true love of mine
    I'm just rollin' screamin'
    Cryin' flyin'
    Can't be trusted, but busted

    Rolling stone
    You're a woman
    At least you say you are
    You're a woman

    At least you look like you are
    You're a woman
    At least you taste like you are
    But you can take it off

    In bed with my guitar
    And then you leave them
    Throw me outside
    To cry, cry

    To the moon and the nighttime
    Save my soul,
    You can't find
    All you want is a ticket to ride

    After you show me everything
    It did prove otherwise
    You just rollin', screamin', cryin' good love is sometime, but
    Can't be trusted

  • Kevin from Los Angeles, CaActually, it was never on the "Cry of Love"'s first LP appearence was on the deleted "War Heroes" LP and that version had Mitch Mitchell over dubs and more guitar tracks.
    The original single mix with Buddy Miles ( the better one I think)is on the Voodoo Child compilation.
