She went out And found Her father face down on the ground Out in the cold
Walked her way 'round A hill where the sun's sinking down Into the snow
Oh, white caps of the waves slap Like last hand claps And the dark Water dies in the crash Is sucked back with a moan Smoke on the coast And old, piled fathers Soft-sighing daughters Where does it go
It's a dream now I'll describe Let your mind drift on down Like so To when the world was young Big sky Blue with a dead Bachelor's tongue Blood-red bloom on the rose
So, some line someone told Says, "Even light can get old" Oh, slobbering lovers Drink-clinking brothers They don't have to tell us 'Cause we know
"What a way down What a ride What a slide Spin around What a life to have known What a time"
And how I was singing out in a crowd Of a thousand of the most frightening faces I've known When the lighthouse Lending a sight, finally went out What a fright we felt in that night Friends, just shout it all out All the 'why's and 'no-no's All the cries in your throat
How right We felt With our hands tightly closed Around something we broke And then our whimpering sisters Sobbing well-wishers
Well, it's over Just let my hand go

Jimi Hendrix opened for The Monkees on their 1967 tour, and it did not go well. The young, mostly female crowd shouted "Davy" when Hendrix sang the word "Lady" in "Foxy Lady" in honor of who they came to see: Monkees lead singer Davy Jones.
His keyboard work helped define the Muscle Shoals sound and make him an integral part of many Neil Young recordings. Spooner is also an accomplished songwriter, whose hits include "I'm Your Puppet" and "Cry Like A Baby."
