Snowblind Friend

Album: Steppenwolf 7 (1970)
Charted: 60
  • You say it was this morning when you last saw your good friend
    Lyin' on the pavement with a misery on his brain
    Stoned on some new potion he found upon the wall
    Of some unholy bathroom in some ungodly hall
    He only had a dollar to live on 'til next Monday
    But he spent it on some comfort for his mind
    Did you say you think he's blind?

    Someone should call his parents, a sister or a brother
    And they'll come to take him back home on a bus
    But he'll always be a problem to his poor and puzzled mother
    Yeah he'll always be another one of us
    He said he wanted Heaven but prayin' was too slow
    So he bought a one way ticket on an airline made of snow
    Did you say you saw your good friend flyin' low?
    Flyin' low
    Dyin' slow
