  • Blackberry way
    Absolutely pouring down with rain
    It's a terrible day
    Up with the lark
    Silly girl I don't know what to say
    She was running away
    So now I'm standing on the corner
    Lost in the things that I said
    What am I supposed to do now

    Goodbye blackberry way
    I can't see you, I don't need you
    Goodbye blackberry way
    Sure to want me back another day

    Down to the park
    Overgrowing but the trees are bare
    There's a memory there
    Boats on the lake
    Unattended now for love to drown
    I'm incredibly down
    Just like myself they are neglected
    Turn with my eyes to the wall
    What an I supposed to do now

    Goodbye Blackberry Way
    I can't see you, I don't need you
    Goodbye Blackberry Way
    Sure to want me back another day

    Run for the train
    Look behind ya for she may be there
    Said a thing in the air
    Blackberry Way
    See the battlefields of careless sins
    Cast to the wind
    So full of emptiness without her
    Lost in the words that I said
    What am I supposed to do now

    Goodbye Blackberry Way
    I can't see you, I don't need you
    Goodbye Blackberry Way
    Sure to want me back another day

    Goodbye Blackberry Way
    I can't see you, I don't need you
    Goodbye Blackberry Way
    Sure to want me back another day

    Goodbye Blackberry Way
    I can't see you, I don't need you
    Goodbye Blackberry Way
    Sure to want me back another day Writer/s: ROY WOOD

  • Les from FranceBlackberry Way was the title track to a film I watched as a kid in the ABC kids cinema club. That was back in the early 60's. The film was about a lot of hippies taking over a furniture store but cannot remember the name of the film and it does not seem to be listed in any website about the song and the Move.
  • Bengan from SwedenYes. Blackberry Way was included as a bonus track on some of the remastered records. 2007 and 2016.

  • Edward Pearce from Ashford, Kent, EnglandAn alternative mix of Blackberry Way was included on the 2007 reissue of Shazam.
  • Zabadak from London, EnglandThe band's only number one in the UK.
  • Ed from Canton, OhGet your songfacts straight. Blackberry Way was not on the Shazam album. It was released as a single in December 1968 and the Shazam album was released in 1970. But you are right, the Shazam cover is pretty cool - it has the 60's feel all over it.
