    1968 wasn't just The Summer of Love. Lots of things kept happening 
    all the year through. The band had already been playing most of the 
    songs from this album for some months when they began recording it, 
    so they knew what they wanted to do. And what they did was show the 
    world what an amazing band this was and would be for many years. 
    For me THIS WAS is much more than a blues album as the press called
    it. It is like a fine jewel's first glimpse. 


     

            
                Gonna lose my way tomorrow, 
                Gonna give away my car. 
                I'd take you along with me, 
                But you would not go so far.
 
                Don't see what I do not want to see, 
                You don't hear what I don't say. 
                Won't be what I don't want to be, 
                I continue in my way.
 
                Don't see, see, see where I'm goin', 
                Don't see, see, see where I'm goin', 
                Don't see, see, see where I'm goin' to, 
                I don't want to. 

      Everyday I see the mornin' come on in the same old way. 
      I tell myself tomorrow brings me things I would not dream today.

      Most of this song is played with a slide. You must tune high e 
      string down to d to get a G open tuning. (You can mute A and E
      strings with a little piece of cloth or celulose paper).
