Little Wing

It’s been awhile since my last entry. I’ve been all loaded on painkillers because I recently had knee surgery. So it’s time to share another song with y’all.
This song Little Wing is yet another ballad type song.  It is from the Axis: Bold as Love album.  This might even be my favorite Jimi track but it’s so hard to just pick one.  Like the past two songs I’ve shared this one shares similar characteristics. It’s short, sweet and to the point.  I believe Jimi is describing an angel--possibly his guardian angel.  When he’s sad she comes to comfort him.  He had a hard life as a child and even at the beginning of his music career.  I love how he describes her in the first few lines.  These lyrics would fit perfectly into a fairy tale story.  I believe he wanted to dedicate a song to someone who was always there for him through thick and thin.  I hope y’all enjoy this track!

Well she's walking through the clouds
With a circus mind that's running round
Butterflies and zebras
And moonbeams and fairy tales
That's all she ever thinks about
Riding with the wind.
When I'm sad, she comes to me
With a thousand smiles, she gives to me free
It's alright she says it's alright
Take anything you want from me, anything
Fly on little wing,
Yeah yeah, yeah, little wing
