Jimi Hendrix - Purple Haze - Live 1970

"Purple Haze" is a song written by Jimi Hendrix and released as the second record single by the Jimi Hendrix Experience on March 17, 1967. As a record chart hit in several countries and the opening number on the Experience's debut American album, it was many people's first exposure to Hendrix's psychedelic rock sound.


Purple haze, all in my brain

Lately things they don't seem the same

Actin' funny, but I don't know why

Excuse me while I kiss the sky

Purple haze, all around

Don't know if I'm comin' up or down

Am I happy or in misery?

What ever it is, that girl put a spell on me

Help me

Help me

Oh, no, no

Ooh, ah

Ooh, ah

Ooh, ah

Ooh, ah, yeah!

Purple haze all in my eyes

Don't know if it's day or night

You got me blowin', blowin' my mind

Is it tomorrow, or just the end of time?


Help me

Ahh, yeah, yeah, purple haze

Oh, no, oh

Oh, help me

Tell me, tell me, purple haze

I can't go on like this

(Purple haze) you're makin' me blow my mind

Purple haze, n-no, no

(Purple haze)
