A Janis & Jimi Kinda Day

As I...
look through my shot glass
Of Jack...
My CD player screams the rendition
of Summertime by Janis & Jimi for
the 13th time today....

Cause I feel Like I wanna let
Jimi's guitar riffs separate and lift
my blues away...

feels like I'm sliding in and out
of shades of gray....
I'm in a Hey Joe...or a Purple Haze
frame of mind today...

Ain't no point in tryin to feel better
this is one of those days when I'd rather
be under the weather
Shit in my world is falling apart...
and I don't feel like putting it together

I just wanna lay me down...
just my glass of Jack and me...
and listen to Janis sing
When A Woman's Left Lonely...

Then sprinkle in some of her
Kozmic Blues....
see that piece tells a broken
heart exactly what to do..

Feels like storm clouds are brewing
in my mind....
As Jimi sings Voodoo Child ...I'm
balled up on my side...
Just letting my tears fall
cause it's just that kinda day

I wanna drink my Jack and let
Janis and Jimi float me away
Until I feel better...or till
it stops raining in my mind

But... I'm in no hurry...
in this cloud of burden and worry
So I'll listen to
The Wind Cries Mary
a few more times
