In Remembrance


A suffusion of yellow
Didn't know what time it was the lights were low
I leaned back on my radio oh oh
Some cat was layin down some rock n roll lotta soul, he said
Then the loud sound did seem to fade
Came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase
That werent no d.j. that was hazy cosmic jive

Said you sailed a big ship, said you sailed away.
Didn't know the right thing to say.

I'd love to get a letter, like to know what's what.
Hope the weather's good and it's not too hot for you
