Hendrix Quotes

Music doesn’t lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.

Jimi Hendrix

Sometimes you want to give up the guitar, you’ll hate the guitar. But if you stick with it, you’re gonna be rewarded.

Jimi Hendrix

You have to go on and be crazy. Craziness is like heaven.

Jimi Hendrix

All Along The Watchtower

There must be some kind of way outta here
Said the joker to the thief
There’s too much confusion
I can’t get no relief.


Business men, they drink my wine
Plowman dig my earth
None were level on the mind
Nobody up at his word
Hey, hey!


No reason to get excited
The thief he kindly spoke
There are many here among us
Who feel that life is but a joke
But, uh, but you and I, we’ve been through that
And this is not our fate
So let us stop talkin’ falsely now
The hour’s getting late, hey!


All along the watchtower
Princes kept the view
While all the women came and went
Barefoot servants, too
Outside in the cold distance 
A wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching
And the wind began to howl.

Jimi Hendrix

Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair and let us huddle together as darkness takes over. We are at home amidst the birds and the trees, for we are children of nature.
