So Long, Jimmy Lyrics
We were chilling out on the sofa,
Digging how the guitar goes,
In a song that no one knows.
Did you lick that line yourself,
Or did the voodoo magic help?
Does everyone have a different take?

Jimmy is a homo or a gay. And James pictured out more that being an opposite in anything like sex, is like those people no matter what their sex is going to a magician to make them feel or looked as pretty. And they could kill anyone to do that. And in this superstitious century, where market sells any wonders, you might have sold your soul to the magic. And that's hell, man! That's why people has better to find the real mate. Maybe an Arabic saying to this is, you have to eat two dates (fruits) every morning to avoid the hecks.

While lyrics certainly contain a lot of references to Jimi Hendrix (guitar, lick, voodoo, experience, fire), there is the unmistakable Riders on the Storm reference at the end. So here's a song for Jimi Hendrix with a wink to Jim Morrison also.

Nah, he's right about it being about Jim Morrison, although I can definitely see where you could get Hendrix out of that. The song's found at the end of a Doors cover album called 'Stoned Immaculate.' That's actually a really cool CD, there are covers on it by Stone Temple Pilots, Smash Mouth, and even Marylin Manson.

Yeh I'm pretty sure it's about Jimi Hendrix? I hadn't thought of Jim Morrison, but Hendrix seemed the obvious to me..references eg Or did the voodoo magic help? mesmerized by your fire Did you burn that bridge yourself. meh that's just seemed right to me, but I've always wondered since I heard it so if anyone knows for sure I'd like to know.
