Blackberry Way
Absolutely pouring down with rain
Itís a terrible day

Up with a lark
Silly girl I donít know what to say
She was running away

So now Iím standing on the corner
Lost, in the things that I say
What am I supposed to do now

(Chorus)
Goodbye Blackberry Way
I canít see you
I donít need you
Goodbye Blackberry Way
Sure to want me back another day

Gone to the park
Overgrowing but the trees are bare
Thereís a memory there

Boats on the lake
Unattended now, theyíre all to drown
Iím incredibly down

Just like myself they are neglected
Turn, with my eyes to the war
What am I supposed to do now

(Chorus)
Goodbye Blackberry Way
I canít see you
I donít need you
Goodbye Blackberry Way
Sure to want me back another day

Run for the train
Look behind you for she may be there
Say I think youíre the girl

Blackberry Way
See the battlefields of care or sins
Cast to the winds

So full of accidents without her
Lost in the words that I said
What am I supposed to do now-w

(Chorus Ė repeat to fade / Refrain - Ripetizione in sfumato)

Goodbye Blackberry Way
I canít see you
I donít need you
Goodbye Blackberry Way
Sure to want me back another day

 

Note

     

This song written by Roy Wood, led to success in the UK and USA in 1968 with his Move, was covered with great success of in Italy in 1969 by Equipe 84  as Tutta mia la cittŗ (the town is all mine).
Blackberry Way, the band's fifth single, reached #1 among singles in the UK in 1968 and was the most successful hit of the group (the next single, Curly, will still be in the charts the following year). It 'a song considered important for the innovative use of the mellotron, an instrument "synthetic" (simulating the string orchestra), performed in this case probably by the same Wood, who has great space few very soon after in the progressive genre. The next group of Roy Wood, the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), will be among the first proposing a of the mix of classical and rock. The keyboardist Richard Tandy, in this song playing harpsichord, was also with Wood in the ELO.
