Gotta Hole In My Soul: (Written September 1966)
It was written during a particular and acute case of good ol’ fashioned poor judgment, and my buddy Hooter was there to guide me spiritually and technically, as my hands were then being guided by an enormous balsawood squid from Russia.


Gotta Hole In My Soul
I gotta hole in my soul that wont wash away
My 2 black boots are shakin’ harder every day
I say I’m leavin’, but you’re beggin’ me to stay
I just might have to chase my dreams
I got an image of your face that’s getting’ fuzzier with time
So very fuzzy I can’t even make a rhyme
Incredibly fuzzy, I’m serious this time
I just might have to chase my dreams

I just took a bunch of hits, and I drank a jug o’ wine
Pretty soon, I’ll be feelin’ mighty fine
The doses haven’t hit me, but I’ll give it a little time
The carpet just engulfed my feet

O my god, I am tripping really hard
I might smear jelly on my body in the yard
On second thought that might be kinda bad
I think I’ll contemplate the concept of heat

Later on I will realize that heat is merely a construct of the mind
That I’m a spirit that can vomit time
And all my friends are nazi’s with radio’s for eyes
I sure hope my belt stops threatening me
