There's a red house over yonder
That's where my baby stays
Lord, there's a red house over yonder, baby
Oh, that's where my baby stays
I ain't been home to see my baby
In ninety-nine and one half days

Wait a minute, something's wrong here
The key won't unlock this door
Wait a minute, something's wrong
Lord, have mercy, this key won't unlock this door, something's going wrong here
I have a bad, bad feeling
My baby don't live here no more
That's alright, I still got my guitar
Look out, now

Well, I might as well uh, go on back down
Way back upon the hill
Lord, I might as well go back over yonder
Way back yonder 'cross the hill
Guess if my baby don't love me no more
I know her sister will

Maybe there's room in the pantheon for more than one master...

Nice pic, sfyi2001!
Looks like Jimi just sawed off one of the cutaways on a right-handed Strat (copy) to access those high frets.

Ya mean there use to be guitar players that could play mind bending, hypnotic, melodic, harmonic, rhythmic, dissonance, trippy music that could get you "high"?

Nah....that never happened. If it really did, you would see today's bands continuing the tradition, wouldn''t ya?     
The ladies in my pottery studio aren't diggin' this.....
Is this like the "hit single" version? I don't recall hearing one anywhere near this short - this clocks in at under 4 minutes!  I guess he felt like making this one short and to the point.. it's still great, but let's hear the man jam!.
Thanks.  Love this song.

Excellent! He left us way too early...
Great song, indeed.  The best rendition I know of appears on his difficult to find live album Hendrix in the West. .That rendition is incendiary.
10 times 10 to the tenth.
