Blackberry Way

The Move, Roy Wood

About Blackberry Way

"Blackberry Way" is a 1968 single by English band The Move. Written by Roy Wood and produced by Jimmy Miller, "Blackberry Way" was a bleak counterpoint to the sunny psychedelia of earlier recordings. It nevertheless became the band's most successful single, reaching number 1 on the UK Singles Chart in February 1969. Richard Tandy, who later played keyboards with Wood's next band Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), played harpsichord on "Blackberry Way". Despite the success of the single, the style of psychedelia-tinged pop sat uneasily with guitarist Trevor Burton. He left the group shortly after. It is cited as inspired by The Beatles' "Penny Lane". The B-side was specially written for the band by David Scott-Morgan.

Blackberry way 
Absolutely pouring down with rain 
It's a terrible day 
Up with the lark 
Silly girl I don't know what to say 
She was running away 
So now I'm standing on the corner 
Lost in the things that I said 
What am I supposed to do now 

Goodbye blackberry way 
I can't see you, I don't need you 
Goodbye blackberry way 
Sure to want me back another day 

Down to the park 
Overgrowing but the trees are bare 
There's a memory there 
Boats on the lake 
Unattended now for love to drown 
I'm incredibly down 
Just like myself they are neglected 
Turn with my eyes to the wall 
What an I supposed to do now 

Goodbye Blackberry Way 
I can't see you, I don't need you 
Goodbye Blackberry Way 
Sure to want me back another day 

Run for the train 
Look behind ya for she may be there 
Said a thing in the air 
Blackberry Way 
See the battlefields of careless sins 
Cast to the wind 
So full of emptiness without her 
Lost in the words that I said 
What am I supposed to do now 

Goodbye Blackberry Way 
I can't see you, I don't need you 
Goodbye Blackberry Way 
Sure to want me back another day 

Goodbye Blackberry Way 
I can't see you, I don't need you 
Goodbye Blackberry Way 
Sure to want me back another day 

Goodbye Blackberry Way 
I can't see you, I don't need you 
Goodbye Blackberry Way 
Sure to want me back another day
