Whitesnake - Blindman Lyrics




I was dreaming of the past,
Why do good times never last
Help me Jesus, show the way
I can't hold on another day

I was hungry, felling low,
I just couldn't make out which way to go
Chasing rainbows that have no end,
The road is long without friend

Be my friend, be my brother,
Be the piper, play the call
Across the seven seas of wonder
Be the guardian of my soul

Just a young man looking homeward,
Watching the sun go down again
Across the water, the sun is shining,
But, will it ever, will it ever be the same

Be my friend, be my brother,
Be the piper, play the call
Across the seven seas of wonder
Be the guardian of my soul

I need somebody, I need someone,
I need somebody to call my own
Like a blindman, I can feel the heat of the sun,
But, like a blindman
I don't know, I don't know,
I don't know where it's coming from

Be my friend, be my brother,
Be the piper, play the call
Across the seven seas of wonder
Be the guardian of my soul

I need somebody, I need someone,
I need somebody to call my own
Like a blindman, I can feel the heat of the sun,
But, like a blindman
I don't know, I don't know,
I don't know where is coming from

  1. Guestar

    This ain't the normal album version, I'm sure of it! In fact it's SOOO much better than the album version. It's both much softer and much more emotional, but has much more punch and impact than the one I'm familiar with. I absolutely love it!

  2. Ache H

    Coverdale 's soul touching poem; other rock poet like him would be Rodgers & Mercury.

  3. Aννα Ζαχαριαδου

    ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  4. Portcullis

    Great song, from the (pre-sell out) days when Whitesnake were worth listening to.

  5. Nozomi J.

    This song stimulates my soul.

  6. The Brand23

    I was dreaming of the past,
    Why do good times never last
    Help me Jesus, show the way
    I can't hold on another day
    I was hungry, felling low,
    I just couldn't make out which way to go
    Chasing rainbows that have no end,
    The road is long without friend
    Be my friend, be my brother,
    Be the piper, play the call
    Across the seven seas of wonder
    Be the guardian of my soul
    Just a young man looking homeward,
    Watching the sun go down again
    Across the water, the sun is shining,
    But, will it ever, will it ever be the same
    Be my friend, be my brother,
    Be the piper, play the call
    Across the seven seas of wonder
    Be the guardian of my soul
    I need somebody, I need someone,
    I need somebody to call my own
    Like a blindman, I can feel the heat of the sun,
    But, like a blindman
    I don't know, I don't know,
    I don't know where it's coming from
    Be my friend, be my brother,
    Be the piper, play the call
    Across the seven seas of wonder
    Be the guardian of my soul
    I need somebody, I need someone,
    I need somebody to call my own
    Like a blindman, I can feel the heat of the sun,
    But, like a blindman
    I don't know, I don't know,
    I don't know where is coming from

  7. Celine Garnier

    that's abslolutely unforgettable.

  8. Thomas Schwarz

    it doesn ´t beat the old version.

  9. simgorm

    If I had a one shot time machine I would go back to 1978, from then to 1983 I think I saw Whitesnake 23 times, including Reading and Donington twice each, the records don't do them any justice really as they were just an awesome live band, Coverdale wasn't the singer that Dio was but his power and charisma were just mega watts beyond any of the other great frontmen of the time, it was a great period for live music, I can't remember which year it was but over a ten day period I saw both Rush, Whitesnake and Van Halen, happy days.

  10. WSBCN69

    From Catalonia, màgic!

  11. Adam Crow

    Classic whitesnake say no more.

  12. Ervo Hjelt

    Music is the world's best medicine. And this is the best pill.

  13. Jonas Silva

    what a hell mr. Coverdale don't turn back to sing this kind of music? The bluesy's songs of early Whitesnake was fabulous !

  14. WSBCN69

    La voz!!

  15. Dan Shaman

    That sounds like a mix between soldier of fortune and mistreated

  16. Crazy Driver

    Great song!

  23. John W Saunders

    I remember buying this album in 1980. Coverdale was peaking and so was I.

  24. mslenthall

    Great track. Here's where it came from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOr1stg9lds

  25. Victor Borg

    Great Album. There's a lot of Purple members in this line up. Jon Lord Roger Glover Ian Paice and of course DC himself. 78-82 are the swansong years for Whitespace with so much great material

    Kevin Short

    Victor Borg Roger Glover was never in Whitesnake

  26. Goran Simić

    Bravo odlicno Koverdejlu. Genije si!

  30. everything comes back

    God bless you always Cozy Mel and Jon ... Rest in Peace , cheers for this guys

  31. Valter Santanna

    This song is so powerful...

  32. Bernd Kleiter

    A great song from WHITESNAKE's best period. Although I still like to hear Coverdale & Co., the change of style after 1987 has deprived the band of its roots.

  33. Guess Who's Coming to Dinner

    That was Quality

  34. Marco Antonio Ortega Fajardo

    Que grupo.Y que vos.cantones

    Marco Antonio Ortega Fajardo

    Que grupo.Que voz cavranos

  35. David Gadea

    Just Feeling!!! Cheers and Life On !!!

  36. Hot Rockin'

    Quite brilliant👍😃a sad lament, used to 'enjoy' drinking to this, stirs the soul. Coverdale is truly an amazing lyricist & singer☺🐛👯‍♀️Unsurpassed🐶🎤🎛Ain't gonna cry no more😭☺

  37. Andy Stow

    'Be the piper, play the call'...

  38. Wickedvoid96

    those four lines of the beginning of this song are amazing and that guitar is a incredible combination to the emotion.

  39. Blues Dude

    I love the early stuff, I saw them at Birmingham Odean, England the week after I was 21 in 1979 on the love hunter tour. I have to agree with Gus Flannagan.

  40. Anita Beat

    Great tune from Whitesnake

  41. TOTUWORLD

    Masterpiece...stop.

  42. Luiz Boscardin

    Esse disco é PHODA.

  43. Darko Belgrade

    Darko Beograde

    I grew up with this music, it's in my blood, my entire being. Every time I hear this, i feel reborn. Nothing has ever influenced me like the music of the late seventies and early eighties. Bands like Whitesnake.are forever a part of me until my dying day.

  44. SAM CASINO

    Blindman has to be the Finest Blues/Rock track ever recorded xxx

  45. Jeff Maas

    When Whitesnake was Whitesnake

  46. Zodicap

    Many versions of this one. I like this version the best. Ready N Willing, Come N Get It and Slide It In are my fav's from Whitesnake. Coverdale has lots of awesome pre and solo stuff just as good. I agree +Gus Flannagan

  47. Nigel Fortune

    The best Whitesnake song. Got me through a lot of shit...

  48. tsumapyon

    This song is the greatest of all songs of WHITESNAKE.

    Death Wish

    I agree! I also love Northwinds

    Saleh Aldooy

    tsumapyon yes 💯

    747panos

    @Death Wish I also love '' Only my soul '' . .

    Death Wish

    @747panos Fabulous song! Say you love me is awesome too! Blindman, Time & Again.....I could go on lol. David has given us sooooooo many amazing songs over the years!

  49. Last Rose Of Summer

    thanks lads for this excellent album, song👯brilliant☻

  50. Ajit Dharan

    Great lyric, like a blind man I can feel the heat of the sun, cos I'm a blind man i don't know, where it's coming from. Thinking about my buddy Bala, who just passed away. Too young. Rest in peace my friend. We'd listen to this and lament the loss of a more musical time. Best of times.

    Clive Bindley

    Like a Blindman
    I can feel the heat of the sun
    But like a blindman
    I don't know where its coming from.

    Ajit Dharan

    Clive, I stand corrected. Gracias. Great song, no?

    Clive Bindley

    Indeed it is, one of Mr Coverdale's finest.

  51. Alex trueskyblue

    Just superb saw these live twice in the 80's top song from a top Group.

  52. Izazil Son

    Too many songs that I really love to listen , but the blindman is my favourite song.great just great voices from DC . Love his voices awesome .

  53. Adriano Nosé

    Espetacular

  54. Srdjan Japan Music

    Hi There..
    Here`s a song for ya ))

    I was dreaming of the past,
    Why do good times never last
    Help me Jesus, show the way
    I can't hold on another day

    I was hungry, felling low,
    I just couldn't make out which way to go
    Chasing rainbows that have no end,
    The road is long without friend

    Be my friend, be my brother,
    Be the piper, play the call
    Across the seven seas of wonder
    Be the guardian of my soul

    Just a young man looking homeward,
    Watching the sun go down again
    Across the water, the sun is shining,
    But, will it ever, will it ever be the same

    Be my friend, be my brother,
    Be the piper, play the call
    Across the seven seas of wonder
    Be the guardian of my soul

    I need somebody, I need someone,
    I need somebody to call my own
    Like a blindman, I can feel the heat of the sun,
    But, like a blindman
    I don't know, I don't know,
    I don't know where it's coming from

    Be my friend, be my brother,
    Be the piper, play the call
    Across the seven seas of wonder
    Be the guardian of my soul

    I need somebody, I need someone,
    I need somebody to call my own
    Like a blindman, I can feel the heat of the sun,
    But, like a blindman
    I don't know, I don't know,
    I don't know where is coming from

    Last Rose Of Summer

  55. Mark brown

    This is my fav by WS cause it has that DP feel to it. Well it has DC, IP & JL but Murrey & Bernie give it that twist that Makes it WS. Awesome Chemistry.

  56. James Downie

    Great tune, great singer, but does sound very similar to Free - Be my Friend...

  57. Milos

    My favorite Snake song!

  58. Karicat Watts

    This entire album is just, ya know 🤘

  59. Be Free

    This is more than beautiful, let the sun shine again

  62. angelito rockero

    MAGNIFICO

  63. Jan Geerts

    at first I thought, this is them trying to make an Ain't No Love In The Heart Of The City of their own, but no, what a glorious and moving tune on its own it's become

    Clive Bindley

    This was on David Coverdale's first solo album called Whitesnake which was released before the band Whitesnake even existed and before they recorded
    Ain't No Love...

    Jan Geerts

    +Clive Bindley Tx for that information!

    Clive Bindley

    You're welcome.

  64. maahakka hakkamaa

    miksi venäläiset kirjoittaa omalla kielellä... englanti niin muutkin ymmärtää

  65. Shanwar Zaman

    this song tells my story. long live d.c. you are genius !

  66. joe Long

    wonderful !

  67. john taylor

    Whitesnake at their best!

  68. Sammy Garcia

    Is it just me or does this sounds like Rainbow?

    Karicat Watts

    +Clive Bindley there are hints here and there. The singing style... Not nearly as brill.... But about the ear waxing?

    Sammy Garcia

    XD ears waxed...

    Clive Bindley

    Google it!

    Sammy Garcia

    Bing it!

  72. Jamie Warrior Warlord McCallum

    underrated whitesnake song. so fucking perfect might be the best blues rock song i ever heard. i do want to cover this song so bad. can relate to this one with my own life. and my second favourite whitesnake song. always love to hear this powerful song.

    MainEventMafia4Life

    +Jamie Warrior Warlord McCallum - You're right this song is so underrated it's a crime almost. Another one of their songs from this era of their musical journey I'm a big fan of is "Only My Soul". If you haven't heard that song by Whitesnake definitely check it out as well. I don't think you will be disappointed. I inevitably will always listen to this song and "Simple Man" by Bad Company immediately following. For some reason they go together to me like peanut butter and jelly.

    Zodicap

    Absolutely (Only My Soul)!

    Death Wish

    Only my soul is hypnotic! Love Northwinds too!

  73. Pedroaf69

    Very nice song

  74. Jamie Warrior Warlord McCallum

    fucking perfect blues rock song from whitesnake. man i want to cover this so bad. can relate to this one with my own life. and my second favourite whitesnake song. coverdale so fucking amazing huge fan.

    Becky Starr

    Freaking AMAZING!!

    Jamie Warrior Warlord McCallum

    @Becky Starr it is a great song. 

  75. dave brown

    Perfect song !

  76. Gus Flannagan

    Love this song, love the album, great band... but I HATE the new stuff. Today's Whitesnake has got none of the feeling or soul or blues of the old band that went by the same name all those years ago. 1978-1982 rocks.

    Gus Flannagan

    +Clive Bindley Steal Away with Mr Moody! Have you heard Ain't Gonna Cry No More "Airplay mix"? It is well worth a listen :)

    Clive Bindley

    +Gus Flannagan
    I haven't but I'll check it out.
    Thanx for the heads up!


    We wish you well!

    lowriderskin

    Gus Flannagan spot on!

    Portcullis

    Two different bands with the same singer, 1978 to 1986, and 1987 onwards.

    Alex Zoris

    Many bands change their style, get over it finally!! Or else you can listen to AC/DC, Motorhead, Running Wild and Yngwie Malmsteen who are playing the same things all the time (i am not saying that they ain't good, i just talk about their music style).

  77. Pollito aurelin

    Be me friend be my brother

  78. Jamie Warrior Warlord McCallum

    my second favourite whitesnake song, the hidden gem on the ready and willing album. i do love the blues rock feel of this song, so damm perfect, sometimes i feel blind where do i go next, but i have my friends and family and the lady of my dreams, i just want to achieve my dream. i really love this song. 

  79. rob p

    Haven't heard  this song in years cuz its too painful
    Played it, shut my eyes, and could remember every word and inflection,mouthed along
    Most people won't know this tune, that's the travesty.
    God bless dad

    Jackie Dubois

    I haven't listened to Whitesnake in years - lost my best friend almost ten years ago, this was her favorite song. It still makes me cry. I hope you found your peace, Ina.

    God whitesnake is fucking terrible. Nothing but imitators. This is a complete rip off of the amazing Free song Be my Friend. This is pathetic. If you want to hear the proper version, go check it out.

    Mark brown

    It does have a simmirler sound to it . Black Sabbath copied a lot Deep Purple song riffs everybody grabs little bit of somebody's stuff here and there it's called influence buy other bands DC and PR is to of my favorite singers I don't think they intentionally steal other bands stuff.

    Mark brown

    Thanks for the correction on the spelling little harsh on the correction though LOL. Peace my friend.

  82. MrFoliumofdescartes

    I need some money to comb my hair,
    Need some money to run my home,
    Like a bald man, i pray to God to let me go,
    what if i'am a bald man,
    Don't know how its gonna come on

  83. Tour Player

    A very nice 1980 version !

  84. Dina Ke

    ich liebe Whitesnake...ich liebe und lebe diese Musik.....Blindman..

  85. GloryCarrier22

    I remember endlessly playing this in the 6th form common room. Awesome song, along with "Ain't Gonna Cry No More" from the same album; seen Whitesnake 5 times, including Donington 1983 and Wembley Arena 1988; love their new stuff as well!

  86. Themis Gox

    Amen, brother!

  89. Dr Death

    All those comparing David to Plant have their heads firmly up their asses! David's voice is completely different and now - as they both are older - it's David whose voice is even better. Plant wrote some great lyrics, but David never "stole" from him. Plant DID steal from a ton of blues musicians though... People just don't get it...

  90. martyn suter

    Beautiful , then came along the Cock Rock !!! Lord,Moody Marsden,Paice,Murray and Coverdale.Whitesnake,the only Whitesnake.

  91. timothyjification

    Plus Bernie Marsden, Ian Paice and Jon Lord.

  94. joshua malkin

    Blind Man is one of my favourites from Whitesnake's Ready An Willing album.

  95. Arthur Name

    R&W is a great, great, great album from front to back. All those who falsely accuse Coverdale of ripping off Robert Plant haven't heard the old, good Whitesnake albums before 1987. ...and long live Mick Moody and Neil Murray too.

  96. bash Basho

    i have this version , all the versions i found in youtube where different !! this is better .
