Allman Brothers Band – Shapes Of Things Lyrics

(Keith Relf – Jim McCarty – Paul Samwell-Smith)

Verse 1:

Shapes

Of things before my eyes

Just teach me to despise

Will time make man more wise

Verse 2:

Here

Within my lonely frame

My eyes just hurt my brain

But will they seem the same

Chorus:

Come tomorrow

Will I be older

Come tomorrow

May be a soldier

Come tomorrow

Will I be bolder

Than today?

Verse 3:

Now

The trees are almost green

But will they still be seen

Where time and tide have been

Verse 4:

Fallen

Into your passing hands

Please don’t destroy these lands

Don’t make them desert sands

[repeat chorus]

Guitar solo:

Verse 5:

Soon

I hope that I will find

Loves deep within my mind

That won’t disgrace my kind
