Moody Blues - Tuesday Afternoon - Live




This was written by lead singer Justin Hayward, who explained: "I sat down in a field, smoked a funny African cigarette, and that song just came out. It was a Tuesday afternoon."


Justin Hayward had a dog named Tuesday, but the song has nothing to do with the pooch. In his Songfacts interview, Hayward explained: "It just so happened we were sitting in the field together, that's all. But it was a Tuesday afternoon and I did smoke a joint and it was down there where I come from in the West Country and this song just came out."









Lyrics


Tuesday afternoon I'm just beginning to see Now I'm on my way It doesn't matter to me Chasing the clouds away

Something calls to me The trees are drawing me near I've got to find out why Those gentle voices I hear Explain it all with a sigh

I'm looking at myself, reflections of my mind It's just the kind of day to leave myself behind So gently swaying through the fairy-land of love If you'll just come with me you'll see the beauty of

Tuesday afternoon Tuesday afternoon

Tuesday afternoon I'm just beginning to see Now I'm on my way It doesn't matter to me Chasing the clouds away Something calls to me The trees are drawing me near I've got to find out why Those gentle voices I hear Explain it all with a sigh

Evening has come to pass The time of day doesn't last Evening, has earned its place today I'm tired of working away

Working, living it brings Only way to have those things Toiling has bought too many tears Turn 'round all those past years

Evening time to get away Evening time to get away Evening time to get away 'Til next day

Live all you people You can't see where you're at It doesn't really hurt you So that can't be bad Live all you people You can't see where you're at It doesn't really hurt you So that can't be bad

Evening time to get away Evening time to get away
