Jimbo's Necklace Did Not Contain Blue / Turquoise Beads

Posted by MojosBeads on December 17, 2017 at 11:55 AM Comments comments (0)

Hello world. I hope everyone is having a nice holiday season and spending time with family. I wanted to write something about the rumor of blue or turqoise beads being present in Jim's original necklace that he wore during Joel Brodsky's photo shoot in September 1967. A color version (as opposed to black and white) of one of the photo shoot's picture has surfaced, and the middle green bead appears to be turqoise. This photo was recently emailed to me, I've attached it below:

Jim Morrison - An American Prayer [1969] - The Ghost Song (extended version)

Posted by MojosBeads on January 13, 2013 at 7:10 AM Comments comments (0)

Awake

Shake dreams from your hair

My pretty child, my sweet one

Choose the day and choose the sign of your day

The day's divinity

First thing you see

 

A vast radiant beach and cooled jeweled moon

Couples naked race down by it's quiet side

And we laugh like soft, mad children

Smug in the wooly cotton brains of infancy

The music and voices are all around us

 

Choose they croon the ancient ones

The tim...

Bird of prey

Bird of prey

Flying high

Flying high

In the summer sky

Bird of prey

Bird of prey

Flying high

Flying high

Gently pass on by

Bird of prey

Bird of prey

Flying high

Flying high

Am I going to die

Bird of prey

Bird of prey

Flying high

Flying high

Take me on your flight

Then we hear a whistle like a bosun's pipe

And the carnival immediately begins

Gradually mixing rain

Thunder

Bullfight

Football

Playground

War

Penny-arcade

Babylon fading

Jim Morrison - An American Prayer [1969] - A Feast Of Friends

Posted by MojosBeads on January 13, 2013 at 7:10 AM Comments comments (0)

Wow, I'm sick of doubt

Live in the light of certain south

Cruel bindings

The servants have the power

Dog-men and their mean women

pulling poor blankets over our sailors

 

I'm sick of dour faces staring at me from the TV tower

I want roses in my garden bower, dig

Royal babies, rubies must now replace

Aborted strangers in the mud

These mutants, blood-meal for the plant that's plowed

 

They are waiting to tak...

Jim Morrison - An American Prayer [1969] - Freedom Exists

Posted by MojosBeads on January 13, 2013 at 7:10 AM Comments comments (0)

Did you know freedom exists in a school book

Did you know madmen are running our prison

Within a jail, within a gale

Within a white free protestant maelstrom

We're perched headlong on the edge of boredom

We're reacing for death on the end of a candle

We're trying for something that's already found us

Jim Morrison - An American Prayer [1969] - Hour For Magic

Posted by MojosBeads on January 13, 2013 at 7:05 AM Comments comments (0)

Resident mockery

Give us an hour for magic

We of the purple glove

We of the starling flight

And velvet hour

We of arabic pleasure's breed

We of the sundome and the night

 

Give us a creed to believe

A night of lust

Give us trust in the Night

Give of color hundred hues

A rich mandala for me and you

 

And for your silky pillowed house

A head, wisdom and a bed

 

Troubled decree

Jim Morrison - An American Prayer [1969] - An American Prayer

Posted by MojosBeads on January 13, 2013 at 7:05 AM Comments comments (0)

Do you know the warm progress under the stars

Do you know we exist

Have you forgotten the keys to the kingdom

Have you been borne yet and are you alive

 

Let's reinvent the gods, all the myths of the ages

Celebrate symbols from deep elder forests

Have you forgotten the lessons of the ancient war

We need great golden copulations

 

The fathers are cackling in trees of the forest

And our mother is dead in the sea

Jim Morrison - An American Prayer [1969] - The Hitchhiker

Posted by MojosBeads on January 13, 2013 at 7:05 AM Comments comments (0)

Thoughts in time and out of season

The Hitchhiker stood by the side of the road

And leveled his thumb

In the calm calculus of reason

 

Hi, how you doing?

I just got back into town

L.A.

I was out on the desert for awhile

Yeah, um, in the middle of it

Right

Hey listen man I really got a problem

Well, uh

When I was out on the desert, ya know

I don't know how to tell you

but, ah, I killed somebody

Lament for my cock

Sore and crucified

I seek to know you

Acquiring soulful wisdom

You can open walls of mystery, stripshow

 

How to acquire death in the morning show

TV death which the child absorbs

Deathwell mystery which makes me write

Slow train the death of my cock gives life

Forgive the poor old people who gave us entry

Taught us god in the child's prayer in the night

Jim Morrison - An American Prayer [1969] - World On Fire

Posted by MojosBeads on January 13, 2013 at 7:05 AM Comments comments (0)

The world on fire

Taxi from Africa

The grand hotel

He was drunk

A big party last night

Back going back in all directions sleeping these insane hours

I'll never wake up in a good mood again

I'm sick of these stinky boots

All hail the American night

 

What was that

I don't know

Sounds like, gunsm thunder

 

(Roadhouse Blues)

 

Alright! Alright! Alright!

Hey listen! Listen! Listen, man! Listen, man!

I don't know how many you people believe in astrology

Yeah that's right, that's right, baby

I...I am a Sagittarius

The most philosophical of all the signs

But anyway I don't believe in it

I think it's a bunch of b...

Jim Morrison - An American Prayer [1969] - Curses, Invocations

Curses, Invocations

Weird bate-headed mongrels

I keep expecting one of you to rise

Large buxom obese queens

Garden hogs and cunt veterans

Quaint cabbage saints

Shit hoarders and individualists

Drag strip officials

 

Tight lipped losers and lustful fuck salesman

My militant dandies

All strange orders of monsters

Hot on the trail of the woodvine

We welcome you to our procession

 

Here come the Co...

Jim Morrison - An American Prayer [1969] - The Movie

The movie will begin in five moments

The mindless voice announced

All those unseated will await the next show

 

We filed slowly, languidly into the hall

The auditorium was vast and silent

As we seated and were darkened, the voice continued

 

The program for this evening is not new

You've seen this entertainment through and through

You've seen your birth your life and death

you might recall all of the rest

Did yo...

Jim Morrison - An American Prayer [1969] - Stoned Immaculate

Posted by MojosBeads on January 13, 2013 at 7:05 AM Comments comments (0)

I'll tell you this

No eternal reward will forgive us now

For wasting the dawn

 

Back in those days everything was simpler and more confused

One summer night, going to the pier

I ran into two young girls

The blonde one was called Freedom

The dark one, Enterprise

We talked and they told me this story

 

Now listen to this

I'll tell you about Texas radio and the big beat

Soft driven slow and mad like some new ...

Jim Morrison - An American Prayer [1969] - Angels And Sailors

Posted by MojosBeads on January 13, 2013 at 7:05 AM Comments comments (0)

Angels and sailors

Rich girls

Backyard fences

Tents

Dreams watching each other narrowly

soft luxuriant cars

Girls in garages stripped

Out to get liquor and clothes

Half gallons of wine and six-packs of beer

Jumped, humped, born to suffer

made to undress in the wilderness

 

I will never treat you mean

Never start no kind of scene

I'll tell you, every place and person that I've been

 

Alway...

Jim Morrison - An American Prayer [1969] - Latino Chrome

My gang will get you

 

Scenes of rape in the arroyo

Seduction in cars, abandoned buildings

Fights at the food stand

Dust

The shoes

Open shirts and raised collars

Bright sculptured hair

 

Hey man, you want girls, pills, grass? C'mon...

I show you good time

This place has everything, C'mon...

I show you
