"Blue Jay Way" is a song written by George Harrison and recorded by the Beatles. It was released in 1967 on the band's Magical Mystery Tour album and EP. The song is named after a street in the Hollywood Hills where Harrison stayed in August 1967, and the lyrics document his waiting for friends to find their way there through fog-ridden Los Angeles. As with several of Harrison's compositions from this period, "Blue Jay Way" incorporates aspects of Indian classical music, although the Beatles used only Western instrumentation on the track. Recorded during the group's psychedelic period, it features extensive use of studio techniques such as flanging, Leslie rotary effect, and reversed tape sounds. Wikipedia

Song Lyrics

There`s a fog upon L.A.
And my friends have lost their way
We`ll be over soon they said
Now they`ve lost themselves instead
Please don`t be long please don`t you be very long
Please don`t be long for I may be asleep
Well it only goes to show
And I told them where to go
Ask a policeman on the street
There`s so many there to meet
Please don`t be long please don`t you be very long
Please don`t be long for I may be asleep
Now it`s past my bed I know
And I`d really like to go
Soon will be the breath of day
Sitting here in Blue Jay Way
Please don`t be long please don`t you be very long
Please don`t be long for I may be asleep
Please don`t be long please don`t you be very long
Please don`t be long
Please don`t be long please don`t you be very long
Please don`t be long
Please don`t be long please don`t you be very long
Please don`t be long
Don`t be long, don`t be long, don`t be long
Don`t be long, don`t be long, don`t be long
