87 Throw My Bones

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)
From the Deep Purple album WHOOSH!

Throwing bones is an ancient practice concerned with divining the future.

I tried a few times but it never worked properly; hindsight is much more accurate.

Throw My Bones

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)

I don't know what lies ahead
It's all a mystery man, I heard it said
You do your thing, do your best
I take a guess at what happen next

All I've got is what I need
And that's enough, as far as I can see
Why should I walk into the great unknown
When I can sit here, and throw my bones

I hear the future is so divine
But I'll just wait until I get a sign
Cos what I've got here, what I'm holding in my hand
Is better for me than some promised land

All I've got is what I need
And that's enough, far as I can see
Why should I walk into the great unknown
When I can sit here and throw my bones

What's the rush, who's to say?
You can't escape tomorrow, it's another day
I'm hanging here, I'm here on solid ground
'Cos heaven's full, or closing down

All I've got is what I need
And that's enough, as far as I can see
Why should I walk into the great unknown
When I can sit here and throw my bones
