When a Blind Man Cries

Written by Blackmore/Gillan/Glover/Lord/Paice
If you're leaving, close the door
I'm not expecting people, anymore
Hear me grieving, lying on the floor
Whether drunk or dead, I really ain't too sure

        I'm a blind man
        I'm a blind man
        And my world is pale
        When a blind man cries
        Lord, you know
        There ain't a sadder tale

Had a friend once, in a room
Had a good time, but it ended much too soon
In a cold month, in that room
We found a reason, for the things we had to do

        I'm a blind man
        I'm a blind man
        Now my room is cold
        When a blind man cries
        Lord, you know
        He feels it from his soul

        I'm a blind man
        I'm a blind man
        And my world is pale
        When a blind man cries
        Lord, you know
        There ain't a sadder tale
