Syd Barrett

The Madcap Laughs     3rd January 1970

“Golden Hair”    (Barrett, Joyce)                   

(These lyrics are originally from "Chamber Music" by James Joyce, 1907)

Lean out your window, Golden Hair
I heard you singing in the midnight air
My book is closed, I read no more
Watching the fire dance, on the floor
I've left my book, I've left my room
For I heard you singing through the gloom
Singing and singing, a merry air
Lean out of the window, Golden Hair.
