Golden light above you, show me where you're from
The magic in your eye bewitches all you gaze upon
You stand up on your hill and they be bop all around you
They wonder where you're from, they wonder where I found you?

Oh, my love, it's a long way
Where you're from it's a long way?

I tried to understand you, I tried to love you right
The way you smile and touch me always sets my heart alight
Your lips are like a fire burning through my soul
And people ask me where you're from? They really wanna know

Oh, my soul, it's a long way
Where you're from it's a long way?

Magic woman wreckin' up my soul
Things you tell me have never been told
Magic woman I don't know
Electric before me I love you so, I love you so

You're racing like a fireball, dancing like a ghost
You're Gemini and I don't know which one I like the most
My head is gettin' broken and my mind is gettin' bust
But now I'm comin' with you down the road of golden dust

Oh my love, it's a long way
Where you're from it's a long way?

The golden light above you, show me where you're from
The magic in your eye bewitches all you gaze upon
Dtand up on your hill and they be bop all around you
They wonder where you're from, oh yeah, they wonder where I found you?

Oh my love, it's a long way
Where you're from it's a long way?

Album cover looks more like a sperm cell than fireball. :D
Love the song.
After 40 years of listening to this, I still reckon there is no better rock drum intro than this. Still gets to me.
This band's philosophy, style never changed. Metal first of it's type, vocals  strong and so original
Richie Blackmore kills it on this album

Love the song.
Thanks RP. This is possibly their most diverse album - noteworthy for the quirky little country style gem "Anyone's Daughter". Thanks for the memories.
More Deep Purple!
Lazy..?
Great choice Bill! I think Deep Purple may be a acquired taste for some, unless you grew up in the early 70's like some of us did.
Well alright...it's a toe tapper
That was very satisfying to hear.
Been a long time. 
Huh. I actually like a number of old Deep Purple songs, but I wouldn't call this one of their best, and it seems an odd choice for RP.
My general disdain for Deep Purple hasn't altered over the decades.
I love it when Bill gives us a peek into what he listens to when he isn't feeling quite so chill {#Drummer}. Rock On! This was a fantastic album! 

Gotta love a Hammond!!  
Wow how many years since I last heard this track?

One of the soundtrack of my youth.

Still worth a 9. 

Excellent for speaker exercise .
Yes.
Listening to on an 8track over and over again in a Vega. Thems were the days. 
Speakers are struggling as the rock onslaught continues.

  I doubt that this can be considered a praise to the music of the Band Deep Purple ..... but it is a good start...lol

I played grooves into this song on the lp when I was in high school. There are a lot of good songs on this album.
NICE!!!
