Song Description

This is a total restoration of this recording from 1971 and is featured on the new CD, "Beetles Are Coming". This song came from Chet's first CD, "Time Loop" and uses a very interesting tuning. The whole record is filled with songs based on unusual tunings and string configurations. This song was awarded "The Best Name Song Award" for August 2011 at Broadjam. A song about a symbolic female figure who comes and completes a man.... This song was inspired by my study of the tenets of Greek Mythology. This was a Top Ten radio song back in 1972.

1.
Electra come down from above
Come from the shrouding skies
Share in a conversation
Teach me contemplation, please
CHORUS
Is it true you grow constantly
Is it so good to be wise
Offer me your meditations
And I'll give you my touch and my eyes
Oh, Electra
Oh, Electra
Verse 2
Then I gave you my soul
And you gave me your dreams
And all was at peace
All was at peace
Then I gave you my touch
And you gave me a warmth that I never knew
All was at peace
ELectra come to me here
Bathe in love's pure beams
For you know my soul
Yes, And I know your dreams
CHORUS
Is it true that you've waited for me
Across the sands of time
To offer me no limitations
And to give me your love and your life
Oh, ELectra
Oh, Electra
BRIDGE
Then you gave me your soul
And I gave you my dreams
And our love was at peace
Our love was at peace
Then you gave me your touch
And I gave you a warmth that you never knew
Our love was at peace
VERSE 3.
Electra come to me here
Bathe in love's pure beams
For I know your soul
Yes, and you know my dreams
CHORUS
Is it true we grow constantly
Is so good to be wise
Offer me your meditations
And I'll give you my touch and my eyes
Oh, Electra
Oh, Electra
