Messages sad in the wires.

My hair is hung down,

With the blackest of rain that I'm feeling.

With the heaviest rain I'm feeling.

NOTES:
1.  There are various Demo versions from Cream, in 1967 of this then rejected song, on Youtube:

2.  Weir of Hermiston (1896) is an unfinished novel by Robert Louis Stevenson. Many have considered 
it his masterpiece.  It was cut short by Stevenson's sudden death in 1894 from a cerebral hemorrhage. 
The novel is set in Edinburgh and the Lothians at the time of the Napoleonic Wars.
3.  This version, is different to it’s predecessors.  It actually tackles the strange key, being a 
Full Step Down and tries to best-fit the chord progressions.  Opting for D minor, as opposed to Dm7, 
as the additional 'D' note can be heard in the tune.  I’ve also opted for capturing more of the 
‘open chord’ sounds, which are less pronounced in standard tuning.
