‎[1965]‎
Parole di Curtis Knight (1945-1999), il musicista di Harlem con cui Hendrix cominciò la sua breve ‎ma intensissima avventura musicale.‎
Arrangiamento musicale di Jimi Hendrix a partire da “Like a Rolling Stone” che Bob Dylan ‎aveva scritto e pubblicato come singolo pochi mesi prima, per poi includerla nell’album “Highway ‎‎61 Revisited”.‎
Il brano fu registrato allo Studio 76 di New York alla fine del 1965 e fu poi incluso nell’album “Get ‎That Feeling”, con Jimi Hendrix, Curtis Knight e la sua band, “The Squires”.‎

Get That Feeling
This is a song that asks a question
And if you listen I think you'll get the message
If you walked into a restaurant, and you were hungry
You had the money to get yourself something to eat
Yeah
Somebody told you to go around to the backdoor to get it
Even though he wasn't going to give it to you free‎

Yeah
Yeah
Tell me how
Yeah, Oh
How would you feel?‎
Oh, Yeah
If you were me?‎
Yeah, Oh
How would you feel?‎
Think about it now
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Take the little children by the hand
And you want to guide them and protect them
On their very first day of school
Yeah
Now I just wanna ask one question
Do you think all the little children should be punished for the sins of all the older fools?‎

Yeah
Yeah
Tell me how
Yeah, Oh
How would you feel?‎
Oh, yeah
If you were me?‎
Yeah, Oh
How would you feel?‎
Think about it now.‎
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

You walk to the corner
And you stand at a place called the bus stop
And the bus pulls up and a man opens up the door
Yeah, oh
He might, ha, look at you funny but he takes your money
But then he says "Hey your not one of us! Sit in the back of the bus!"‎

Yeah yeah
Tell me how
Yeah, oh
How would you feel?‎
Yeah, oh
If you were me?‎
Now, yeah
How would you feel?‎
Oh, yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

You pick up the morning paper
You read about people fighting and dying somewhere in a foreign land‎
Oh, yeah
Right here people are fighting and dying
And all they're trying to do is get equal rights as the constitution planned

Yeah yeah
Now tell me how
Yeah, oh
How would you feel?‎
Yeah, oh
If you were me?‎
Think about it now
And tell me
How would you feel?‎
Yeah

All your little children are trying to get to school
So they can get an education
So they can find a great place
In this wonderful nation
And if you went downtown
And people waited on you
And they didn't accept you
Even though you knew they didn't want you
And everywhere you looked around
All you could see was hate in people's eyes
And you turned it on them
And just tried to understand one another
And get together
And try to life happily
Try to be brothers
In this great big wonderful nation

Yeah, yeah
Tell me how
Yeah, oh
How would you feel?‎
