Break on through to the other side, break on through to the other side,
Break on through to the other side, yeah.
We chased our pleasures here, dug our treasures there
But can ya still recall the time we cried?
Break on through to the other side, break on through to the other side.
Everybody loves my baby, everybody loves my baby,
She get...She get...She get...She get...high.....
I found an island in your arms, country in your eyes,
Arms that chain, eyes that lie.

THE ORGAN SOLO
TO
"BREAK ON THROUGH"
words and music by The Doors
The guitarist in my old band worked this out with me one jam session
when we were trying to cover it. It is one of the easier solos of Ray
Manzarek to transfer to guitar because it is played on the regular
organ. Just add a bit of reverberation and chorus. It also sounds ok
on acoustic guitars.
