DescriptionStevie Ray Vaughan Handwritten Lyrics for "Wall of Denial" With Handwritten Lyrics for an Untitled and Unreleased Song (Circa 1989). Each example is written in black soft-tip ink on a 7.25" x 5" sheet of lined, yellow paper. The first example features 13 lines (one scratched out) in SRV's handwriting comprising the fourth and half of the fifth verse of the song "Wall of Denial" from the In Step album released June 6, 1989. "Simple things in life / Bring the greatest pleasure / A smile a kiss / A little babys [sic] laughter / It makes no difference if you run away in fear / Its [sic] the little things in life / That (we/you) hold so near / No matter what the trouble / We carrying round inside / We're never safe from truth / [inked out line] / In truth we can survive". Comparing this example with the final lyrics the only variations are basically pronoun choices. The second example consists of seven lines: "Fear of the unknown / is like a wall made / of stone / It was built to last / Until its usefulness passed / I think I'll tear it down / And make a road". This latter example is apparently lyrics for an unfinished song written during the In Step album time frame. Both examples feature bright, legible lyrics in excellent condition.
