I Get Stoned

I Get Stoned
Studio demo 31 October 1966 
* Unreleased

Written by Syd Barrett
Produced by Peter Jenner and Andrew King

Lyrics (incomplete):
Sitting here all alone
I get stoned

Lead Vocals: Syd Barrett

Andrew King: "I Get Stoned was probably the first song that Syd ever wrote... A very simple little song."

Also known (and frequently performed) as Stoned Alone, this was apparently recorded as a demo at Thompson Recording Studio, along with Interstellar Overdrive and Silas Lane. However, the recording did not survive the years, or it would undoubtedly have turned up on bootlegs. The known lyrics above are drawn from Andrew King's recollection.
