Tuesday Afternoon Lyrics

Artist: The Moody Blues

Tuesday Afternoon
Moody Blues

Tuesday afternoon,
I'm just beginning to see, now I'm on my way
It doesn't matter to me, chasing the clouds away.

Something, calls to me,
The trees are drawing me near, I've got to find out why?
Those gentle voices I hear, explain it all with a sigh.

I'm looking at myself reflections of my mind,
It's just the kind of day to leave myself behind.
So gently swaying through the fairyland of love,
If you'll just come with me you'll see the beauty of

Tuesday afternoon, Tuesday afternoon.

Tuesday, afternoon,
I'm just beginning to see, now I'm on my way.
It doesn't matter to me, chasing the clouds away.
Something, calls to me,
The trees are drawing me near, I've got to find out why?
Those gentle voices I hear, explain it all with a sigh.

From: Todd & Sharon Peach>

Many a day in the 70's I spent listening to this song in the park as my 8 track echoed in the valley

i have loved the Moody Blues since i was a young teenager ...I have such wonderful recollections of their music too and the amazingly
spiritual & soothing effect that band has had on me , for the majority of my life...

I had the honor of meeting Mr. Justin Hayward personally for just a brief moment at his hotel after they played at the Oakland Colliseum in 1971 ...He was so extremely gracious & so humble...


i met Mr. Michael Pinder
& His wife, years later in 1998 for photos & autographs at a book store announcing his more recent endeavors ...

What a blessing they all are !!!
by Kristen Laurel on 6/29/2008 1:56pm
this song takes me back to... well, before I was born.
by kartaginer on 8/18/2008 5:54am
I love this song
it's megicall
by JC on 9/11/2008 2:54am
This is a great song, since I noticed it I cannot stop playing it and singing it. I agree is magical.
by Kate on 9/23/2008 2:03pm
There's a big gap in my music experience---when me children were babies didn't listen, so missed Moody, Janis & a whole lot more. I'm finding them now---fantastic hidden treasures!
by Eva on 10/8/2008 12:32pm
I was 10 when I first heard them in 1968. Faraway music that drew me in and inspired me to paint, dream, go beyond the here and now. Their music and lyrics never age.
Just as beautiful today as in days of yore...:)
by janet on 11/29/2008 9:24pm
THIS song has very special meaning to me. It chronicles my journey on the path. My path. Each time I listen to it I appreciate those lyrics even more!
by Greg on 1/28/2009 3:25pm
Vanessa... smoke another one
by Shelly on 3/11/2009 10:43pm
One of the great songs
by Gregs gay lover on 3/19/2009 11:03am
Hey Greg, come back to bed.
by Sherry on 3/21/2009 1:44am
I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who thinks that there i something magical and spiritual about this song. The Moody Blues music in general, but especially this song. And now that it's on that new TV commercial, it's drawing in a lot more new people, curious about this ethereal melody...
by Marcelo on 3/22/2009 8:26am
just beautiful..i love this song
by Laina on 3/26/2009 5:26am
The Moody Blues are the soundtrack to my life, and many, many more lives..
by LuAnne on 3/26/2009 10:28am
this song brings back such wonderful memories.
by jc47 on 3/26/2009 11:25pm
what a beautifull song I play it on my guitar and sing my heart out I feel blessed that I can play it and play it well
by Bea on 3/28/2009 6:07pm
I loved this song back then. Now I love it even more. Yes, it is magical, soothing, uplifting.....
by Lynn/Long Distance Traveller on 3/29/2009 4:54pm
Can't wait for next Tuesday afternoon...
by Steve on 3/29/2009 8:38pm
Great song and a great melody but the cynic in me thinks it's about a hallucinogenic experience.
by Claude on 4/6/2009 1:23am
What a classic timeless song!
by Adrienne on 4/6/2009 3:53pm
I love this song. Awe-inspiring and amazing.
by Sue on 4/7/2009 12:03am
Love that song!! I don't want to believe it's about drugs, Steve!! I prefer to think of it as a rather spiritual introspection!! It is for me, anyway.
by BT on 4/15/2009 8:01pm
This song along with Nights in White Satin are just so haunting... they send rushes up my spine but the memories of a boyfriend 30 years ago!
by Rod on 4/28/2009 7:34pm
My Kids Will Never Understand How We Were So Very Very Lucky To Have Grown Up In Those Times!
by Laurel on 5/13/2009 1:48pm
I LOVE this song on the commercial on tv....I grew up listening to the Moody Blues and it brought it all back. It's a "feel good" song
by Steve f on 5/20/2009 9:59pm
Hey, REAL LSD was spiritual. Man, there was so much THC,LSD,psilocybin and mescaline around when that song came out I'll always believe there was a hallucinogenic element involved. Its a beautiful song regardless. But fire-breathing seahorses and kalidescopic images in the tv ad, priceless.
by Robert on 5/22/2009 10:23am
Man, this was one of my favorite Vietnam songs. Takes me back to the jungle, thoughts of hunting VC & Charlie.... you guys missed one hell of a ride.....
by A Classic Rocker on 6/2/2009 3:29pm
I wish kids today could experience only 1/2 of the good music I grew up on. Nothing like the 60's & 70's. I love this song...oh how it takes me back!!!
by Justasinger Ina Rockinrollband on 6/5/2009 6:25pm
Breathe deep the gathering gloom
.... full our room
Cold-hearted all, fills the night
Let you decide which is right
and which is an illusion.

Night's in white Satin
never reaching the end
Letters I've written
never meaning to send...
by sam on 6/14/2009 9:24pm
Steve F - you couldn't be more right.
by Ava on 6/15/2009 7:19pm
Me and my mom were trying to find something out about this song.So I sugested to look it up so I presed Tuesday Afternoon and I found it on google .
by Grody on 6/20/2009 10:35pm
If this song is about drugs wednesday afternoon probably sucked.
by jim on 6/25/2009 3:54pm
When I hear this song I can not help but feel the song reflects that often our behavior and thoughts are influenced by forces of which we are aware but unable to comprehend.
by Henry 6/29/2009 on 6/29/2009 10:43pm
This is a great song I can't get it out of my mind. It brings me back
in time.
by Realist on 7/2/2009 11:02am
It isn't magic. Its the Mellowtron.
by Hank on 7/4/2009 1:25pm
They don,t make em like this anymore, they don,t have the right.
by alex on 7/7/2009 12:59pm
I love the moody blues too I think there cool.
by Shane on 7/8/2009 1:27pm
This song makes me wanna trip face and play guitar..
by mike on 7/12/2009 1:37pm
wow...this song sucks lol. sorry. and its getting on my nerves on this new commercial. its draws this lonely, dreary, rainy day kind of feel out of me. if it wasnt for that horrible sounding instrument creating that high pitched whine, id be able to fall asleep to this is 5 seconds but i cant even do that...
by XPATR8 on 7/17/2009 2:44pm
Hey Mike,
Ya just don't get it, do ya?
by Daz on 8/4/2009 2:12pm
Grew up on MBs. My Dad loved their music and I have so many awesome memories captured while listening to them. Now, my kids are hearing their music and making memories of their own. Awesome!
by Judee on 8/8/2009 5:49pm
I loved this song when I was young, my mother died last November on a tuesday afternoon and when I heard it again on the commercial I thought of her, the words are so fitting. I now love it again, for a different reason.
by Donna on 8/31/2009 12:19pm
Got the dvd Hall Of Fame Live From the Royal Albert Hall back in April and have listened to it at least 300 times. Some days I just play it over and over 'cause the music simply soothes my nerves. My 11 year old grandaughter is now a totally Moody fan and knows which song I'm just whistling. Love 'em.
by Luke on 9/9/2009 8:12pm
Something very special about the song.
by Karl on 9/15/2009 12:11am
It's just a classy song.

It's rare these days to find poetry in popular music, that is.
by kdizzle on 9/15/2009 3:32pm
i want to know the meaning of this song
by SAINT JASON on 10/8/2009 8:16pm
i grew up in the 70-s,and became obsessed w/ the moody blues,but especially this song it made me think even, about a girl i was really in love with. powerful is^nt it ?
by James Friesen on 10/19/2009 2:49am
Ineffable...beggars description! Haunting, beautiful lyrics and instrumental,... classical. Those of us who experienced this era are at a loss to do justice to express. No doubt nuances for each of us, according to our individual experiences/circumstances at the time. As I say to my kids; "In the top ten songs of all time", hands down. Top five, even? For sure!
by Dorrie on 11/3/2009 8:32pm
Some songs are simply timeless - this one is a great example. And a quick question for "Mike on 7/12/2009 1:37pm" - if you thought the song sucked, why are you looking up the lyrics? Hmm?
by Tom C on 11/3/2009 9:53pm
Back when most of the sounds were made by people playing something... I echo the sentiments of most of previous posts. Words don't do MBs justice. Another of the underrated bands of the past. The songs which received airplay were only the tip of the iceberg. Every album was a masterpiece... cover to cover. Like the Beatles we couldn't wait for the next one!
by jacob on 1/5/2010 2:44am
This is one of the most influencial songs of the time on me hauntingly beautiful stirring and profound - unique poetry, energy that transcends generations - its fills a gap in our lives that has shown us materialism and war and and narsissm can never. The Spirit Rises as the body falls Keep Rising and Believing in the Dream you dreamt as children and Never Surrender except to Love
by hector on 4/13/2010 2:28pm
this song just moved me but another classical song that we can't just leave behind is "the whistler from "Jethro Tull"
I'm inviting you to check it out you will surely like it as much as i do!
by Anna on 5/15/2010 6:26pm
I have a good memories with this song.... enjoy....
by jeff on 6/16/2010 3:29pm
The first time I had heart surgery the doctor asked me what I wanted him to put in the cassette player. He chose the Moodys. Crazy memory.
by martin from johannesburg on 7/17/2010 8:40pm
The best way to listen to this song is with your soul. all the greatest memories of the people that have passed on, this song brings them back its like they never left you.
by Oldtimerockinroller on 8/3/2010 12:09pm
The Moodys were special in the 60's just as they are today. If you like listening to the recording try hearing it in concert.
by terri on 8/6/2010 5:58pm
I first heard this song on the radio, on a Tuesday afternoon. The song reached to the bottom of my heart and soul as I awaited the Love of my life to come home. With tears streaming down my eyes I coined it "Our Song". It too was the soundtracks of our lives. Now that he is on the other side, I listen to this song to renew the many, many awesome memories I will keep forever.

Grew up with this song as a teenager. Now, I hear it in the morning in my head when I awake. I guess it is calling me back to myself when I was true to who I am.
by Shirl on 12/20/2010 12:19pm
My daughter and her longtime boyfriend got married on A Tuesday Afternoon this past September. This has always been one of my favorite songs since it first came out. (I'm old) Now it has a whole new very romantic meaning. Beautiful!
by Tuesday on 1/15/2011 6:29pm
I grew up listening to this and many other classic rock bands, compliments of my dad. I'm 21 now and I still love the old stuff far more than the new. I was named after this, Ruby Tuesday, and Tuesday's gone.
by maicah on 1/24/2011 5:55am

by phyllis tomiuck on 1/29/2011 7:55am
my husband loves this group has seen them in conert a couple of times. they are an older group but truly timeless. being rediscovered by the new generation.
by Dr.Doom on 2/12/2011 3:49pm
I grew up as a teenager in the 60's with The MB's. The sound of their music is timeless and it takes me where I'd like to be again. It's always memories we have about where we were, who we were with and what we did.
by Tims Dad on 3/22/2011 4:58pm
Nobody does a trip like the MBs
by Kevan on 4/30/2011 12:40pm
by DALE B on 5/14/2011 10:11am
I've been playing the guitar most of my life, love all the old stuff. i knew how to play Tuesday Afternoon but I'm tone deaf and never knew all the words. Thanks to this site now I do. The MB's never get old to me, The gentle voices I here explain it all with a sigh.
by Whitey Vitale on 5/18/2011 5:03pm
My Father lost a 14 yr battle w/cancer on a Tuesday afternoon....Friends came to console me & we went for a ride in the country....the Moody Blues song came on the radio & it was as if my father was talking to me thru the song...telling me of how heaven was calling him home....I think of my dad every time I hear this song!
by Justin Patterson on 6/12/2011 1:45am
i'd love to hear Justin Bieber try (and Fail to) sing this song. the music of today is total crap. I missed my true timeline by fouty years. oh well we still have recording of these songs.
by Ben Colli on 6/16/2011 10:40am
I am a huge Moody blues fan, they just have the right touch on their songs and Tuesday afternoon is no different.
by Moody & Blue on 7/25/2011 3:26pm
I'm writing this on a Monday afternoon...I hate Monday afternoons. Tuesday afternoons are a wee bit better, but give me a Friday afternoon every time :-)
by Kelly Clark on 10/7/2011 6:10pm
Wow both my mom and her best friend passed away on a Tuesday. Her best friend died many years ago, this was his favorite song. It was incredibly perfect that she died one day after he did (years later) but also on a Tuesday. Boy did I cry listening to this again. Thank you for having the lyrics here. Would love to see MB become popular again.
by Jane Orlando on 10/13/2011 9:43pm
I was 20 years old when this song first came out. I loved it then, and I'm 62 years old now, and I still love it. Thanks for a great song!
by Vito Belcastro on 10/26/2012 9:28pm
How is it that after all these years, the Moody Blues are not in the Hall of Fame? Who are the idiots on the selection committee?
by Tom Shea on 12/18/2012 3:38pm
Hey Vito, do they need the be in the established Hall of Fame, they'll be in Hall of Fame in our hearts!
by Lily Perry on 6/3/2013 4:53pm
I spent many afternoons stoned listening to the Moody Blues, this one was always my favorite!
by andrew black on 7/23/2013 7:37pm
can anyone send me the song - i love it too and i live in chian but cant doenload it - i would be really grateful -
by Moody Blues Lover on 2/13/2014 1:26pm
I was listening to this song on earbuds and I jumped when his voice sang into my left ear! But I agree. I feel this song is magical.... I just can't stop listening to it!...just very beautiful and spiritual.
by "Those Gentle Voices" on 2/13/2014 1:47pm
Erm-- this is kind of weird, but this song reminds me of Harry Potter. But I guess it's not THAT weird because this song is magical, and I suppose this is what makes me connect it to Harry Potter. And I guess if everyone agrees this is a magical song, I won't be counted as odd.
by Lord Voldemort on 2/13/2014 2:05pm
You Mudbloods and Muggles better watch for yourselves. It might just be your last Tuesday afternoon. Oh, and by the way, please call me Lord Voldemort, even if Albus Dumbldore does not. (Heh, the Muggle-lover!) Well, actually, call me the Dark Lord instead. Or, if you fear me, just call me You-Know-Who or He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. And if you see Harry Potter anywhere.... I would not mind and helping hand.... Heh. Now, back to my Horcruxes-- I mean-- er-- my work, I mean. (That was close....)
by Voldemort on 2/13/2014 3:38pm
This is the only thing I, Lord Voldemort, cares for in life except my rise to power. And getting Harry Potter. And getting Albus Dumbledore. But other than those four things, the Dark Lord cares for nothing and nobody. Now, I shall take my time to do more important things, like making Horcr-- I mean, doing stuff.

**Only people who have read all Harry Potter novels will understand the last part**
by Cristina on 2/13/2014 6:15pm
This song just blows me away. It's hard to explain the feeling you get by it.... It seems to cast a spell on you in a mystical sort of way.... Personally, my favorite part is when it says, "So gently swaying through the fairyland of love." That part just seems to get to me, not in a bad way though. This song is a masterpiece that deserves to be in the hall of fame. Beautiful song. Just amazing. The Moody Blues deserve a pat on the back for this wonderful song.
by Mad-Eye Moody on 2/18/2014 1:58pm
Nice song we got here.... Yes.... Very nice.... CONSTANT VIGILANCE!
by Moody Me on 2/18/2014 2:05pm
Miss the old stuff. Music these days is horrible. Really miss the old stuff! Music these days is absolutely horrible! It's only music these days, but I hate it, I hate it, yes I do!
by gina girl on 2/26/2014 12:19pm
Always loved this song..still takes me back to a better time.
by dennis long on 3/14/2016 10:15pm
