Lyrics written in the Esso Motor Hotel, finished 14 January 1968. "Catherina" could refer to a girl Jimi met in Gothenburg.

‘The day after the incident, he told
Aftonbladet he has a girlfriend in Gothenburg - tall with blond hair. “The first real girl I’ve met in my whole life.” She lives in Gothenburg, but he’s extremely meticulous about not mentioning her name.’ (Aftonbladet, 17? January 1968)
