For All the Grateful Dead Fans
    #1044701 - 11/11/02 10:34 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Well I recently broke up with my girlfriend who I love very much. Instead of complaining about how alone and depressed I am I decided to post lyrics to two Grateful Dead songs that express how I feel. Fans of the band might enjoy reading these:

It's All Over Now, Baby Blue

You must leave, now take what you need you think will last
Whatever you wish to keep, you better grab it fast.
Yonder stands your orphan with his gun;
Crying like a fire in the sun.
Look out; all those saints are coming through
And it's all over now, Baby Blue.

The highway is for gamblers, you better use your sense.
Take what you have gathered from coincidence.
The empty handed painter from your streets
Is drawing crazy patterns on your sheets.
The sky too is falling over you,
And it's all over now, Baby Blue.

All your seasick sailors, they are rowing home
Your empty-handed army is all going home.
Your lover who has just walked out your door
Has taken all his blankets from your floor.
The carpet too is moving under you,
And it's all over now, Baby Blue.

Leave your stepping stones behind, there's something calls for you
Forget about the dead you've left, they will not follow you
The vagabond who's rapping at your door
Is standing in the clothes that you once wore.
Strike another match go start anew,
And it's all over now, Baby Blue.


Looks Like Rain

I woke today, felt your side of the bed;
The covers were still warm where you?d been layin'.
You were gone, oh gone, my heart was filled with dread;
You might not be sleeping here again.
But it's alright cause I love you,
And that's not going to change.
Run me around and make me hurt again and again.
But I'll still sing you love songs,
Written in the letters of your name.
And brave the storm to come,
For it surely looks like rain

Did you ever waken to the sound of street cats making love?
And guess from the cries you were listening to a fight.
Well you know, oh-oh , hate?s just the last thing they're thinking of.
They're only tryin' to make it through the night.

I only want to hold you, I don't want to tie you down
Or fence you in the lines I might've drawn.
It's just that I, oh I, have gotten used to havin' you around.
The landscape would be empty, if you were gone;
But it's alright cause I love you,
And that's not going to change.
Run me around and make me hurt again and again.
But I'll still sing you love songs,
Written in the letter of your name.
And brave the storm to come,
For it surely looks like rain.

I like those lyrics. I heard a cover of the first one --ya know I thought it was a Dylan tune --by Brian Ferry. Good luck with your new status.

Yeah you're right. "It's All Over Now Baby Blue" is a Dylan tune. But I've only heard the Dead's version of it.

Sorry for your recent breakup, another cover that the Dead did better than Dylan.

Tangled Up In Blue

Early one mornin' the sun was shinin', I was layin' in bed
Wond'rin if she'd changed at all if her hair was still red
Her folks they said our lives together sure was gonna be rough
They never did like Mama's homemade dress
Papa's bankbook wasn't big enough
And I was standin' on the side of the road rain fallin' on my shoes
Heading out for the East Coast
Lord knows I've paid some dues gettin' through tangled up in blue

She was married when we first met soon to be divorced
I helped her out of a jam, I guess, but I used a little too much force
We drove that car as far as we could abandoned it out West
Split up on a dark sad night both agreeing it was best
She turned around to look at me as I was walkin' away
I heard her say over my shoulder,
We'll meet again someday on the avenue, tangled up in blue

I had a job in the great north woods working as a cook for a spell
But I never did like it all that much and one day the ax just fell
So I drifted down to New Orleans where I happened to be employed
Workin' for a while on a fishin' boat right outside of Delacroix
But all the while I was alone the past was close behind
I seen a lot of women, but she never escaped my mind,
And I just grew tangled up in blue

She was workin' in a topless place and I stopped in for a beer
I just kept lookin' at the side of her face in the spotlight so clear
And later on as the crowd thinned out I's just about to do the same
She was standing there in back of my chair
Said to me, "Don't you know my name?"
I muttered somethin' under my breath
She studied the lines on my face, I must admit I felt a little uneasy
When she bent down to tie the laces of my shoe, tangled up in blue

She lit a burner on the stove and offered me a pipe
I thought you'd never say hello, she said
You look like the silent type.
Then she opened up a book of poems and handed it to me
Written by an Italian poet from the thirteenth century
And every one of them words rang true and glowed like burnin' coal
Pourin' off of every page like it was written in my soul from me to you
Tangled up in blue

I lived with them on Montague Street in a basement down the stairs
There was music in the cafes at night and revolution in the air
Then he started into dealing with slaves and something inside him died
She had to sell everything she owned and froze up inside
And when finally the bottom fell out I became withdrawn
The only thing I knew how to do was to keep on keepin' on
Like a bird that flew, tangled up in blue

All the people we used to know they're an illusion to me now
Some are mathematicians some are carpenter's wives
Don't know how it all got started
I don't know what they're doin' with their lives
But me, I'm still on the road headin' for another joint
We always did feel the same we just saw it from another point of view
Tangled up in blue
