Good ole Grateful Dead
    #1649109 - 06/20/03 07:33 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

High Time

You told me goodbye
How was I to know
You didn?t mean goodbye
You meant please don?t let me go
I was having a high time
Living the good life
Well I know

The wheels are muddy
Got a ton of hay
Now listen here baby
?Cause I mean what I say
I?m having a high time
Living the good life
Well I know

I was losing time, I had nothing to do
No-one to fight, I came to you
Wheels broke down, leader won?t draw
The line is busted, the last one I saw


Tomorrow comes trouble
Tomorrow comes pain
Now don?t think too hard, baby
?Cause you know what I?m saying
I could show you a high time
Living the good life
Don?t be that way

Nothing?s for certain
It could always go wrong
Come in when it?s raining
Go on out when it?s gone
We could have us a high time
Living the good life
Well I know


Hunter/Garcia

Dire Wolf

In the timbers of Fennario
the wolves are running round
The winter was so hard and cold
froze ten feet neath the ground

Don?t murder me
I beg of you don?t murder me
Please
don?t murder me

I sat down to my supper
T?was a bottle of red whiskey
I said my prayers and went to bed
That?s the last they saw of me

Don?t murder me
I beg of you don?t murder me
Please
don?t murder me

When I awoke, the Dire Wolf
Six hundred pounds of sin
Was grinnin at my window
All I said was "come on in"

Don?t murder me
I beg of you don?t murder me
Please
don?t murder me

The wolf came in, I got my cards
We sat down for a game
I cut my deck to the Queen of Spades
but the cards were all the same


Don?t murder me
I beg of you don?t murder me
Please
don?t murder me

In the backwash of Fennario
The black and bloody mire
The Dire Wolf collects his due
while the boys sing round the fire

Don?t murder me
I beg of you don?t murder me
Please
don?t murder me


Hunter/Garcia

Black Peter

All of my friends come to see me last night
I was laying in my bed and dying
Annie Beauneu from Saint Angel
say "the weather down here so fine"

Just then the wind
came squalling through the door
but who can
the weather command?
Just want to have
a little peace to die
and a friend or two
I love at hand

Fever roll up to a hundred and five
Roll on up
gonna roll back down
One more day
I find myself alive
tomorrow
maybe go
beneath the ground

See here how everything
lead up to this day
and it?s just like
any other day
that?s ever been
Sun goin up
and then the
sun it goin down
Shine through my window and
my friends they come around
come around
come around


People may know but
the people don?t care
that a man could be
as poor as me...
"Take a look at poor Peter
he?s lyin in pain
now let?s go run
and see"

Run and see
hey, hey,
run and see


Hunter/Garcia

I love the words to this song:

I just listened to an acoustic version Garcia & Kahn from Oregon State Prison 5-5-85.

Rubin and Cherise

Cherise was brushing her long hair gently down
It was the afternoon of carnival as she brushes it gently down
Rubin was strumming his painted mandolin
It was inlaid with a pretty face in jade played in the carnival parade

Cherise was dressing as Pirouette in white
When a fatal vision gripped her tight Cherise beware tonight
Rubin, Rubin tell me truly true
I feel afraid and I don't know why I do, Is there another girl for you?

If you could see my heart you would know it's true
There's none Cherise, except for you, except for you
I'd swear to it on my very soul, If I lie, say I fall down cold

When Rubin played on his painted mandolin
The breeze would pause to listen in before going on its way again
Masquerade began when nightfall finally woke
Like waves against the bandstand, dancers broke to the painted mandolin

Looking out to the crowd who is standing there
Sweet Ruby Claire at Rubin stared, at Rubin stared
She was dressed as Pirouette in red
And her hair hung gently down

The crowd pressed round, Ruby stood as though alone
Rubin's song took on a different tone and he played it just for her
The song he played was the carnival parade
Each note cut a thread of Cherise's fate it cut through like a blade

Rubin was playing his painted mandolin
When Ruby froze and turned to stone for the strings played all alone
The voice of Cherise from the face of the mandolin
Singing Rubin, Rubin tell me true for I have no one but you

If you could see my heart you would know it true
There's none Cherise, except for you, except for you
I'd swear to it on my very soul, If I lie, say I fall down cold

The truth of love an unsung song must tell
The course of love must follow blind without a look behind
Rubin walked the streets of New Orleans till dawn
Cherise so lightly in his arms and her hair hung gently down

The bus came by and I got on that's when it all began!

Isn't that the best. I like Jerry's comment  before the song "all right you want one more, this next songs got a lot of words so I might not remember them all" .Then he does it perfectly
That tape is pure love :heart:

Yea... that's classic but your right he nails every word! I was thinking how sad it is that there both gone.
