I have been listening to the Dead for years and I still can't figure out the lyrics to China Cat Sunflower. Does anybody know that they are?

China Cat Sunflower
(Garcia/Hunter)

Look for a while at the China Cat sunflower,
Proud walking jingle in the midnight sun.
Copperdome bodhi drip a silver kimono,
Like a crazy quilt stargown through a dream like wind.

Crazy cat peekin' through a lace bandanna,
Like a one-eyed Cheshire, like a diamond-eye jack.
A leaf of all colors plays a golden-string fiddle,
To a double-E waterfall over my back.

Comic book colors on a violin river Cryin' Leonardo,
Words from out a silk trombone.
I rang a silent bell, beneath a shower of pearls,
In the eagle-winged palace of the Queen Chinee.

Wooooo!!!!

That was quick service. Now all I gotta do is substitute the right words for the ones I've been singing for years. That's gonna be the hard part. What the heck is a "copperdome bodhi" anyway?
Somehow I think I was better off not knowing them. This only adds to the confusion.
thanks

No problem.

I always go to www.rukind.com to find out Dead lyrics. It's a cool sight especially if you play guitar.

That's cool you make your own music. I like rukind.com because it has chords for pretty much all of their songs as well as many Jerry Garcia Band songs. And I like that it has tablature for many of the main riffs and stuff. I just mess around on guitar now and then.

The next time you feel like it, go to www.beatlebangboy.com and check out some of my tunes. I assure you they are not your run of the mill songs and no two of them are the same.

I'm listening now, sounds good!  Do Da's is my favorite I think.  You're artist bio is impressive.  You sang with Cher, collaborated with Madonna and you're working on a cure for AIDS.  I'd like to shake your hand sir.  :tongue:

Yeah, they told me I could never make it as a spotlighted artist if I disn't have an impressive bio. So I gave them a impressive one. BTW, ANNA BANANA and OUT OF CONTROL are top 10 songs on Broadjam (that's where you are)

Good link notapillow.

Beatlebangboy I'll have to check out those two songs. And you're right, no songs so far sound remotely the same.

I love my bio, however it still won't get me spotlighted. I was actually in a band called Anal Mucus. We changed the name because, as you can tell from the name, we didn't get booked anywhere. I was listening to AOXOMOXA and realized that not only did I not know the lyrics for CCS, but What's Become Of The Baby is difficult to understand also, even though I don't want to sing along with it. I bet that site has the lyrics. Boy, you're never too old to learn something, are you? Here is a shameless plug for anyone who reads this, please listen to my tunes at: www.beatlebangboy.com and let me know what you think.
