The Other One
    #2217711 - 01/04/04 03:12 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Spanish lady come to me, she lays on me this rose
It rainbow spirals round and round, it trembles and explodes
It left a smoking crater of my mind I like to blow away
But the heat came round and busted me for smiling on a cloudy day

Coming, coming, coming around
Coming around, coming around, in a circle
Coming, coming, coming around
Coming around, coming around, in a circle

Escaping through the lily fields, I came across an empty space
It trembled and exploded, left a bus stop in its place
The bus came by and I got on, that's when it all began
There was Cowboy Neal at the wheel of the bus to never ever land

Coming, coming, coming around
Coming around, coming around, in a circle
Coming, coming, coming around
Coming around, coming around, in a circle
:sun: :sun: :sun: :sun: :sun: :sun:



bonus- interview with David Gans

Weir:  Interesting story with "The Other One." It was one of the first tunes I ever wrote. Actually, we came up with the "map," basically, for the song in a rehearsal somewhere, just kickin' stuff around. And then I took it and started shaping it up, and things like that. We went on a tour in the Pacific Northwest, and I was - you know, I was not done with it, I was wondering what the song was about - and then one night it sort of came to me. Basically, it's a little fantastic episode about my meeting Neal Cassady. I wrote the two verses - that's all there is to it, really, is two verses - and we played the gig that night and came home the next day, and when we came home we learned the news that Neal had died that night.
DG:  Wow.
Weir:  As legend has it, he died counting the railroad ties on the tracks -
Lesh:  From Dallas to Denver.
Weir:  Something like that. San Miguel de Allende [Mexico], I think, is where he was.
Lesh:  Okay.
Weir:  So I guess that was a little visitation, that's - not unlike Neal.
Lesh:  But if I remember correctly, as soon as you had the words, then we did the song.
Weir:  Yeah.
Lesh:  I mean, we did it that night
DG:  Wow.
Lesh:  It didn't require any rehearsal.
Weir:  Right.
Lesh:  [laugh ]
DG:  I remember a version from a little bit earlier, maybe late in '67. You had a different set of lyrics - a second verse that went, "The heat down at the jail/They weren't very smart," or something like that...
Weir:  Yeah, that was after my little -
Lesh:  Water balloon episode?
DG:  Oh, I wanna hear this!
Weir:  I got him good. I was on the third floor of our place in the Haight-Ashbury, and there was this cop who was illegally searching a car belonging to a friend of ours down on the street - the cops used to harass us every chance they got. They didn't care for the hippies back then. So I had a water balloon, and what was I gonna do with this water balloon, come on.
Lesh:  Just happened to have a water balloon, in his hand, ladies and gentlemen.
Weir:  And so I got him right square on the head -
Lesh:  A prettier shot you never saw.
Weir:  - and, uh, he couldn't tell where it was comin' from, but then I had to go and go downstairs and walk across the street and just grin at him -
Lesh, MM, DG:  [guffaw]
Weir:  - and sorta rub it in a little bit.
DG:  Smilin' on a cloudy day! I understand now.
MM:  It all becomes clear.
Weir:  At that point he decided to hell with due process of law, this kid's goin' to jail. He didn't have a thing on me . It never got to court, but on the other hand, I did get thrown in jail and beat up a little bit.
MM:  You just happened to have that water balloon handy, it was kind of just like standard procedure.
Weir:  He was the guy that was breakin' the law, too, the cop was.
MM:  That's, that's - I agree.
Weir:  I guess - what, what does a water balloon amount to, is that assault with a, uh...
DG:  Friendly weapon.
MM:  With a moist weapon.
Lesh, DG:  [laugh ] 
MM:  That goes under the water laws.
DG:  [laugh ]
MM:  And if it was tap water, that also...
Lesh:  Disrespect for an officer.
Weir:  Right.
DG:  That was enough in those days, as I recall.
