Reuben and Cerise
    #2521866 - 04/03/04 05:12 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Cerise was brushing her long hair gently down
It was the afternoon of carnival
as she brushes it gently down

Reuben was strumming the painted mandolin
It was inlaid with a pretty face in jade
Played the Carnival Parade

Cerise was dressing as Pirouette in white
when a fatal vision gripped her tight
Cerise beware tonight

Reuben, Reuben 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 in my heart
you would know it's true
there is none Cerise except for you
except for you
I swear to it on my very soul
If I lie may I fall down cold

When Reuben played the painted mandolin
the breeze would stop to listen in
before going its way again

Masquerade began when nightfall finally woke
Like waves against the bandstand dancers broke
to the painted mandolin

Looking out on the crowd, who is standing there?
Sweet Ruby Claire at Reuben stared
At Reuben stared
She was dressed as Pirouette in red
and her hair hung gently down

The crowd pressed round
Ruby stood as though alone
Reuben'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 Cerise's fate
It cut through like a blade

Reuben was playing the painted mandolin
When Ruby froze and turned to stone
for the strings played all alone

The voice of Cerise from the face of the mandolin
singing: Reuben, Reuben tell me true
for I have no one but you
If you could see in my heart
you would know it's true
There is none Cerise, except for you -except for you

I swear to it on my very soul
If I lie, may 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 through the streets
of New Orleans 'till dawn,
Cerise so lightly in his arms
and her hair hung gently down


--------------------


Without love in the dream
It will never come true

That song gives me chills.  I like the emphasis on Cherise's hair.  Sometimes nothing can be more attractive and luring than a girl's long hair.  I especially like the last few lines:

Rubin walked through the streets
of New Orleans 'till dawn,
Cerise so lightly in his arms
and her hair hung gently down

I really like the 5-5-82 JGB band version from oregon state prison...it's just garcia and kahn. Garcia starts off by saying "this song's got a lot of words and i might not remember all of them."

OMG YESSSS!!!! that was the first recording I ever heard. I sat in my room and listened to it for a few days. If I send one of yous a blank tape could I get that show. Thats a special one to me. Havnt heard it in 4 years.

On a side note. I was at one of the chillest parties I have ever been to man such good people. And there was this beautiful woman there with long brown hair. She mentioned Rhubin & Cerise, I just cracked open a magic hat and inside the cap it said "be a traveler not a tourist" she is traveling and hiking the inca trail in Peru so I gave her the bottle cap. I already read it and I understood it. She asked if she could keep it and I was like its already yours.
To bad she had a man.
