you might want to seek out a Hunter song called "When a Man Loves a Woman." Not the same as the Percy Sledge song, which is also awesome of course.
It is sweet and heartfelt. I think it's on "Liberty."
Thanks for the responses. I love "They Love Each Other" and it'll find a spot somewhere in the wedding/reception.
cosmicbadger: lol @ inlaws! I'm embarrassed to admit, I haven't listen to any Hunter songs that were not performed by the dead... :( But! I will remedy that w/in the day!
I'm actually looking for Wedding Vows... Words to be spoken by me, to her, during the ceremony. I can find pages upon pages upon pages of wedding vows on the net or via a book store. I was really hoping that somewhere in some time past Hunter had written vows.. Something a bit more special that held true to his style....
If anyone runs across something fitting please shot me a line.
Mean while I'm going to browse the forum and see who is who and which witch is which.
Hello Everyone !
I hope to meet up with some other fans & get to know you all.
I work at a casino where Phil & Bobby have both blessed us with their music.
Peace & Love , daisy
The one that gets me is Robert Hunter's 'Maybe she's a Bluebird' from Tales of the Great Rum Runners. Never recorded by the Dead (happy to be be corrected on that), but the sweetest words, if perhaps a little wistful for a wedding.
All of my fancy
All of my dreams come true
Just to be here with you
For the last dream
All of my life
Starts to make sense now
I think I see what it means
When I was a beggar
When I was a thief
When I was caught up
Was you that brought relief
Sometimes you amaze me
Sometimes make me crazy
Maybe you're a bluebird
That will never fly away
Not fly away, no
Not fly away
Maybe you're a bluebird
Who will never fly away
Of course the new in-laws may not be too impressed with the confession that you were a beggar and a thief!
best wishes to you both
I wanted that to be our wedding song, I was shot down though, Although when the wedding party was introduced, she had the dj play truckin. That was really cool.
I'd start there.
Hi all, I'm a newbie here but a long time Head. My Lady and I will be tying the knot in November and I am on the wedding vow hunt. I've been hoping to run across some lyrical lines from Robert Hunter that express my love in a Grateful Way.
If anyone has ran across something that may fit the bill, please guide me.
Many thanks in advance,
I found San Jose on the map of the united states. Which is right next to Palo Alto and Stanford California. Jerry Garcia's father name is Jose. I so happened to pick this name because a while back in the third grade - during recess - coming down the stairs I said,
"I am one of the strong ones" to one of three girls. Also my teacher has the same last
of one of the drummers.
Deadhead from Melbourne, Australia. I live, breathe and eat the Grateful Dead - but my favorite era would have to be '68-'69. Bobby is probably my fave, too... I'd love to catch him in concert someday. Always up for a chat, recommendations, or trading.
