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."

Wedding Vows - Thanks

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.

wedding words

Hi Paul

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

Good Call

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'm looking for some 'Grateful Vows'

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,

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.
