Mission in the Rain

Mission In The Rain
Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jerry Garcia

I turn and walk away
Then I come round again
Looks as though tomorrow
I'll do pretty much the same

I must turn down your offer
But I'd like to ask a break
You know I'm ready to give anything
For anything I take

Chorus
Someone called my name you know I turned around to see
It was midnight in the mission and the bells were not for me
Come again
Walking along in the mission in the rain
Come again
Walking along in the mission in the rain

Ten years ago I walked this street, my dreams were riding tall
Tonight I would be thankful Lord, for any dreams at all
Some folks would be happy just to have one dream come true
But everything you gather is just more that you can lose

[chorus]

All the things I planned to do, I only did half way
Tomorrow will be Sunday, born of rainy Saturday
There's some satisfaction in the San Francisco rain
No matter what comes down, the mission always looks the same

[chorus]

Hey Pocky Way/ Women are Smarter

These two songs, on a good night really show how much Brent and Jerry had a major connection. Brent would just fuel Jerry's fire and vice verse. It gives me chills to see Jerry so happy and animated. By the way, I have friends that hate Brent's voice, but I feel he is incredibly under appreciated. I love his voice, it seems to melt beautifully with Bob and JG. Regardless of your views on the vocals, the only player as good or better, in my opinion would be Hornesby. JG and Brent would just start a back and forth that Bob seemed oblivious to. Watch the DVD's if you don't believe.
Peace,
Kenton

Uncle John & Uncle John's Band

I first heard the Dead in 1966. The times were and continued to be heartwrenching. When the Dead came out with this song I don't think I was the only one who felt like I was taken under the wing of the Dead. Jerry Garcia and family moved me then and does to this day. How very fortunate we are to know this man, this band, this music.

Excellent essay

Excellent essay by a very gifted poet. First time I have read it. Seems we are all riding on the big blue ball together in life and in spirit. The spirit can change the planet far beyond our steps on earth. In lifes like Jerry's, we all have and will continue to benefit from his spirit and his love. what a wonderful world.

In honor of this solemn and festive day...

I first direct those who haven't read it to Patti Smith's most fabulous Jerry Week essay. A true classic. Also in honor of the solemn and festive day, check out the Jerry birthday card made by our own Tom Mtttemeyer here.
