'Listen to the river sing sweet songs, to rock my soul'
Jimmy C. That is one beautiful Tune. Talkin bout Gooseflesh ( well G~Mom is the Mother Duck of the Flock :) Just thinking about it gets me ( Like sooo many of them do.... ) I could give ya'll my top 15 ~ cause I cant narrow it down any further than that , but Crazy Fingers is one of them....
I thought it was "fields of fragile thunder" ...........DOUH..........anyway......The life changing part........Midnight....on a carousel ride.....reaching for the gold ring.....down inside.
Never could reach it.......just slipped away......But I try
Gone are the days we stopped to decide........where we should go......we just ride.
i have to add that all the lyrics have really changed my life.
In fact, i am wriiting a novel based on the lyrics.
I am not going to unveal too much about the story, but my character dozes off into the Land of the Dead and the songs come to life...i have like 80% of the story line written out..still some bugs to work out......i have been Chipping off rocks for the grate highway!!!
lots of repeat motifs in it that u hear in the dead's music that are just freakin awesome!!
this is one amazing band that has given me the inspiration to do this....definately changed my life.
i really think Jerry will be proud of my story....
Peace..and God bless!
'm hairy high and low
Don't ask me why
It's not for lack of break
Like the Grateful Dead........ can u guess what they r?
Broken heart don't feel so bad
You ain't got half of what you thought you had
We can share the women, we can share the wine.
We can share what we got of yours 'cause we done shared all of mine.
First one makes me cry a bit and the second makes me laugh a lot.
OMG, there are SO many great lyrics!
There's an inescapable sage wisdom in the words "the shoe is on the hand it fits, there's really nothing much to it, whistle through your teeth and spit, cause it's alright, oh well a touch of grey kinda suits you anyway, that was all I had to say and it's alight." Having passed the half century mark in November of 2007, I can see Robert Hunters insightful wisdom - sometimes you just have to "whistle through your teeth and spit" simply because there's nothing else you can do but flail aimlessly at the wind about your personal situation. If I'd known the turns that life would take, I certainly would have drank more deeply of the vintage offered when I enjoyed the folly of youth with the careless disregard of someone who assumed things would never change.
chicken flesh and goosebumps, mom.
thanks for sharing that personal thing; and glad that those tears are now happy. I do not know if this was a recent passing or what since I've been away and trying to catch up a bit. but anyways, may the four winds blow Patty safely home; though something tells me, she IS safely home in your heart.
love and peace.
Was always one of mine and my sister Patty's favorites...we would dance and twirl and sing along. But after my sister passed away the song has a whole different meaning for me. Now my sister is the Eyes of the world looking down on me :) I cry now when I hear the song, but it's happy tears thinking about me and my sister :) Peace Patty I miss u
but you might listen to one song and be ABSOLUTELY sure that the words are written only for you.no doubt,you heard it.but than, years later you come upon the original lyrics and its about somebody else..hehe,yeah Ami Sometimes the songs....:-)(-:
