summer '71/ volume 1/#3 Big Railroad Blues...Saturday, Sunshine and Grateful Dead...a perfect day!
What a long strange trip it's been/ The Best of the Grateful Dead
The night is quiet, the streets are calm,
In this house my beloved once lived:
She has long since left the town,
But the house still stands, here in the same place.
A man stands there also and looks to the sky,
And wrings his hands overwhelmed by pain:
Upon seeing his face, I am terrified--
The moon shows me my own form!
O you Doppelgänger! you pale comrade!
Why do you ape the pain of my love
Which tormented me upon this spot
So many a night, so long ago?

You are dead, you are dead, my dearest,
And I breathe, you have left me,
You have left me forevermore,
Never to return, and I remain-
No, no, if my verses have any power,
I will go confidently to the deepest abysses,
And, having melted the heart of the king of shadows,
Will bring you back to me to see the stars again,
Or, if pitiless fate denies me this,
I will remain with you in the company of death.
Farewell earth, farewell sky, and sun, farewell.
