The Grateful Dead played a few times in the late 1960s and early 1970s. This is the Dead version from 15 May 1970.

Lyrics

There's a long line of mourners, winding down through our city
Their fancy cars are such a sight to see
They must be your rich friends that knew you in the city
And now they've finally brought you back home to me

The papers told of how you lost your life
Of the party and the fatal crash that night
The race out on the highway and the turn nobody's seen
Now you're riding in that long black limousine

You said the day you left me that you would be returning
In a fancy car, for all the town to see
Well now you've finally come back, yes you've finally got your dream
Now you're riding in that long black limousine

The papers told of how you lost your life
Of the party and the fatal crash that night
The race out on the highway and the turn nobody's seen
Now you're riding in that long black limousine
Now you're
