Or probably what most people would even call simple. Garcia had been listening to recordings of Eastern European folk songs, he later told Blair Jackson. Of course it became so transmogrified when Bob and Phil added their harmony parts to it that it really was no longer the part of the song that was special for me. That was that melodic kicker originally though. Jerry Garcia Jerry Garcia. Bob Weir Bob Weir. Bill Kreutzmann Bill Kreutzmann. Phil Lesh Phil Lesh. Mickey Hart Mickey Hart.
Grateful Dead Lyrics. Well the first days are the hardest days, don't you worry any more, 'Cause when life looks like Easy Street, there is danger at your door. Think this through with me, let me know your mind, Wo, oh, what I want to know, is are you kind? It's a buck dancer's choice my friend; better take my advice. You know all the rules by now and the fire from the ice. Will you come with me? Won't you come with me?
