well heres one that i have heard a few times lately and i love it.....

DUPREE`S DIAMOND BLUES
words by robert hunter
music by jerry garcia

when i was just a little young boy,
papa said "son, you`ll never get far,
i`ll tell you the reason if you want to know,
`cause, child of mine, there isn`t really very far to go"

well, baby, baby wants a gold diamond ring
wants it more than most any old thing
well when i get those jelly roll blues
why, i`d go and get anything in this world for you.

down to the jewelry store packing a gun,
says, "wrap it up. i think i`ll take this one."
"a thousand dollars, please," the jewelry man said
dupree, he said," i`ll pay this one off to you in lead."
chorus:
well, you know, son, you just can`t figure,
first thing you know you`re going to pull that trigger
and its no wonder your reason goes bad----
jelly roll will drive you stone mad.
judge said, "son, this gonna cost you some time"
dupree said, "judge,you know that crossed my mind."
judge said, "fact, it`s gonna cost you your life"
dupree said, "judge, you know that seems to
me to be about right."




well, baby, baby`s gonna lose her sweet man
dupree come out with a losing hand
baby`s gonna weep it up for a while
then go on out
and find another sweet man`s
gonna treat her with style.

judge said, "son, i know your baby well
but thats a secret i can`t never tell."
dupree said, "judge, well it`s well understood,
and you got to admit that that sweet, sweet jelly`s
so good."
chorus:

same old story and i know it`s been told,
some like jelly-jelly---some like gold
many a man`s done a terrible thing
just to get baby that shiny diamond ring.

I'm posting this one!!!!!

Alabama Getaway
As performed by the Grateful Dead

32 teeth in a jawbone, Alabama trying for none,
Before I have to hit him, I hope he's got the sense to run.
Reason the poor girls love him, promise them everything,
Why they all believe him? He wears a big diamond ring.

Alabama getaway, getaway. Alabama getaway, getaway,
Only way to please me, ya just gotta leave and walk away.

Major Domo Billy Bojangles, sit down and have a drink with me,
"What's this about Alabama? It keeps a coming back to me.
Heard your plea in the courthouse, Witness box began to rock and rise,
49 sister states all had Alabama in there eyes.

Alabama getaway, getaway. Alabama getaway, getaway,
Only way to please me, ya just gotta leave and walk away.

Major said why don't we give him rope enough to hang himself?
No need to worry the jury, this kind takes care of themselves.
23rd psalm Major Domo, reserve me a table for three,
Down in the valley of the shadow, just you, Alabama, and me.

Alabama getaway, getaway. Alabama getaway, getaway,
Only way to please me, ya just gotta leave and walk away.

Rosemary lyrics

Boots were of leather, a breath of cologne
the mirror was a window she sat by alone.
All around the garden grew scarlet and purple and crimson and blue.
She came dead and she went, and at last went away, the garden was sealed when the
flowers decayed.
On the wall of the garden a legend did say, no one may come here since no one may
stay.

Whoops! Must have missed yours.

As far as a Deadhead theme, I don't see a ton of people here, are you sure there would be enough interested?

I have a nephew who's a Dead Head!! After he graduated from high school he followed them for a year before starting to college. Went all over the place. Right after that Jerry Garcia died. He was so glad he had done that when he did. And I'm glad he was able to do that because after he finished college and got a good job we found out he has M.S. His eyes just gleam when he talks about " the year he didn't go to school". LOL Said that was the best year of his life!!

Just got the "Fillmore West 1969" three cd set in the mail today!

Here's an obscure and not to significant quote mentioned in the booklet:
.....,Garcia told an interviewer that on Live/Dead, "We were after a certain sequence,
a serious, long composition, musically, and then a recording of it."

The booklet also mentions something I found interesting, "Two years after they'd begun as a cover/blues band, the Dead began to become The Dead in September 1967, when Garcia began playing a figure that went from A major 7th to E 9th." Hunter was called up from New Mexico just in time to here them working on what he called "that waah, amorphous thing", soon to be known as "Dark Star".
