stella blue
words by robert hunter
music by jerry garcia

All the years combine
they melt into a dream
A broken angel sings
from a guitar
In the end there`s just a song
comes crying like the wind
through all broken dreams
and vanished years
Stella Blue
When all the cards are down
there`s nothing left to see
There`s just the pavement left
and broken dreams
In the end there`s still that song
comes crying like the wind
down every lonly street
that`s ever been
Stella Blue
I`ve stayed in every blue-light cheap hotel
Can`t win for tryin'
Dust off those rusty strings just
one more time
Gonna make ' em shine
It all rolls into one
and nothing comes for free
There`s nothing you can hold
for very long
And when you hear that song
come crying like the wind
it seems like all this life
was just a dream
Stella Blue

first performance:June 17,1972, at the hollywood bowl
in los angeles. (this was pigpen`s last show with the band

liver failure om march 8, 1973.)it remained a staple of
the live repertoire thereafter.

Quote from the book "A Long Strange Trip"

"The crowd was not interested in gurus or politicians, and neither Leary nor Rubin got much attention. As he went on to speak, Rubin told Rifkin, "now, pay attention. What I'm going to say is very important." Garcia found his message at best laughable and at worst fascistic. "Like, all that campus confusion seemed laughable too. Why enter this closed society and make an effort to liberalize it when that's never been its function? Why not just leave it and go somewhere else?" When Rubin began a standard antiwar harangue, "The words didn't matter. It was that angry tone. It scared me, it made me sick to my stomach."

"In Portland, Weir reviewed what he had written about meeting Neal:

Escaping through the lily fields
I came across an empty space
It trembled and exploded
Left a bus stop in its place
The bus came by and I got on
that's when it all began
There was cowboy Neal at the wheel
of the bus to never-ever land
Comin', comin', comin' around
Comin' around in a circle

That works, he thought to himself as he finally went off to sleep. A couple of thousand miles south, Neal Cassady lay dying of exposure on railroad tracks near San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Found and brought to the hospital, he died later that day, February 4, 1968."
