Dead Set Album

Dead Set Album Picture Obtained Through Wikipedia Dead Set was released in 1981 on Aristais and is a live album. The live material was recorded between September and October of 1980 in a variety of concerts. Space was left out of most of the CDs so that the entire album could fit on one CD. When it was re released in 2004 as part of the Beyond Description boxset, "Space" was included. A bonus CD of live material was included in the 2006 re release. Both Reckoning and Dead Set come from the same recorded concerts and both of the albums were to be one double record set. The extended length of many of the Grateful Dead's electric tunes is what made the material two releases.

Feel Like A Stranger Lyrics

Feel Like A Stranger Lyrics

Inside you're burnin' I can see clear through Your eyes tell more than you mean them to Lit up and flashin' like the reds and blues Out there on the neon avenue Well I, feel like a stranger (feel like a stranger) Well the music's thunderin', restless and hot You keep firin' me glances across the room And I can't stop wonderin' just what you got Get the feeling I'm going to find out real soon But I feel like a stranger (feel like a stranger) So let's get on with the show, let's go Yes, and the wheels it's smokin 'round midnight You show me a...

Fire On The Mountain Lyrics

Fire On The Mountain Lyrics

Long distance runner, what you standin' there for? Get up, get out, get out of the door Your playin' cold music on the barroom floor Drowned in your laughter and dead to the core. There's a dragon with matches that's loose on the town Takes a whole pail of water just to cool him down. Fire! Fire on the mountain! Almost ablaze still you don't feel the heat It takes all you got just to stay on the beat. You say it's a livin', we all gotta eat But you're here alone, there's no one to compete. If Mercy's a bus'ness, I wish it for you More than...

Passenger Lyrics

Passenger Lyrics

Firefly, can you see me? Shine on, glowing, brief and brightly Could you imagine? One summer day, That same night be on your way Do you remember? Hearts were too cold Seasons have frozen us into our souls People were sayin' the whole world is burning Ashes have scattered too hard to turn Upside out or inside down False alarm, the only game in town No man's land, the only game in town Terrible, the only game in town Passenger, don't you hear me? Destination seen unclearly. What is a man deep down inside, What a raging beast with nothing to...

Samson and Delilah Lyrics

Samson and Delilah Lyrics

If I had my way, I would tear this old building down. Well Delilah was a woman, she was fine and fair, She had good looks, God knows, and coal black hair, Delilah she gained old Samson's mind. When first he saw this woman, you know he couldn't believe his mind. Delilah she climbed up on Samson's knee, Said tell me where your strength lies if you please. She spoke so kind and she talked so fair, Well Samson said, Delilah cut off my hair. You can shave my head, clean as my hand And my strength will become as natural as any old man. If I had my...

Franklin's Tower Lyrics

Franklin's Tower Lyrics

In another times forgotten space Your eyes looked from your mother's face Wallflower seed on the sand and stone May the four winds blow you safely home. Roll away the dew Roll away the dew Roll away the dew Roll away the dew I'll tell you where the four winds dwell In Franklin's tower there hangs a bell It can ring, turn night to day It can ring like fire when you loose your way. Roll away the dew Roll away the dew Roll away the dew Roll away the dew God save the child that rings that bell It may have one good ring, baby, you can't tell One...

Friend Of The Devil Lyrics

Friend Of The Devil Lyrics

I lit out from Reno, I was trailed by twenty hounds Didn't get to sleep last night 'till the morning came around. Set out runnin' but I take my time A friend of the devil is a friend of mine If I get home before daylight, I just might get some sleep tonight. Ran into the devil, babe, he loaned me twenty bills I spent the night in Utah in a cave up in the hills. Set out runnin' but I take my time, a friend of the devil is a friend of mine, If I get home before daylight, I just might get some sleep tonight. I ran down to the levee but the devil...

Candyman Lyrics

Come on all you pretty women, with your hair a hanging down, Open up your windows cuz the Candyman's in town. Come on boys and gamble, roll those laughing bones, Seven come eleven, boys I'll take your money home. Look out, look out the Candyman, Here he comes and he's gone again. Pretty lady ain't got no friend till, The Candyman comes around again, around again. I come from Memphis where I learned to talk the jive, When I get back to Memphis be one less man alive.

Greatest Story Ever Told Lyrics

Greatest Story Ever Told Lyrics

Moses come ridin' up on a quasar His spurs were jingling, the door was ajar His buckle was silver, his manner was bold And I asked him to come in out of the cold. His brain was boiling, his reason was spent His motto is nothing is borrowed, nothing is lent He ask me for mercy, I gave him a gun. He said these things just got to be done. Abraham and Isaac sitting on a fence You'd get right to work if you had any sense You know the one thing we need is a left-hand monkey wrench. Gideon come up with his eyes on the floor Said "You ain't got a...

Loser Lyrics

If I had a gun for every ace I have drawn, I could arm a town the size of Abilene Don't you push me baby, Cause I'm all alone and you know I'm only in it for the gold All that I am asking for is ten gold dollars And I could pay you back with one good hand You can look around about the wide world over And you'll never find another honest man. Last fair deal in the country, Sweet Suzie, last fair deal in the town Put your gold money where your love is baby, Before you let my deal go down Don't you push me baby, cause I'm all alone Well I know a...

I'm a little red rooster, too lazy to crow for days Just a little red rooster, too lazy to crow for days Keep everything in the barnyard people, upset in every way Dogs begin to bark now and the hounds begin to howl Dogs begin to bark now and the hounds begin to howl Watch out stray cat people the little red rooster is on the prowl If you see the little red rooster, won't you please drive him home If you see my little red rooster, won't you please drive him home Been no peace in the barnyard people, since the little red rooster's been gone [...

Deal Lyrics

Deal Lyrics

Since it costs a lot to win, and even more to lose, You and me bound to spend some time wond'rin' what to choose. Goes to show, you don't ever know, Watch each card you play and play it slow, Wait until that deal come round, Don't you let that deal go down, no, no. I been gamblin' hereabouts for ten good solid years, If I told you all that went down it would burn off both of your ears. Goes to show you don't ever know Watch each card you play and play it slow, Wait until that deal come round, Don't you let that deal go down, no, no. Since you...
