Alabama Getaway Lyrics

in Go To Heaven Album

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.

Saint Of Circumstance Lyrics

Saint Of Circumstance Lyrics | Grateful Dead

This must be heaven, tonight I cross the line. You must be the angel, I though I might never find. Was it you I heard singing, Oh while I was chasin' dreams. Driven by the wind, like the dust that blows around, And the rain fallin' down, but I never know. Got to be heaven, cause here's where the rainbow ends. If this ain't the real thing, then it's close enough to pretend. When that wind blows, when the night's about to fall. You can hear the silence call, it's a certain sort of sound, Like the rain fallin' down. Holes in what's left of my...

Lost Sailor Lyrics

Lost Sailor Lyrics | Grateful Dead

Compass card is spinning, helm is swinging to and fro Oh, where is the dog star, oh, where's the moon. You're a lost sailor, been away too long at sea. Somedays the gales are howling, sometimes the sea is still as glass. Oh, raise the main sail, oh, lash the mast. You're a lost sailor, been away too long at sea. Now the shorelines beckon, there is a price for being free. There's a sea bird cryin' and there's a ghost wind blowing And it's calling you, to that misty swirling sea. Till the chains of your dreams are broken, No place in this world...

Easy To Love You Lyrics

Easy To Love You Lyrics | Grateful Dead

Good, good morning, so good to see you weren't just a dream of mine Real as a raven, real as thunder, real as the sun shinin' But still so very undefined Can't imagine what's behind those sleepy eyes Little stranger, don't try to hide now You look so young when you're afraid There is no danger, but from the devil He may want you, but I'm in his way You don't know how easy it is You don't know how easy it is to love you And come the moonrise when the dew falls Don't be the sun that fades away Don't leave me darkness, she's no lover, she hides...

Don't Ease Me In Lyrics

Don't Ease Me In Lyrics | Grateful Dead

Don't ease, don't ease, don't ease me in. I've been all night long commin' home, don't ease me in. I was standing on the corner, talking to Miss B When I turned around sweet mama, she was way across town So I'm walkin' down the street with a dollar in my hand I've been lookin' for a woman sweet mama, ain't got no man. The girl I love, she's sweet and true, You the dress she wears, sweet mama, it's pink and blue, She brings me coffee, she brings me tea, She brings me 'bout every damm thing but the jailhouse keys.

Feel Like A Stranger Lyrics

Feel Like A Stranger Lyrics | Grateful Dead

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...

Althea Lyrics

Althea Lyrics | Grateful Dead

I told Althea I was feeling lost, lacking in some direction. Althea told me upon scrutiny that my back might need protection. I told Althea that treachery was tearing me limb from limb. Althea told me better cool down boy, settle back, easy Jim. You may be Saturday's child, all alone, moving with a tinge of grace. You may be a clown in the burying ground, or just another pretty face. You may meet the fate on Ophelia, sleeping and penchence to dream. Honest to the point of recklessness, self-centered in the extreme. Ain't nobody messing with...

Far From Me Lyrics

Far From Me Lyrics | Grateful Dead

You say you want to try again, wear it down between the lines Well, I have a better end in mind it doesn't seem to really have you Close your eyes to see though I know you don't mean to be You are so far from me There was something I had caught inside screaming hard to make it go And tied me down low, it doesn't seem you really have to Close you eyes to see, you've been all you'll be to me Though I know you don't mean to be, it's just too late And we can't relate at all This is the last time I wanna say so long This song is my last song for...
