Black Peter Lyrics

in History of the Grateful Dead, Volume One (Bear’s Choice) Album

Tabs too difficult? Try these easy step-by-step video lessons and learn fast!

All of my friends come to see me last night,
I was laying in my bed and dying.
Annie Bonneau from St. Angel say the weather down there so fine.

Just then the wind came squalling through the dark,
But who can the weather command?
Just want to have a little peace to die,
And a friend or two I love at hand.

Fever roll up to a hundred and five.
Roll on up, gonna roll back down.
One more day I find myself alive,
Tomorrow maybe go beneath the ground.

See here how everything led up to this day,
And it's just like any other day that's ever been.
Sun going up and then the sun going down.
Come around, come around.

The people might know, but the people don't care,
That a man can be as poor as me.
Take a look at poor Peter, he's lying in pain,
Now let's come run and see, run and see,
Run and see, run, run and see, and see.

I've Been All Around This World Lyrics

I've Been All Around This World Lyrics | Grateful Dead

Up on the Blue Ridge Mountains, there I'll take my stand. Up on the Blue Ridge Mountains, there I'll take my stand. A rifle on my shoulder, six shooter in my hand; Oh Lord, I been all around this world. Lulu, my Lulu come and open the door. Lulu, my Lulu come and open the door. Before I have to walk in with my old 'forty-four'. Oh Lord, I been all around this world. Mama and Papa, little sister makes three. Mama and Papa, little sister makes three. They're comin' in the mornin' ; that's the last you'll see of me. Oh Lord, I been all around...

Dark Hollow Lyrics

Dark Hollow Lyrics | Grateful Dead

I'd rather be in some dark hollow where the sun don't ever shine Then to be at home alone and knowin' that you're gone Would cause me to lose my mind. So blow your whistle freight train take me far on down the track I'm going away, I'm leaving today I'm goin', but I ain't comin' back. I'd rather be in some dark hollow where the sun don't ever shine Then to be in some big city, in a small room, with you upon my mind. Well I'm going away, I'm leaving today I'm goin' but I ain't comin' back.

Katie Mae Lyrics

Katie Mae Lyrics | Grateful Dead

Well you know Katie Mae is a good girl Folks say she don't run around at night I made a mistake and she don't run around at night Yes, you can bet your last dollar Katie Mae will treat you right. Well some folks say she must be a Cadillac But I say she got to be a T-model Ford Yes she got the shape alright, but she can't carry no heavy load. And she walks this life Her daddy got oil wells in his backyard Every time she got to working that woman she never has to work too hard. I say bye-bye poor Katie Mae These are the last words I got to...
