Grateful Dead

The Grateful Dead was an American rock band formed in 1965 in Palo Alto, California. The band was known for its unique and eclectic style, which fused elements of rock, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, country, improvisational jazz, psychedelia, and space rock, and for live performances of long musical improvisation. "Their music," writes Lenny Kaye, "touches on ground that most other groups don't even know exists." These various influences were distilled into a diverse and psychedelic whole that made the Grateful Dead "the pioneering Godfathers of the jam band world." They were ranked 57th in the issue The Greatest Artists of all Time by Rolling Stone magazine.

 Struggling with Bertha? Become a better singer in 30 days with these videos!

I had a hard run
Running from your window
I was all night running, running, running 
I wonder if you care? 
I had a run-in 
Run around and run down
Run around a corner
Run smack into a tree

I had to move
Really had to move
That's why if you please 
I am on my bended knees
Bertha don't you come around here anymore

Dressed myself in green
I went down to the sea
Try to see what's going down
Maybe read between the lines
Had a feeling I was falling, falling, falling

Turned around to see 
Heard a voice calling, calling, calling 
You was comin after me
Back to me

I had to move
Really had to move
That's why if you please 
I am on my bended knees
Bertha don't you come around here anymore


Ran into a rainstorm
Ducked into a bar door
It was all night pouring, pouring rain
But not a drop on me 

Test me, test me 
Why don't you arrest me?
Throw me in the jail house
Until the sun goes down
Till it go down

I had to move
Really had to move
That's why if you please 
I am on my bended knees
Bertha don't you come around here anymore
