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.

I'm looking for a chateau, twenty one rooms but one will do
I'm looking for a chateau, twenty one rooms but one will do
I don't want to buy it
I just want to rent it for a minute or two

I met an old mistake walking down the street today
I met an old mistake walking down the street today
I didn't want to be mean about it
I couldn't think of one good thing to say.

[Chorus]
West L.A. fade away, west l.a. fade away
Big red light on the highway, little green light on the freeway.

Got a steady job moving items for the mob
Got a steady job moving items for the mob
Know the pay's pathetic
It's a shame those boys couldn't be more copacetic

[Chorus]

I need a west L.A. girl, already know what I need to know
I need a west L.A. girl, already know what I need to know
Lord, just how far to go.

West L.A. fade away, here's one chance you say.
She tries to live by the golden rule.
Said you treat other people right,
Other people probably treat you cool.
