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."

Operator, can you help me
Help me if you please
Give me the right area code
And the number that I need
My rider left upon the Midnight Flyer
Singin' like a summer breeze

I think she's somewhere down south
Down about Baton Rouge
But I just a can't remember no number
A number I can use
Directory don't have it
Central done forgot it
Gotta find a number to use.

Trying to check out her number
Trying to run down her line.
Operator said that's priv'ledged information
And it ain't no business of mine
It's floodin' down in Texas
Poles are out in Utah
Gotta find a private line

She could be hangin' 'round the steel mill
Working in a house of blue lights
Riding a getaway bus out of Portland
Talking to the night
I don't know where she's going
I don't care where she's been
Long as she's been doin' it right

Long as she's been doin' it right
