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."

You told me goodbye, how was I to know 
You didn't mean goodbye, you meant please don't let me go?
I was having a high time, living the good life, well I know

Now listen here, Baby, 'cause I mean what I say.

I'm having a hard time, living the good life, well I know.
I was losing time, I had nothing to do, 
No one to fight, I came to you. 

Wheels broke down, leader won't draw,
The line is busted, the last one I saw. 
Tomorrow come trouble, tomorrow come pain, 
Now don't think too hard Baby, 'cause I know what I'm saying.

I could show you a high time, living the good life, don't be that way.
Nothing's for certain, it could always go wrong,
Come in when it's raining, go on out when it's gone.
We could have us a high time, living the good life, well I know.
