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 been balling a shiny black steel jack-hammer
Been chippin' up rocks for the great highway
Live five years if I take my time
Ballin' that jack and a drinkin' my wine

I been chippin' them rocks from dawn till doom
While my rider hide my bottle in the other room
Doctor say better stop ballin' that jack
If I live five years I gonna bust my back, yes I will

Easy wind cross the Bayou today
Cause there's a whole lotta women, mama
Out in red on the streets today
And the rivers keep a talkin'
But you never heard a word it said

Gotta find a woman be good to me
Won't hide my liquor try to serve me tea
Cause I'm a stone jack baller and my heart is true
And I'll give everything that I got to you, yes I will

Easy wind going cross the Bayou today
There's a whole lotta women
Out in red on the streets today
And the rivers keep a talkin'
But you never heard a word it said
