Grateful Dead

The Grateful Dead was an American rock band formed in 1965 in Palo Alto, California.[1][2] 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,[3][4] and for live performances of long musical improvisation.[5][6] "Their music," writes Lenny Kaye, "touches on ground that most other groups don't even know exists."[7] These various influences were distilled into a diverse and psychedelic whole that made the Grateful Dead "the pioneering Godfathers of the jam band world."[8] They were ranked 57th in the issue The Greatest Artists of all Time by Rolling Stone magazine.[9] They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994 and their… more »

Rat in a drain ditch, caught on a limb, you know better but I know him. 
Like I told you, what I said, Steal your face right off your head.
Now he's gone, now he's gone, Lord he's gone, he's gone. 
Like a steam locomotive, rollin' down the track 
He's gone, gone, nothin's gonna bring him back, he's gone.
Nine mile skid on a ten mile ride, hot as a pistol but cool inside. 

Cat on a tin roof, dogs in a pile, 
Nothin' left to do but smile, smile, smile!
Now he's gone, now he's gone Lord he's gone, he's gone. 
Like a steam locomotive, rollin' down the track 
He's gone, gone, nothin's gonna bring him back, he's gone.

Goin' where the wind don't blow so strange, 
Maybe off on some high cold mountain chain. 
Lost one round but the price wasn't anything, 
A knife in the back and more of the same.
Same old, rat in a drain ditch, caught on a limb,
You know better but I know him. 
Like I told you, what I said, 
Steal your face right off your head.

Now he's gone, now he's gone Lord he's gone, he's gone. 
Like a steam locomotive, rollin' down the track 
He's gone, gone, nothin's gonna bring him back, he's gone.
Oh, nothin's gonna bring him back.
