So sad, but Robert and Jerry and back together again.
These guys lyrics and music mean as much to me as Jagger/Richards or
McCartney/Lennon combo.
The Magic Makers!

RIP Robert Hunter

What an amazing lyricist, his work with the Grateful Dead alone is a hell of a career let alone all the other songs he wrote with people!

Goin home, goin home
by the waterside I will rest my bones
Listen to the river sing sweet songs
to rock my soul

Goin to plant a weeping willow
On the banks green edge it will grow grow grow
Sing a lullaby beside the water
Lovers come and go - the river roll roll roll

Fare you well, fare you well
I love you more than words can tell
Listen to the river sing sweet songs
to rock my soul

No cause of death has been released as of yet. It is known that he had some surgery recently but no details (see [www.nytimes.com]).

Appears like it was some longer-lasting illness, or at least his death did not come totally unexpected (" ... with his wife at his side ...", Washington Post).

"When the last rose of summer pricks my finger".

Black Muddy River is a great song by any stretch, whether it be by The Dead, or Norma Waterson.

Box of Rain
Grateful Dead

Look out of any window
Any morning, any evening, any day
Maybe the sun is shining
Birds are winging or
Rain is falling from a heavy sky,
What do you want me to do,
To do for you to see you through?
For this is all a dream we dreamed
One afternoon long ago
Walk out of any doorway
Feel your way, feel your way
Like the day before
Maybe you'll find direction
Around some corner
Where it's been waiting to meet you,
What do you want me to do,
To watch for you while you're sleeping?
Well please don't be surprised
When you find me dreaming too

Look into any eyes
You find by you, you can see
Clear through to another day
Maybe been seen before
Through other eyes on other days
While going home,
What do you want me to do,
To do for you to see you through?
It's all…

Ripple
Grateful Dead







If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung
Would you hear my voice come through the music
Would you hold it near as it were your own?

It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken
Perhaps they're better left unsung
I don't know, don't really care
Let there be songs to fill the air

Ripple in still water
When there is no pebble tossed
Nor wind to blow

Reach out your hand if your cup be empty
If your cup is full may it be again
Let it be known there is a fountain
That was not made by the hands of men






There is a road, no simple highway
Between the dawn and the dark of night
And if you go no one may follow
That path is for your steps alone

Ripple in still water
When there is no pebble tossed
Nor wind to blow

You who choose to lead must follow
But if you fall you fall alone
If you should stand then who's to guide you?
If I knew the way I would take you home

"If your cup is full may it be again'' is one of the best lines ever written.
