Touch of Grey


Time for another song. This one is from one of my favorite bands that helped shape me into the person that I am today and gave me a reason to travel to parts unknown.


'Touch Of Grey' by the Grateful Dead

Must be getting early
Clocks are running late
Faint light of the morning sky
looks so phony
Dawn is breaking everywhere
Light a candle, curse the glare
Draw the curtains,
I don't care, cuz
It's alright
I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive

I see you've got your fist out
Say your piece and get out
Yes I get the gist of it,
butIt's alright
Sorry that you feel that way
The only there is to say:
Every silver lining's
got a touch of grey
I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive

It's a lesson to me
The eagles and the beggars and the seas
The ABC's we all must face
Try to keep a little grace
It's a lesson to me
The deltas and the east and the freeze
The ABC's we all think of
And try to win a little love

I know the rent is in arrears
The dog has not been fed in years
It's even worse than it appears,
butIt's alright
Cows giving kerosene
Kid can't read at seventeen
The words he knows are all obscene,
butIt's alright
I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive

The shoe is on the hand that fits.
There's really nothing much to it
Whistle through your teeth and spit,
cuzIt's alright
Oh well, a touch of grey
Kinda suits you anyway
And that was all I had to say,
andIt's alright
I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive
Until next time.....
