Friday’s GD – “Touch of Grey”

Been a Grateful Dead fan since around 1972 when I was 13/14. Most Friday’s you will find me w/ some variant of Jerry’s genius filling my headphones and speakers …

Today’s hit: Touch of Grey (video)

Lyrics

Must be getting early, clocks are running late
Faint light of the mornin’ sky, looks so phony
Dawn is breakin’ 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 but it’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 but it’s alright
Cows givin’ kerosene, kid can’t read at seventeen
The words he knows are all obscene but it’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 ‘cuz it’s alright
Oh well a touch of grey kinda suits you anyway
And that was all I had to say and it’s alright

I will get by, I will get by
I will get by, I will survive

We will get by, we will get by
We will get by, we will survive

We will get by, we will get by
We will get by, we will survive
