Speaking of Music

Well, yes, I was talking about music yesterday. So I thought I would post today on one of the music icons of the last half century: Jerry Garcia.

Tomorrow marks the 20th anniversary of his death. (Can you believe 20 years?) A few weeks ago the Grateful Dead had their final concerts as a 50-year reunion. (Can you believe 50 years?)

Time now to just enjoy  the music and the memories.

Here are two of the songs that made them famous.


It's the same story the crow told me; it's the only one he knows
Like the morning sun you come and like the wind you go
Ain't no time to hate, barely time to wait
Wo, oh, what I want to know, where does the time go


Sometimes the lights all shining on me;
Other times I can barely see.
Lately it occurs to me what a long, strange trip it's been.

Truckin', I'm a-goin' home.
whoa whoa baby, back where I belong,
Back home, sit down and patch my bones,
and get back truckin' on.
Hey now get back truckin' home.
