Biography

The Grateful Dead was a rock band that formed in 1965 in San Francisco, California, United States from the remnants of another band, "Mother McCree's Uptown Jug Champions," The Grateful Dead were known for their unique and eclectic songwriting style which fused elements of rock, folk music, bluegrass, blues, country, and jazz, and also for live performances of long modal jams. The group disbanded immediately after the death of singer/guitarist Jerry Garcia in 1995, although the surviving band members have since performed together under a number of other names, including The Other Ones, The Dead, Furthur, Dead & Company, and others.

    Lyrics
    I lit out from Reno
    I was trailed by twenty hounds
    Didn't get to sleep that night 'til the morning came around
    Set out runnin' but I take my time
    A friend of the Devil is a friend of mine

    Lyrics
    Driving that train
    High on cocaine
    Casey Jones you better watch your speed
    Trouble ahead, trouble behind
    And you know that notion just crossed my mind.

    Lyrics
    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

    Lyrics
    Truckin' got my chips cashed in. Keep truckin', like the do-dah man
    Together, more or less in line, just keep truckin' on.
    Arrows of neon and flashing marquees out on Main Street.
    Chicago, New York, Detroit and it's all on the same street.
    Your typical city involved in a typical daydream

    Lyrics
    Sugar Magnolia blossoms blooming
    Head's all empty and I don't care
    Saw my baby down by the river
    Knew she'd have to come up soon for air
    Sweet blossom come on under the willow
