One thought on “The Grateful Dead – ‘Touch of Grey’

  1. Must be getting early, clocks are running late
    Paint by number morning sky looks so phony
    Dawn is breaking everywhere, light a candle, curse the glare
    Draw the curtains I don’t care, but it’s alright
    I will get by, I will get by, I will get by, I will survive.

    I see you’ve got your list out, say your piece and get out
    Guess I get the gist of it, but it’s alright
    Sorry that you feel that way.
    The only thing 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 ables, and the bakers, and the seas
    The abc’s we all must face, try to win a little grace.
    It’s a lesson to me, the deltas and the East and the freeze
    The abc’s we all think of, try to heed 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
    Cow is giving 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.

    Shoe is on the hand that fits, there’s really nothing much to it
    Whistle through your teeth and spit, but it’s alright
    Oh well a touch of grey, kinda suits you anyway,
    That was all I had to say, but it’s alright I will get by,
    I will get by, I will get by, I will survive.
