Once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right.
There is a road, no simple highway between the dawn and the dark of night. And if you go no one may follow.That path is for your steps alone.

The Grateful Dead was a very popular American rock band formed in 1965 in Palo Alto, California known for its eclectic style, which fused elements of rock, folk, country, jazz, bluegrass, blues, gospel, and psychedelic rock. They have sold more than 35 million albums worldwide. The Grateful Dead was founded in the San Francisco Bay Area amid the rise of the counterculture of the 1960s. The founding members were Jerry Garcia (lead guitar|, vocals), Bob Weir (rhythm guitar, vocals), Ron "Pigpen" McKernan (keyboards, harmonica, vocals), Phil Lesh (bass, vocals), and Bill Kreutzmann (drums).

Saint Stephen will remain. All he lost he shall regain.

Quotes[edit]

Aoxomoxoa (1969)[edit]

  • Saint Stephen with a rose
    In and out of the garden he goes
    Country garden in the wind and the rain
    Wherever he goes the people all complain ...
    Did he doubt or did he try?
    Answers aplenty in the bye and bye
    Talk about your plenty and talk about your ills
    One man gathers what another man spills
    Saint Stephen will remain
    All he lost he shall regain

Live/Dead (1969)[edit]

  • Dark star crashes pouring its light into ashes.
    Reason tatters, the forces tear loose from the axis...
    Searchlight casting for faults in the clouds of delusion
    Shall we go, you and I while we can
    Through the transitive nightfall of diamonds?

American Beauty (1970)[edit]

  • Most of the cats that you meet on the street speak of true love
    Most of the time, they're sittin' and cryin' at home
    One of these days they know they better be goin'
    Out of the door and down to the street all alone.
  • She come skimming through rays of violet
    She can wade in a drop of dew
    She don't come and I don't follow
    Waits backstage while I sing to you...
    She's a summer love in the spring, fall and winter
    She can make happy any man alive
  • 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?...
  • There is a road, no simple highway
    Between the dawn and the dark of night
    And if you go no one may follow
    That path is for your steps alone.
  • A box of rain will ease the pain and love will see you through
    Believe it if you need it, if you don't just pass it on
    Sun and shower, wind and rain
    In and out the window like a moth before a flame
    And it's just a box of rain, I don't know who put it there
    Believe it if you need it or leave it if you dare
    And it's just a box of rain, or a ribbon for your hair
    Such a long, long time to be gone and a short time to be there.

From the Mars Hotel (1974)[edit]

  • Well I ain't often right but I've never been wrong
    Seldom turns out the way it does in the song.
    Once in a while you get shown the light
    In the strangest of places if you look at it right.
    Ain't nothing wrong with the way she moves
    Scarlet begonias or a touch of the blues.
