Someone requested the lyrics to Believe it or Not, and I thought others
might be interested. Don't know the chords, though.

Believe it or Not (Hunter/Garcia)

One or two moments
a piece of your time
is all I am asking
and I'll give you mine
One or two moments
out of all you have got
to show how I love you
believe it or not

Remember the day
I rolled into town
with my heart in my shoes,
my head hanging down?
Now my only trouble
the rest I forgot
is to show how I love you
believe it or not

Done time in the lockup
Done time in the street
Done time on the upswing
and time in defeat
I know what I'm asking
and I know it's a lot
when I say that I love you
believe it or not

I know I'm no angel
my prospects are high
as the flood line in summer
when the river's gone dry
but I'll roll up my shirt-sleeves
and make my best shot
to show how I love you
believe it or not

Right now while the sun shines
on the crest of the hill
with a breeze in the pines
and a gray whippoorwill
making music together
that guitars never caught
let me show how I love you
believe it or not

Hunter comments in "A Box of Rain": "A C&W lyric reminiscent of the kind
of stuff I remember hearing coming from tavern jukeboxes in 1948, when my
father would stop in to have a few while I waited out in the car."

Peace,

Jolie
