Lazy River Road

Way down upon (San Paul slew?)
A wise man sings the blues
Selling roses and (waiting for the shaft?)
(A Spanish love stars in my dreams)
(Grabbed a bunch, through with your ways?)
(Easy in my dreams)

Way down, down along lazy river road

Way down upon (shadow follow bog?)
(Aint no)(___ ____ ____?)
Run hide and seek in your own backyard
(Momma's bettin' you'll fall down?)
All night long I sing love sweet songs
Down by the water (cold? ohh?)

Way down, down along lazy river road

Moonlight (waves), while houndogs bay
Never quite catch the tune
Stars fall down in buckets like rain [some girl screams "like rain" on cue:]
But there ain't no standin' 'round
Bright blue boxcars, train by train
(Clouded my) dreams unfold

Way down, down along lazy river road

Way down upon (Seminole Square)
(Every other rivers tide?)
Call for me and I will be there
For the price of a (tennessee ride)
Nighttime double punches into today
Like a truck downshiftin' (its load)

Way down, down along lazy river road

Moonlight (waves), while houndogs bay
Never quite catch the tune
Stars fall down in buckets like rain
But there ain't no standin' 'round
Bright blue boxcars, train by train
Cloud of wild dreams unfold

Way down, down along lazy river road

Thread the needle right through the eye
Thread that lonesome (trail?)
All the others are (left, despi-ite goin' along with you?)
Never cared much for carelessness
Oh how your bright eyes shown

Way down, down along lazy river road
Way down, down along lazy river road
Way down, down along that lazy river road

Lazy River Road
(Hunter/Garcia)
-----------------

Way down along Sycamore Slew
A white man sings the blues
Selling roses of paper mache
And specks of starlight dew
I swiped a bunch and threw it your way
Where hazy moonlight glow(ed)
Way down, down along lazy river road

Way down upon shadowfall wall
End of the avenue
Run, hide, seek in your own backyard
Mama's backyard won't do
All night long I sing love's sweet song
Down where the water flow(ed)
Way down, down along lazy river road

(Chorus:) Moonlight wanes as hound dogs bay
Never quite catch the tune
Stars fall down in buckets like rain
Till there ain't no standin' room
Bright blue boxcars, train by train
Clatter while dreams unfold
Way down, down along lazy river road

Way down upon Seminole Square
(Bending) of the river tide
Call for me and I will be there
For the price of the taxi ride
Nighttime (double-clutches) into the day
Like a truck downshifting slow
Way down, down along lazy river road

(solo)
(chorus)

Thread the needle right through the eye
The thread that runs so true
All the others I let pass by
I only wanted you
I never cared much for careless love
Oh, how your bright eyes glow
Way down, down along lazy river road

Way down upon Sycamore Slough
A white man sings the blues
selling roses of paper mache
with flecks of starlight dew
I swiped a bunch and threw it your way
where hazy moonlight glowed
Way down down along Lazy River Road

Way down upon Shadowfall Ward
End of the avenue
Run, hide, seek in your own backyard
Mama's backyard won't do
All night long I sang Love's Sweet Song
down where the water flowed
Way down down along LAzy River Road

Moonlight wails as hound dogs bay
but never quite catch the tune
Stars fall down in buckets like rain
till there ain't no standing room
Bright blue boxcars train by train
clatter where dreams unfold
Way down down along Lazy River Road

Way down upon Seminole Square
belly of the river tide
call for me and I will be there
for the price of a taxi ride
Night double-clutches into today
like a truck downshifting its load
Way down down along Lazy River Road

Thread the Needle
right through the eye
The thread that runs so true
All the others I let pass by
I only wanted you
Never cared for careless love
but how your bright eyes glowed
Way down down along Lazy River Road
