First of all, a major thank-you to Alan Trist and Ice Nine Publishing for
granting permission for us to include the lyrics here.

Greetings, readers and posters! This is meant to be a fairly free-wheeling
discussion of the lyrics to most every song performed and recorded by the
band. We start each topic with pointers to Alex Allan's Grateful Dead Lyric
and Song Finder (LASF) and to my Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics (AGDL),
then, where possible and permissible, we post the lyrics. Thenceforward,
it's up to you--what memories does the song trigger, what have the lyrics
meant to you over time, what questions do you have, (not that anyone will
have any easy answers...)?

In the spirit of the current seeming re-emergence of Grateful Dead
energy moving forward, via Furthur's incredible series of small
rehearsal shows, combined with a number of big concerts and heading
into a tour, I'm proposing that we add the new songs they are creating,
or originals that they (Phil and Bob) have been performing post-GD
with thier individual bands, but are now continuing into the active
repertoire. What are those tunes? I know of two I'm curious about:
"Welcome to the Dance." I had thought of including "Magnolia Mountain,"
but am unsure if, given that it's a Ryan Adams song, it qualifies. Any
others? "Welcome to the Dance" is up on Alex's site, so I can add a
topic for it.

Other possibilities from recent Furthur sets include:

"Money for Gasoline"
"Silvio"
"No More Do I"

That's all I can spot, outside of a couple of Ryan Adams songs.

I'm not sure what the rules might be, David, but I am strongly in
favour of any injection of new energy.

We get to make up the "rules," I would guess...I just wondered if
those Ryan Adams songs were really more part of his repertoire, or part
of P&F.

I think you should qualify the songs in the topic title to avoid
confusion with gd songs performed with garcia

such as
xxxxxx (further)
yyyyyy (phil and friends)
zzzzzz (ratdog)
aaaaaa (hunter)

or whatever other band in the past or future

However, I would need help in re-naming the two topics on songs of
this type I just started....how do you re-name a topic?

I have just received a copy of Stephen Calt's Barrelhouse Words, a
blues dialect dictionary. I shall scour it over the weekend for
relevant info (eg boxback knitties). If you can think of any likely
phrases that I should look up, let me know.

Thanks everyone! Next step is to go to Buckingham Palace to get dubbed
by the Queen with her sword - hope she has a steady arm.
