I Will Take You Home 
Lyrics: Brent Mydland
Music: Brent Mydland

Little girl lost in a forest of dreams
It's a dark old wood, and it's damp with dew
Hoot owl hoots, for a moment it seems
Something big and cold got a hold of you
Just when everything gets scary
Daddy's coming round for his darling again
Hold my hand with your little fingers
Daddy's loving arms gonna gather you in

Ain't no way the Bogeyman can get you
You can close your eyes, the world is gonna let you
Your daddy's here and never will forget you
I will take you home
I will take you home
Gonna carry you back home in my arms
I will take you home

Long is the road we must travel on down
Short are the legs that will struggle behind
I wish I knew for sure just where we're bound
What we will be doing, and what we're gonna find
Wherever we go, there will be birds to cheer you
Flowers to color in the fields around
Wherever we go, I'll be right here near you
You can't get lost when you're always found

Ain't no fog that's thick enough to hide you
Your daddy's gonna be right here beside you
If your fears should start to get inside you
I will take you home
I will take you home
Gonna carry you back home in my arms
I will take you home

on Father's day ,1990, Brent sang this at Shoreline, with his daughter
sitting on the bench with him ;if not the last performance of the song,
certainly the last in California. A very kitschy event- not expected at a
dead concert, but we all knew Brent was different, didn't we? Respectfully

too bad he wasn't strong enough to deliver on the promises in the
lyric.

It was, nonetheless, a very sweet moment, one that made subsequent
events all the harder to take. There were numerous cute little 
Mydland and Barlow girls in evidence, and it was one of those
perfect little Sunday-afternoon Dead show moments.

I always did like the Sunday shows.
