I Will Take You Home Lyrics: Brent Mydland Music: Brent Mydland Copyright Ice Nine Publishing; used by permission. 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

Bbrian Bradberry writes: 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 submitted;Brian Bradberry(formerly of Pacifica,CA)

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.
