Saint Of Circumstance Lyrics: John Barlow Music: Bob Weir Copyright Ice Nine Publishing; used by permission. This must be heaven Tonight I crossed the line You must be the angel I thought I might never find Was it you I heard singing Oh while I was chasing dreams Driven by the wind Like the dust that blows around And the rain fallin' down But I never know (sure don't know) I never know, never know (sure don't know) This must be heaven 'Cause here's where the rainbow ends And at last it's the real thing Or close enough to pretend When that wind blows (wind blows) And the night starts to fall I can hear the silence call It's a certain sort of sound And the rain fallin' down Rain fallin' down Holes in what's left of my reason Holes in the knees of my blues Odds against me been increasing But I'll pull through Never could read no road-map Now I don't know what the weather might do Hear that witch wind whine See that dog star shine I got a feelin' there's no time to lose No time to lose I never know (sure don't know) I will never know, no, no (sure don't know) Well it's been heaven Even rainbow's will end Now my sails are filling The wind so willing And I'm good as gone again I'm still walkin' So I'm sure that I can dance Just a saint of circumstance Just a tiger in a trance And the rain fallin' down Rain falling down Rain falling down Well I never know Just don't know Just don't know Sure don't know what I'm goin' for Sure don't know But I'm gonna go for it for sure Yeah for sure, yeah for sure Sure don't know what I'm goin' for Just don't never know, never never know But I'm gonna go for it for sure No no no, that's for sure, yeah for sure Sure don't know what I'm goin' for Just don't never never know, no no But I'm gonna go for it for sure That's for sure Sure don't know what I'm goin' for Yeah maybe going on a dream, going on a dream now But I'm gonna go for it for sure Maybe going on a feeling, maybe going on a feeling Maybe going on a feeling

An exchange when Bruce was rehearsing with the Dead in 1990: Bruce: Just what is a "saint of circumstance"? Jerry: If you find them nailing you up in the town square for some cause, that makes you a saint of circumstance. You don't know why they're doing it. At least that's what I always thought. Involuntarily [inaudible] Phil: You walk into a saloon door and the whole place falls down around you [inaudible] Jerry: Absolutely, sure. Right. Phil: They're won't be anybody left. Jerry: If it goes all the way for you and all the way against you, you're pretty much a saint of circumstance. Phil: The way it only lasts a [inaudible] Jerry: Yeah, right.

Wow--the fact that Jerry had a ready answer is amazing! And I love that Bruce asked. Very cool, thanks for digging that one up, Alex!
