Weather Report I 
Lyrics: Bob Weir, Eric Andersen
Music: Bob Weir

Copyright Ice Nine Publishing; used by permission.

Winter rain, now tell me why
Summers fade and roses die
The answer came, the wind and rain

Golden hills now veiled in gray
Summer leaves have blown away
Now what remains, the wind and rain

And like a desert spring my lover comes and spreads her wings
(Knowing)
Like a song that's born to soar the sky
(Flowing)
Till the waters all are dry
(Growing)
The loving in her eyes

Circle songs and sands of time
And seasons will end in tumbled rhyme
And little change, the wind and rain

And like a desert spring my lover comes and spreads her wings
(Knowing)
Like a song that's born to soar the sky
(Flowing)
Till the rivers all are dry
(Growing)
The loving in her eyes

Winter gray and falling rain
We'll see summer come again
Darkness fall and seasons change
(Gonna happen every time)
Same old friends the wind and rain
(We'll see summer by and by)
Winter gray and falling rain
(Summers fade and roses die)
We'll see summer come again
(Like a song that's born to soar the sky)

Weather Report Suite was always one of my best favorite GD toons.  I wish
Bobby would revisit it now with the Dead.  I thought it tragic that he didn't
include it on "Weir Here".  As with all thing gone, at least we had it for a
while and there is always the unheard version on my next trade.  Thanks Guys.
Grateful Mike

Yeah, I've heard it several times with The Dead.

My favorite, too.

I have my paper that I did on the Suite now in Word and/or RTF. Would
it be apprpriate to post it here? Or is there a web page that it could
be posted to? Someone would have to htm-it up probably to post on a web
page.

I'll try it and see if the footnote superscripts come thru correctly.
If not, I'll send you an RTF and let you see what you can do with it.

Coming right up.....

Nope, I could tell in the post box, it was going to be all screwed up.
I'll send it to you, David, and if you get a web directory, you can
try it there.

Otherwise, copies are available upon request and I can do Word now for
all you PC people.

Apparently still around and performing.  I think I read on the
Festival Express site that he was on the train.  I wrote to him at his
website and asked for some input about his thoughts and memories of the
writing of Part 1 for my paper, but he never responded.

Eric Anderson wrote one of my very favorite songs from the early 60s
"folk movement," "Thirsty Boots."

Melinda, the footnotes didn't come through iin the RTF you sent me.

I think the best thing woudl be to post it in the topic -- it isn't that long
-- and put the footnotes in manually?

Well, there were other formatting problems as well when I looked at it
in the Engaged window. I really don't have the time to fix them right
now.  I can also save it/send it in Word, if one of our Windoze pals
would accept it and see how it looks.

Wow... whatever the rtf problem is, I really appreciate that link to
his site. A missing link?

The end of Weather Report (winter gray and falling rain..........same old
friends the wind and rain) can be sung as a verse in Franklin's Tower. Note
relationship of the lyrics to those in Franklin's tower.
