Clementine Lyrics: Robert Hunter Music: Phil Lesh Copyright Ice Nine Publishing; used by permission. Chopped olive sandwiches, roses and wine Red ripe persimmons, my sweet Clementine I go on, I go on, I can't fill my cup There's a hole in the bottom, the well has dried up I run through the forest, I cut past the vine Head through the thickets, many a time [Field full] of voices, sweet voices behind I left for the comfort of cold Clementine

Just came across this piece on the Bell - Carter Olive Company, which says: "In the early 1930's, "Bell's" chopped olives were widely used in chopped olive sandwiches (considered a delicacy at the time)" http://goldenwestadventures.com/Corning/BellCarter.html

I get chopped olives on the Saturday special I get from Subways to take to croquet.

This song was my personal soundtrack 20 years ago after I had fallen in love with a woman whom I eventually thought might be The One For Me...and proceeded to do everything I could to mess it all up; of course she rejected the heck out of me. This song just conveyed such a feeling of choked hopelessness and romantic desolation to me.
