He's Gone Lyrics: Robert Hunter Music: Jerry Garcia Copyright Ice Nine Publishing; used by permission. Rat in a drain ditch, caught on a limb You know better, but I know him Like I told you, like I said Steal your face right off your head Chorus And now he's gone Now he's gone, Lord he's gone He's gone Like a steam locomotive rolling down the track He's gone, gone, and nothing's gonna bring him back He's gone Nine mile skid on a ten mile ride Hot as a pistol but cool inside Cat on a tin roof, dogs in a pile Nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile [chorus] Going where the wind don't blow so strange Maybe off on some high cold mountain range Lost one round but the price wasn't anything A knife in the back and more of the same Same old Rat in a drain ditch, caught on a limb You know better, but I know him Like I told you, like I said Steal your face right off your head [chorus] Ooh, nothing's gonna bring him back Ooh, nothing's gonna bring him back Ooh, nothing's gonna bring him back [etc]

Dr. Paul Smith writes: Well, there's always the risk that in my ignorance, I'm rehashing something that's been mentioned countless times already, but... I'm surprised to see that in the discussion of the line "Steal your face right off your head" in He's Gone, there's no mention of French director George Franju's 1959 Cinema fantastique classic "Les yeux sans visage" ("Eyes without a face"). It's about a doctor who, yes, steals faces from young women in order to graft them onto the destroyed face of his daughter. She was terribly disfigured in an accident that he caused. It's a particularly timely film right now in light of last week's apparently successful face transplant by French doctors. Dr. Paul Smith Alverno College Milwaukee

Wasn't there a Billy Idol song called "Eyes without a Face"?

Does any one know of a list of dedications they've done? I know about Bobby Sands (5/6/81), Len Bias (date?), and I'm pretty sure they dedicated it to Sonny Heard at the Greek. Any others?

and it looks like the Len Bias dedication was 6/21/86 (according to setlist.com) the Marley one i knew was the day after he died. that one choked me up big time.
