I Need A Miracle Lyrics: John Barlow Music: Bob Weir Copyright Ice Nine Publishing; used by permission. I need a woman 'bout twice my age A lady of nobility, gentility and rage A splendour in the dark, lightning on the draw Who'll go right through the book and break each and every law I got a feelin' And it won't go away, oh no Just one thing and I'll be OK I need a miracle every day I need a woman 'bout twice my height Statuesque, raven-tressed, a goddess of the night A secret incantation, candle burning blue We'll consult the spirits, maybe they'll know what to do And it's real And it won't go away, oh no Can't get around and I can't run away I need a miracle every day I need a woman 'bout twice my weight A ton of fun who packs a gun with all that other freight Find her in a side-show, leave her in LA Ride her like a surfer riding on a tidal wave And it's real Believe what I say Just one thing that I gotta say I need a miracle very day It takes dynamite to get me up Too much of everything is just enough One more thing that I gotta say I need a miracle every day

From the Egypt 1978 shows, alternate lyrics in the second ("twice my height") verse: Thrill me to the marrow And I'm in that rendezvous

I think the final version is an improvement--hard to sing "thrill me to the marrow" without thinking of CSN.

Heh. For sure.
