Believe It Or Not 
Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jerry Garcia

Copyright Ice Nine Publishing; used by permission.

One or two moments, a piece of your time
Is all that I'm asking, and I'll give you mine
One or two moments out of all you have got
To show how I love you, believe it or not

Remember the day I rolled in to town
With my heart in my shoes, with my head hanging down
Now my only trouble, the rest I forgot
Is to show how I love you, believe it or not

Done time in the lockup, done time in the street
Done time on the upswing and time in defeat
I know what I'm asking, and I know it's a lot
When I say that I love you, believe it or not

I know I'm no angel, my prospects are high
As the flood line in summer when the river's gone dry
But I'll roll up my shirt-sleeves and make my best shot
To show how I love you, believe it or not

Right now while the sun shines on the crest of the hill
With a breeze in the pines and a grey whippoorwill
Making music together that guitars never caught
Let me show how I love you, believe it or not

would the flash have had anything to do with the "Gomorrah" cadence in
the chorus, I wonder?
