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)

Mike Myer writes: 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.

Post it! Oor I could get a web directory for this conference and post it there.
Melinda Belleville (mellobelle) Mon 30 Aug 04 10:51
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.....
Melinda Belleville (mellobelle) Mon 30 Aug 04 10:55
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.

Ooooh... just let it wash over me. Who is that guy, Anderson?
Melinda Belleville (mellobelle) Mon 30 Aug 04 11:25
<http://www.ericandersen.com/> 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?
Melinda Belleville (mellobelle) Tue 31 Aug 04 07:39
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?
