 Does anybody know the chords of this song. I heard it on
 "Live/Dead" and loved it immeditely. It sounds very "scottish" :-)
St. Stephen!  St. Stephen!  Hey Garcia, play St. Stephen!

Actually, the main body of this song is very easy, it is the part that  
starts with the words ...
     "Lady finger dipped in moonlight..."    that is more difficult,
but anyhow....
E           D            A                           E
St. Stephen with a rose, in and out of the garden he goes
E                     D                  A                             E
Country garden in the wind and the rain, wherever he goes the people all  
E                 D             A                        E        
Stephen prospered in his time, well he may and he may decline
E               D           A                                   E    B
Did it matter? Does it now? Stephen would answer if he only knew how.
E                     D            A                        E
Wishing well with the golden bell, bucket hanging clear to hell
E                  D             A
Hell halfway twixt now and then, Stephen filled it up and lowered it down  
and lowered it down again 

That is the basics....

Oh yeah, the song that follows it on "Live/Dead" is   "The Eleven",
which of course is in 11/4 time, and goes something like this

E           A          B         A
1  2  3     1  2  3    1  2  3   1  2       [repeat until you have reached
                                         an altered state of being]
