New Speedway Boogie Grateful Dead
[Am]Please don't dominate the rap Jack, if you got nothin' new to say. [C]
And also please, don't back up the tracks, this train's got to run today.
[Am]I spent a little time on the mountain, spent a little time on the hill. [C]
[Am]Like some say, better run away; others say you better stand stil[C]l. [G]
[Am]Now I don't know but I been told that it's hard to run with the [C]
weight of gold
[Am]On the other hand, I've heard it said, it's just as hard with the [C]
weight of lead [D]
[Am]Who can deny, who can deny, it's not just a change of style. [C]
One step done and another begun, and I wonder how many miles.
[Am]I spent a little time on the mountain, spent a little time on the hill, [C]
I saw things getting out of hand but I guess they always will.
[Am]Well, I don't know, but I've been told in the heat of the sun a man [C]
died of cold
[Am]Keep on comin' or stand and wait with the sun so dark and the hour so late. [C]
[Am]You can't overlook the lack, Jack, of any other highway to ride, [C]
It's got no signs or dividing lines, and very few rules to guide.
[Am]Now I don't know but I've been told if the horse don't pull you [C]
got to carry the load.
[Am]I don't know whose back`s that strong; maybe find out before too long. [C]
[Am]One way or another, one way or another, this darkness has got to give.
