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