Touch of Grey

You have to love the Grateful Dead…right?

Fell down eight stairs in my own home on Thursday afternoon.  DO NOT CARRY PILES OF STUFF when you walk down the stairs!  This gives new meaning to EPIPHANY!!  The medical report is…the entire right side of my body is contused…no fractures…AMAZING!  So, I’m sitting here on pillows waiting to get better….more mobile each day…but it’s SLOW GOING!  In Jerry Garcia’s words…We will get by!

I love that at the introduction to the wee Letterman clip below, Jerry and Dave are playing Scrabble!

“Touch Of Grey”

Must be getting early, clocks are running late.
Paint by numbers morning sky, looks so phony.
Dawn is breaking everywhere, light a candle, curse the glare
Draw the curtains I don’t care ’cause it’s alright
I will get by, I will get by, I will get by, I will survive.

I see you’ve got your list out, say your piece and get out.
Guess I get the gist of it ’cause it’s alright
Oh, well, anyway, sorry that you feel that way.
The only thing there is to say
Every silver lining’s got a touch of grey
I will get by, I will get by, I will get by, I will survive.

It’s a lesson to me
The Ables and the beggars and the thieves
The ABC’s
We all think of
And try to keep a little grace

It’s a lesson to me
The Deltas and the East and the Freeze
The ABC’s we all think of
And try to give a little love

I know the rent is in arrears, the dog has not been fed in years
It’s even worse than it appears ’cause it’s alright

Cow is given kerosene, kid can’t read at seventeen
The words he knows are all obscene ’cause it’s alright
I will get by, I will get by, I will get by, I will survive.

It’s a lesson to me
The Deltas and the East and the Freeze
The ABC’s we all think of
And try to keep a little love

The shoe is on the hand it fits, there’s really nothing much to it
Whistle through your teeth and spit ’cause it’s alright

Oh, well, a touch of gray, kinda suits you anyway,
That’s all I had to say ’cause it’s alright
I will get by, I will get by, I will get by, I will survive.

It’s a lesson to me,
The deltas and the East and the free
The ABC’s we all must face,
Try to save a little grace.

We will get by. We will get by. We will get by. We will survive
We will get by. We will get by  We WILL SURVIVE!

  1. The only time I’ve ever fallen was when I was carrying a sack of groceries up 4 steps and couldn’t see them as well as I should have. I stubbed my toe on the 2nd one and the groceries and I sprawled onto the others. I had a sore shin from hitting a higher step. So, I agree with you about loads and stairs. Glad nothing was broken!
