A hundred & fifty concerts,

Followed Jerry & the dead,

Peace, love & music to feed my head,

Occasionally the ground for my bed…J

 

Jerry Garcia should be president,

Even dead a better job he could do,

From a distance he could run the country,

Even being of heaven a resident…J

 

Rode in buses that stank of weed,

Cars held together with tape & wire,

Bogged down many a time in mire,

For us, the Grateful Dead was our creed…J

Gerry Garcia, was indeed one of a kind, he and his fellow band mates enjoyed life until their heart bleeds. Hey Ed, I am a fan and written wonderfully.
