Far Away

Lyrics: Bob Weir
Music: Cochran, Kelly, Weir

Played by Bob Weir with Bobby & The Midnites, and once with Kingfish

You ask why I'm desparate and worried
And hid out down in Mexico
See, there's a woman I left in a hurry
And there's more if you'd like to know

She appeared to me straight out of nowhere
We made magic like some lovers can
But that magic turned black as a nightmare
So I packed up what's left of my sanity and ran

Far away
Get away
Far far away
So far away
Far away
Far away
Got to get away

I suppose I could just have surrendered
Would have been easy to do
Would have been one dizzy bender
She's a sweet little sorceress too

But she'll find me down here, ah, so easy
Some special sense that she's got
God, she's so witchy, so crazy
Yeah, she's got a talent for stirring up the pot

Far away
Trying to get away
Far far away
Run away, run away
Far away
Got to get away
Far away
Got to get away
Far far away
Far away
Got to get away

She might find me tonight, got a feeling she might
She's got some kind of hold on me
I'd try to escape, but still there's a part of me
Want's to just let it be
Yeah we might meet tonight, with a fire so bright
Tomorrow'd be easy to see
A smoking crater, some broken hearts
And some amazing memories

Far away
It's suicide to stay
Far far away
Far away
Got to get away
Get away
Far away
Far away
Far far away
Far away
Got no reason to stay
Got to get away
