I'm So Gone

Lyrics: Jackie Greene
Music: Jackie Greene

A Jackie Greene song played with Phil Lesh and Friends in 2007

I'm not gonna be civil
I'm not gonna watch my tongue nor what I say
I'm gonna dance with the devil
Gonna shovel out dirt for a stiff and shallow grave

'Cause I'm so gone
Such a long, long way from home
I'm holding out for something I can feel
And I'm so lost
Such a long, long way to cross
But I'm holding out for something I can feel

Hey, did you hear about Vegas?
She's got mouths to feed and only one hole keeps them fed
Hey, it's starting to plague us
And it won't be long before one of us is dead

I'm so gone
Such a long, long way from home
I'm holding out for something I can feel
'Cause I'm so lost
Such a long, long way to cross
I'm holding out for something I can feel
I can feel

Oh, how nothing is sacred
Just do what you do just to survive
But show me something that's naked
And I'll show you something that's alive

And I'm so gone
Such a long, long way from home
I'm holding out for something I can feel
And I'm so gone
But my feet just drag me on
And I'm holding out for something I can feel
And I can feel
