Djinn Djinn

Lyrics: Mickey Hart
Music: Mickey Hart, Cliff Goldmacher, Crystal Monee Hall, Tim Hockenberry, Zakir Hussain, Ben Younus

One of the new songs with lyrics by Robert Hunter introduced by the Mickey Hart Band in 2011.

Sweet scented jewels of my land
With hidden treasures flow
From invisible hands that touch the stones
Only spirits know

Seven drinkers of the wind
Gather round the fire
The sun beats down upon the sand
And fills our hearts' desire

Inside my golden tent
Tethered horses by my door
Tell me long lost stories
Eat my bread and want no more

From your sweet tongue, heart of gold
The spirits find us here
With beauty beyond words I know
That paradise is near

In the shadow of the sun, the water runs dry
The whole world dances, and the desert cries
The whole world dances, and the desert cries
Djinn djinn
Djinn djinn
Djinn djinn
Djinn djinn

The earth is rusty red
The weathered rocks as white as bones
The truth of men, from ancient times
Still sits on golden throne

Hot dry days, and long, long nights
Beneath the crescent moon
The weeping desert wind will wash
Our sorrows from these dunes

Smile on us, oh Sultan king
Shine on us like the sun
Tie our hearts together so
The two can beat as one

In a distant land only
Desert flowers grow
Two jackals make of stone so that
Together they will know

In the shadow of the sun, the water runs dry
The whole world dances, and the desert cries
The whole world dances, and the desert cries
Djinn djinn
Djinn djinn
Djinn djinn
Djinn djinn
