I've Got A Home In That Rock

Lyrics: Traditional
Music: Traditional

Played by Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter at Brigid Meier's 16th birthday party in 1961.

Not yet checked against what Jerry sang - this is one traditional version of the lyrics.

I've got a home in that rock, don't you see
I've got a home in that rock, don't you see
Between the earth and sky I thought I heard my Savior cry
You better get home in that rock, don't you see

Now, the rich man Davies lived so well, don't you see
Rich man Davies lived so well, don't you see
Rich man Davies lived so well, when he died he had a home in hell
He had no home in that rock, don't you see

A poor man Lazurus poor as I, don't you see
Poor man Lazurus poor as I, don't you see
Poor man Lazurus poor as I when he died he held my home on high
He had him a home in that rock, don't you see

Now, God gives no other rainbow sign, don't you see
God gives no other rainbow sign, don't you see
God gives no other rainbow sign, no more water but fire next time
You better get a home in that rock, don't you see

You better get a home in that rock, don't you see
You better get a home in that rock, don't you see
Between the earth and sky I thought I heard my Savior cry
You better get a home in that rock, don't you see
You better get a home in that rock, don't you see?
