Moonlight Mile

Lyrics: Jagger, Richard
Music: Jagger, Richard

Played by Jerry Garcia with Keith & Donna in the JGB in 1976. Thanks to Joe Barthel for checking the lyrics. Also played by Luther Dickinson with Phil Lesh and Friends in November 2013 as part of their (and American Jubilee's) cover of the album "Sticky Fingers".

When the wind blows
And the rain feels cold
With a head full of snow
With a head full of snow

In the window
There's a face you know
Don't the nights pass slow
Don't the nights pass slow

The sound of strangers sendin' nothing to my mind
Just another mad mad day on the road
I am just living to be lying by your side
But I'm just about a moonlight mile down the road

Made a rag pile
Of my shiny clothes
Gonna warm my bones
Gonna warm my bones

I got silence
On my radio
Let the airwaves flow
Let the airwaves flow

For I am sleeping under strange strange skies
Just another mad mad day on the road
My dreams are fading down the railway lines
But I'm just about a moonlight mile down the road

I'm hiding sister and I'm dreaming
I'm riding down your moonlight mile
I'm hiding baby and I'm dreaming
I'm ridin' down your moonlight mile
I'm ridin' down your moonlight mile
