Ophelia

Lyrics: Robbie Robertson
Music: Robbie Robertson

Played by Phil Lesh and Friends in January 2013.

Boards on the window, mail by the door
What would anybody leave so quickly for
Ophelia
Where have you gone

The old neighborhood just ain't the same
Nobody knows just what became of
Ophelia
Tell me, what went wrong

Was it somethin' that somebody said
Honey, you know we broke the rules
Was somebody up against the law
Honey, you know I'd die for you

Ashes of laughter, the coast is clear
Why do the best things always disappear
Like Ophelia
Please darken my door

Was it somethin' that somebody said?
Honey, you know we broke the rules
Was somebody up against the law
Honey, you know I'd die for you

They got your number, scared and running
But I'm still waitin' for the second coming
Of Ophelia
Please come back home
Please come back home
Please, please come back
Please, please come back home
