Asia Minor

Lyrics: Carter, Gilbert, Quigley, Hovey
Music: Carter, Gilbert, Quigley, Hovey

Played byBob Weir with Kingfish

Gulhane Hotel for the first night (note 1)
Just below the Black Sea
Istanbul left me cold turkey
Better places to be
Heading east from Asia Minor
Rendezvous in Katmandu

I'm humping a camel from Kabul
Pakistan not very far
My Afghani Brown is taking me down
Into Apashawhr
I'm heading east from Asia Minor
Rendezvous in Katmandu

There must be silver lining
Well I come so far to find her
I know there's no place finer
Got to get away from Asia Minor

Humping a camel from Kabul
Pakistan not very far
My Afghani Brown is taking me down
Into Apashawahr
Heading east from Asia Minor
Rendezvous in Katmandu

There must be silver lining
'Cause I come so far to find her
I know there's no place finer
Got to get away from Asia Minor

Notes
(1) thanks to Sam Rahimoglu for the correct spelling of Gulhane Hotel. He tells me "This was an old cheap hotel, a meeting survey pin for hippies heading east in the 70's."
