Accidentally Like A Martyr

Lyrics: Warren Zevon
Music: Warren Zevon

Issued on the Jerry Garcia box set "All Good Things." It seems to have been a one-off performance, with Jerry playing electric piano, Bob Mathews playing bass and Steve Parish playing drums.

The phone don't ring
And the sun refuse to shine
Never thought I would pay so dearly
For what was already mine
For such a long, long time

We made mad love, shadow love
Random love, and abandoned love
Accidentally like a martyr
The hurt gets worse and the heart gets harder


The days slide by
Should have done, should have done, they all sigh
Never thought I'd ever be so lonely
After such a long, long time
Time out of mind
