Lyrics: David Crosby
Music: David Crosby

Played by Jerry Garcia with David Crosby, Phil Lesh and Mickey Hart in December 1970 in shows billed as "Jerry Garcia and Friends."

I thought I met a man who said he knew a man
Who knew what was going on
I was mistaken, only another stranger that I knew

And I thought that I'd found the light
To guide me through my night and all this darkness
I was mistaken, only reflections of a shadow that I saw

And I thought that I'd seen someone who seemed
At last to know the truth
I was mistaken, only a child laughing in the sun
Jerry Garcia plays on the recording on David Crosby's album "If I Could Only Remember My Name"
