Lyrics: Donna Godchaux
Music: Donna Godchaux

Recorded by the Jerry Garcia Band but seemingly never performed live. Not to be confused with the Beatles song which was played by the Grateful Dead in the 1990s.

Here I am, on the lam
Ready to go
Brighter days have hurried me along
Nobody's wrong

Love stays the same
A heart's not to blame
Nothing is over
Now it don't worry me at all
There's just got to be some kind of overflow
Nobody falls

People, we cry, when wells go dry
It threatens tomorrow
Try to find some ways to ease the fright
Burn into the night

But maybe a little rain would soothe the pain
And drown our sorrows
Looking straight at all that lives again
Until we get our fill of overflows
Nobody knows

In search of love, the seasons above
Have taken to wander
Unlike the ones we used to know
Where did they go?

Well, here I am, on the lam
Low overflow
Brighter days have hurried me along
To see the rain come shining through
Nobody's blue

Oh seagull, tis an hour of plight
Energy from your wing helps bring the rain
Call on your brotherhood of flight
And let it rain all night

Oh sky lookin clear and bright
Moon, with your own true light
Turn the tides and rain all night

Turn the tides and rain all night
