Rhapsody In Red

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jerry Garcia

Played by Jerry Garcia with his solo bands from 1978 to 1985 but then dropped from the repertiore.

I love to hear that Rhapsody in Red
It just knocks me right out of my head
Lifts me up here
Just floatin's around
Sends me way up
And it don't let me down

I love to hear that Rhapsody in Red
On my feet or laid back in my bed
Takes me way back
Where I don't mind
Takes me way back
In my time
My time

Sail away on that Rhapsody in Red
Don't care where those
Other rainbows led
With all those northern lights
Just blowing away
Got no thought to relate
In the same old way

Love to feel it flood down to my soul
Loving feel just like in days of old
I sing blues
Where has it led?
Gimme some more
Rhapsody in Red
In Red
