Strawberry Fields

Lyrics: Lennon, McCartney
Music: Lennon, McCartney

Played by Phil Lesh and Friends on their Fall 2000 tour, and by The Dead in 2003. Never played by the Grateful Dead, though according to Vince Welnick they rehearsed it.

Let me take you down
'Cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields
Nothing is real
And nothing to get hung about
Strawberry Fields forever

Living is easy with eyes closed
Musunderstanding all you see
It's getting hard to be someone but it all works out
It doesn't matter much to me

No one I think is in my tree
I mean it must be high or low
That is you can't, you know, tune in but in but it's all right
That is I think it's not too bad


Always, no sometimes, think it's me
But you know I know when it's a dream
I think I know I mean a 'yes', but it's all wrong
That is I think I disagree
