Blues for Allah

Post by Joe Bese on Fri Feb 11, 2011 3:27 pm

Not for everyone. This song has NO political significance



"Blues For Allah"
Words by Robert Hunter; music by Jerry Garcia
Copyright Ice Nine Publishing; used by permission.

Arabian wind
The Needle's Eye is thin
The Ships of State sail on mirage
but drown in sand
in No-Man's Land
where ALLAH does command

What good is spilling
blood? It will not
grow a thing


"TASTE ETERNITY"
the sword sings Blues for ALLAH
In'sh'ALLAH


They lie where they fall
There's nothing more to say
The desert stars are bright tonight,
let's meet as friends
The flower of Islam
The fruit of Abraham


The thousand stories have
come round to one again
Arabian Night
our gods pursue their fight
What fatal flowers of
darkness spring from
seeds of light


Bird of Paradise - Fly
In white sky
Blues for ALLAH
In'sh'ALLAH


Let's see with our heart
these things our eyes have seen
and know the truth will still lie
somewhere in between


Under eternity
Under eternity
Under eternity
Blue
Bird of Paradise
Fly
In white sky
Under eternity
Blues
for ALLAH
In'sh'ALLAH

That's a good question, but I didn't say "ask me a question."

Yeah, the Broomfield Events Center is my newest front yard venue, about 45 minutes away, I'm a Ned-head. No, I didn't make it as the funds weren't available... I'm not a huge fan of the newer incarnations. It's difficult to hear sometimes, missing the Fat Man as I do. I don't need to hear Bobby butcher Jerry's tunes Smile My funds went to the SCI run next month. I've been a fan of Colorado's homegrown grasstronica since '96, and they are "neighbors" to boot Smile
