New Speedway Boogie   Leave a comment

The virtual snow started blowin’ at WordPress Central a couple of days ago, which means it’s That Time Of The Year. Time to take stock of the most recent year almost gone… This one went by at a pretty heavy clip, mostly due to things tragically stupid / stupidly tragic at The Big U. Thankfully, the work nonsense is tempered by all the good at home. I have the love of a good woman, a couple of cats, and a lot of recently acquired Grateful Dead.

Which serves as a pretty good entre for the next bit. As a way to say, “out with the old, in with the new,” the lyrics from the Grateful Dead song that got me hooked:

Please don’t dominate the rap, Jack
if you got nothing new to say
If you please, don’t back up the track
This train got to run today

Spent a little time on the mountain
Spent a little time on the hill
Heard some say: better run away
Others say: you better stand still

Now I don’t know but I been told
it’s hard to run with the weight of gold
Other hand I heard it said
it’s just as hard with the weight of lead

Who can deny? Who can deny?
It’s not just a change in style
One step done and another begun
In I wonder how many miles?

Spent a little time on the mountain
Spent a little time on the hill
Things went down we don’t understand
but I think in time we will

Now I don’t know but I been told
in the heat of the sun a man died of cold
Do we keep on coming or stand and wait
with the sun so dark and the hour so late?

You can’t overlook the lack, Jack
of any other highway to ride
It’s got no signs or dividing lines
and very few rules to guide

Spent a little time on the mountain
Spent a little time on the hill
I saw things getting out of hand
I guess they always will

I don’t know but I been told
if the horse don’t pull you got to carry the load
I don’t know whose back’s that strong
Maybe find out before too long

One way or another
One way or another
One way or another
this darkness got to give
One way or another
One way or another
One way or another
this darkness got to give
