Chest Fever

Lyrics: J.R.Roberston
Music: J.R.Roberston

Played by Phil Lesh & Friends in November 2007.

I know she's a tracker, any scarlet could back her
They say she's a chooser, but I just can't refuse her
She was just there, but then she can't be here no more
And as my mind unweaves, I feel the freeze down in my knees
But just before she leaves, she receives

She's been down in the dunes and she's dealt with the goons
She drank from the bitter cup, I tried to get her to give it up
She was just there, I fear she can't be here no more
And as my mind unweaves, I feel the freeze down in my knees
But just before she leaves, she receives

It's long, long, long since she's gone, I get weary holding on
Now I'm slowly fading fast, I don't think I'm gonna last
Very much longer

She's stoned, said the Swede, and the moon calf agreed
I'm like a viper in shock with my eyes in the clock
She was just there, and now says she can't be here no more
And as my mind unweaves, I feel the freeze down in my knees
But just before she leaves, she receives
