Golden Road

Lyrics: Brian Godchaux
Music: Greg Anton

Sung by Donna Godchaux with the Heart of Gold Band and with Donna Jean and the Tricksters. Also played as an instrumental by Zero. Not to be confused with the Grateful Dead song The Golden Road (To Unlimited Devotion).

I've got love for all
That's what he said
Love for all the living
Love for all the dead
The criminal and the saintly one
The children of the street
The lonely hearted and lost souls
And those knocked off their feet

Now he walks with me
And he talks with me
He is a friend
And he [likes] the end
Down the golden road
Down the golden road

Love one another
Everybody
Everybody
Love one another
Everybody

Love everyone
That's what he said
There is no one among you (note 1)
Will hold my hand or head
I've drawn no line between you
My heart is just a whole
No one who seeks shall be denied
A path down the golden road

Now he walks with me
And he talks with me
He is a friend
And he likes the end
Down the golden road
Down the golden road

Love one another
Everybody
Down the golden road
Love one another
Everybody
Down the golden road
Love one another
Everybody
Down the golden road
Love one another
Everybody
Down the golden road

Love one another
Notes
(1) with Donna Jean and the Tricksters, Donna sings "Love for all the living, love for all the dead" here. But she also adds an additional verse:
I got love for all
That's what he said
And I don't care your color
Or the fantasies in your head
The lamb and the lion
The homeless and the weak
Whatever side of the tracks they were
They all live on my street
