Into the Mystic

Lyrics: Van Morrison
Music: Van Morrison

Sung by Warren Haynes with Phil Lesh & Friends, first on 30 September 2000, and then subsequently with The Dead in 2004. According to Dan Sokulski (who was there) it was soundchecked by the Grateful Dead on 24 June 1995.

We were born before the wind
So much younger than the sun
Ere the bonnie boat was won
As we sailed into the mystic

Hark, now hear the sailors cry
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Let your soul and spirit fly
Into the mystic

And when that fog horn blows
I will be coming home
And when that fog horn blows
I want to hear it
I don't have to fear it

I want to rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
Then magnificently we will float
Into the mystic

And when that fog horn blows
You know I will be coming home
And when that fog horn whistle blows
I got to hear it
I don't have to fear it

I want to rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
And together we will float
Into the mystic

It's too late to stop now
Too late to stop now
Too late to stop now
Too late to stop now
