The Center

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Mickey Hart, Steve Kimock

One of the new lyrics written by Robert Hunter for the Rhythm Devils (Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzman).

Just want to tell you, for what it's worth
Centre of the universe, not on this earth
Not in the ocean, not in the sky
Not in the motion of time flowing by
What do you know, what do you know?
What do you know, what do you know?
What do you know, what do you know?
What do you know, what do you know?

Not down in the deep, not up on high
Not when you sleep, and not when you die
Not in the future, not in the past
Not in the first days, and not in the last
What do you know, what do you know?
What do you know, what do you know?
What do you know, what do you know?
What do you know, what do you know?

Just want to tell you, for what it's worth
Centre of the universe is not on this earth
Not in the ocean, not in the sky
Not in the motion of time flowing by
What do you know, what do you know?
What do you know, what do you know?
What do you know, what do you know?
What do you know, what do you know?

Not in the starlight, not in the moon
Not in the daylight of tropical noon
Not in the puppet, not in the strings
It's in the rhythm of all of these things
Not in the puppet, not in the strings
It's in the rhythm of all of these things
Not in the starlight, not in the moon
Not in the daylight of tropical noon
Not in the puppet, not in the strings
It's in the rhythm of all of these things
Not in the ocean, not in the sky
Not in the motion of time flowing by
Not in the puppet, not in the strings
It's in the rhythm of all of these things
What of the future, whatever it brings
Rhythm is the centre of all of these things
