Galilee

Lyrics: Grahame Lesh
Music: Grahame Lesh

Sung by Grahame Lesh with Phil Lesh and the Terrapin Family Band in July 2017.

Old man's daughter, all alone, sitting by the banks of the river
Old man's son going down the road, singing the song of the drifter
And in the blink of an eye she's gone, never seen again
In the shadow of the stars you can find him singing
Hello, my old friend

Think I'll go home tonight
Listen to the birds and unwind
Sing you a song of roses while you sleep
I think I'll try again
And maybe just around the next bend
It isn't all that lonely by the sea
And you can find us down in Galilee

Sweet Melinda, if you please, meet me in the willow garden
There's nothing here for you to see, tangled in the green and the [harvest]
The morning came, the war was over, put on his hat and died
When all the locks were broken she had nowhere, nowhere to hide

Think I'll go home tonight
Listen to the birds and unwind
Sing you a song of roses while you sleep
I think I'll try again
And maybe just around the next bend
It isn't all that lonely by the sea
And you can find us down in Galilee

Think I'll go home tonight
Listen to the birds and unwind
Sing you a song of roses while you sleep
I think I'll try again
And maybe just around the next bend
It isn't all that lonely by the sea
And you can find us down in Galilee
