Golden Days

Lyrics: Vince Welnick
Music: Vince Welnick

A tribute to Jerry Garcia that Vince Welnick sung with Missing Man Formation, Phil & Friends and other bands.

It's four am, I wake up
The sheets they're dripping wet
It's the same every morning
Since the day they found you dead
I wish that I had told you
All the things that I want to now
Would it have made any difference?
Now I'll always be in doubt

In the end I think again
We told jokes and played
I can say I knew you when
These were some golden days
(These were some golden days)

It seemed like only just last summer
When the riots were going down
Now the shadows are getting longer
All the leaves they're turning brown
Who decides the moment when the seasons change
Here and now I hope for some happiness again

Then again I think again
We told jokes and played
I can say I knew you when
These were some golden days
(These were some golden days)

There's music in the distance
I can't help but feel alive
In my heart I still see you
The colonel at your side
Had I known you were leavin'
I wouldn't let you get away
But it only stands to reason
Every set must end some day

In the end I'll think again
We told jokes and played
I'll say I knew you when
These were some golden days
(These were some golden days)

These were some golden days
(Some golden days)
These were some golden days
(Some golden days)
These were some golden days
(Some golden days)
These were some golden days
(Some golden days)
