Good Shepherd

Lyrics: Traditional
Music: Traditional, arr Kaukonen

Performed by Jorma with Phil Lesh & Friends, and once also with Bob Weir in Ratdog.

If you want to get to heaven
Over on the other shore
Stay out of the way of the long-tongue liar
Oh good shepherd
Feed my sheep

Chorus
One for Paul
One for Silas
One for to make my heart rejoice
Can't you hear my lambs a-calling
Oh good shepherd
Feed my sheep

If you want to get to heaven
Over on the other shore
Stay out of the way of the blood-stained bandit
Oh good shepherd
Feed my sheep

[chorus]

If you want to get to heaven
Over on the other shore
Stay out of the way of the gun shot devil
Oh good shepherd
Feed my sheep

[chorus]
