Homeward Through The Haze

Lyrics: David Crosby
Music: David Crosby

Rehearsed by David Crosby with Jerry Garcia and other members of the Grateful Dead in 1975 - though they do not appear on the Crosby & Nash recorded version on "Wind On The Water."

First rain of winter
First fall from grace
It's my first hollow echo
In the halls of praise
How could Samson
I thought he was blind as a bat
How could he have torn down
The temples like that?
And how could little Caesar
How could he know whereof he spoke?
When all of his wheels are turning him into a joke

Chorus
'Cause the blind are leading the blind
And am I amazed at how they stumble
Homeward through the haze

Got the soul of a ragpicker
Got the mind of a slug
I keep sweeping problems
Under my rug
All of my fine
My fine fair weather friends, yeah
Will have no more time
To make their amends

[chorus]
