The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game

Lyrics: Robinson
Music: Robinson

Recorded by Jerry on "Compliments Of Garcia" and played a few times live with Merle Saunders in both "Legion Of Mary" and "Reconstruction" as well as with the Jerry Garcia Band.

The title of the song on the album is given as "When The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game", but it appears the proper title is just "The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game." (1)

Everyday things change
And the world puts on a new face
Certain things re-arrange
And this old world seems like a new place

Secretly I've been trailing you
Like the fox that preys on the rabbit
I had to get you and so I knew
I had to learn your ways and habits

Ooh, you were the catch that I was after
But I looked up and I was in your arms
And I, I had been captured

What's this old world coming to
Things just ain't the same
Any time the hunter gets captured by the game

I had laid such a tender trap
Hoping that you might fall into it
Your love hit me like a sudden snap
One kiss and then I knew it

Ooh, my plan didnt work out
Like I thought
'Cause Id laid my trap for you
But it seems that I got caught

What's this old world coming to
Things just ain't the same
Any time the hunter gets captured by the game
