In My Hour Of Darkness

Lyrics: Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris
Music: Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris

Sung by Grahame Lesh and Elliot Peck with Phil Lesh & Friends..

In my hour of darkness in my time of need
Oh Lord, grant me vision, oh, Lord grant me speed

Once I knew a young man went driving through the night
miles and miles without a word but just his high beam lights
Who'd have ever thought they'd build such a deadly Denver bend
To be so strong, to last so long as it would till the end

In my hour of darkness in my time of need
Oh Lord, grant me vision, oh, Lord grant me speed

Another young man safely, strummed his silver stringed guitar
He played to people everywhere some say he was a star
But he was just a country boy, his simple songs confess
And the music he had in him so very few possess

In my hour of darkness in my time of need
Oh Lord, grant me vision, oh, Lord grant me speed

The there was an old man, kind and wise with age
And he read me just like a book, and he never missed a page
And loved him like a father, and I loved him like my friend
And I knew his time could shortly come but I did not know just when

In my hour of darkness in my time of need
Oh Lord, grant me vision, oh, Lord grant me speed
Oh Lord, grant me vision, oh, Lord grant me speed
