Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jerry Garcia
Recorded on Aoxomoxoa. For a long time it was assumed it had never been been played live. But a tape of a performance on 7 December 1968 has recently come to light.
Boots were of leather, a breath of cologne (note 1)Notes
Her mirror was a window she sat quite alone
All around her the garden grew
Scarlet and purple and crimson and blue
She came and she went and at last went away (note 2)
The garden was sealed when the flowers decayed
On the wall of the garden, a legend did say
"No one may come here, since no one may stay"
