Stoned Faces Don't Lie

Lyrics: Doug Sahm
Music: Doug Sahm

Played by Neal Casal with Phil Lesh and the Terrapin Fanmily Band in 2017.

Stoned faces donít lie, baby when youíre high
Stoned faces donít lie, baby when youíre high

The other day I saw a picture of an old friend of mine
Back I the days when things they were so mellow
It stopped to think as I looked on his face
And I thought about whatís going on today

Stoned faces donít lie, baby when youíre high
Stoned faces donít lie, baby when youíre high

Thinking back to my early days in California
When everybody spent their days in Golden Gate Park
And I look for that smile on my friends today
And I wonder just how it all slipped away

Stoned faces donít lie, baby when youíre high
Stoned faces donít lie, baby when youíre high

Thinking back to the times that I always talk about
Back when things just started to get rolling
A Big Sur mountain top was a place I wanted to be
Where I could figure out all life's mysteries

Stoned faces donít lie, baby when youíre high
Stoned faces donít lie, baby when youíre high
Stoned faces donít lie, baby when youíre high
Stoned faces donít lie, baby when youíre high
