Walk In The Sunshine

Lyrics: John Barlow
Music: Bob Weir

Recorded on Bob Weir's album "Ace" but never played live. See Bob Weir comments on this song in relation to another song recorded at the same time (but not released) The Dwarf

[spoken:] Look out, 'cause here comes some free advice

Walk in the sunshine
Watch for the bright sign
Be all the things you're able to be
You got to listen to the heavens
You got to try and understand
The greatness of their movement is just the small as it is grand

Try not to hurry
It's just not your worry
Leave it to those all caught up in time
You got to deep six your wrist watch
You got to try and understand
The time it seems to capture is just a movement of its hands

I ain't preaching, 'cause I don't know
How to make fast things move along slow
I can't stop it, I can't make it go
Just 'cause I say it, that don't mean that it's so

'Cause folks always say
Watch what you hear now
Make sure it's clear now
Just 'cause it's said don't mean that its true
You got to make a revolution
You got to help me run my war
You got to tear down all the buildings and rub out all the laws

I ain't burning
Lord, I'm still only learning
How to become a man of my own
I ain't crazy, nor am I lazy
I just want to find out what's right and what's wrong
