Grateful Dead Touch Of Grey Lyrics

Last updated: 02/15/2014 08:49:02 AM

Must be getting early; clocks are running late.
Paint-by-number morning sky looks so phony.
Dawn is breaking everywhere; light a candle, curse the glare.
Draw the curtains; I don't care, 'cause it's alright
I will get by, I will get by, I will get by, I will survive.

I see you've got your list out, say your piece and get out.
Guess I get the gist of it but it's alright
Sorry that you feel that way; the only thing there is to say,
Every silver lining's got a touch of grey.
I will get by, I will get by, I will get by, I will survive.

It's a lesson to me, the Ables and the Bakers and the C’S
The A-B-C's we all must face, try to keep a little grace.

It's a lesson to me, the Deltas and the East and the Freeze.
The A-B-C's we all think of, try to give a little love.

I know the rent is in arrears, the dog has not been fed in years,
It's even worse than it appears, but it's alright.
The cow is giving kerosene, kid can't read at seventeen,
The words he knows are all obscene, but it's alright
I will get by, I will get by, I will get by, I will survive.

The shoe is on the hand it fits; there's really nothin' much to it.
Whistle through your teeth and spit 'cause it's alright
Oh well, a touch of grey, kind of suits you anyway,
That was all I had to say, and it's alright
I will get by, I will get by, I will get by, I will survive.
We will get by, we will get by, we will get by, we will survive.
We will get by, we will get by, we will get by, we will survive.
