Brokedown Palace

by Robert Hunter and Jerry Garcia

 

Fare you well, my honey

Fare you well my only true one

All the birds that were singing

Are flown, except you alone

Goin' to leave this brokedown palace

On my hands and my knees I will roll, roll, roll

Make myself a bed by the waterside

In my time, in my time I will roll, roll, roll

In a bed, in a bed

By the waterside I will lay my head

Listen to the river sing sweet songs

To rock my soul

River goin' to take me, sing me sweet and sleepy

Sing me sweet and sleepy all the way back home

It's a far gone lullaby, sung many years ago

Mama, mama many worlds I've come since I first left home

 

Goin' home, goin' home

By the waterside I will lay my bones

Listen to the river sing sweet songs

To rock my soul

 

Going to plant a weepin' willow

On the bank's green edge it will grow, grow, grow

Sings a lullaby beside the water

Lovers come and go, the river roll, roll, roll

 

Fare you well, fare you well

I love you more than words can tell

Listen to the river sing sweet songs

To rock my soul

 

Doo doo doo...
