How has no one commented on this show? This version of Eyes ties for first with 7-8-78 for me. Check it out! And prepare to be awed with the glory of the solo after the 2nd chorus.

Deal has a 34 cycle final refrain
Thats no "waits", just donts in a row.
"Don't you let that deal go down."

Love a second set Stagger Lee. Always makes me think what a total badass Delia DeLyon was. The local lawman wasn't man enough to go after her husband's killer so she tracked him down, seduced him, shot him in the balls and had him dragged to City Hall for the hanging. Lots of badass women in Grateful Dead lore.
The unnamed woman who called herself 'Jackaroe' dressed as a man to enlist in the military and be shipped off to war where she not only found but rescued her love.
Delilah Jones (BE Women) raised eight boys (wasn't her fault one turned bad) in a tumbled down shack in Bigfoot County during the Depression in winter where it snowed so hard the roof caved in.
Delilah the original. From the Bible. She went toe to toe with the strongest man that ever lived on Earth.
Mama (Mama Tried) Widow who worked hours without rest so her kids would have the best. She tried her best, also wasn't her fault one wound up in prison doing life without parole.
