Touch Of Grey

In the style of

The Grateful Dead

Lyrics

it 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 fist out
say your peace
and get out
i 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 beggars
and the c's
the a b c's
we all must face
try to keep
a little grey

it's a lesson to me
the deltas
and the east
in the freeze

the a b c's
we all think up
and try to win
a little luck
know the red is
in our ears
the dog has not
been fed in years

it's even worse
than it appears but
it's alright
the cow is givin'
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
nothing much to it
whistle through
your teeth and spit
'cause it's alright

oh well
a touch of grey
kinda suits you
anyway
and 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
