Songs » N New Speedway Boogie Lyrics By: Robert Hunter Music By: Jerry Garcia Please don't dominate the rap, Jack If you got nothing new to say If you please, don't back up the track This train's got to run today
I spent a little time in the mountain Spent a little time on the hill I heard some say "better run away" Others say "better stand still"
Now I don't know but I've been told It's hard to run with the weight of gold Other hand I heard it said It's just as hard with the weight of lead
Who can deny? Who can deny? It's not just a change in style One step done and another begun In I wonder how many miles?
I spent a little time on the mountain Spent a little time on the hill Things went down we don't understand But I think in time we will
Now I don't know but I was told In the heat of the sun a man died of cold Do we keep on coming or stand and wait With the sun so dark and the hour so late?
You can't overlook the lack Jack Of any other highway to ride It's got no signs or dividing lines And very few rules to guide
I spent a little time on the mountain Spent a little time on the hill I saw things getting out of hand I guess they always will
Now, I don't know but I've been told If the horse don't pull, you got to carry the load I don't know whose back's that strong Maybe find out before too long
One way or another One way or another One way or another This darkness got to give [etc]
