Rich(bodhránai gan ciall) Lyr/Tune Req: I Know You Rider (24) RE: Lyr/Tune Req: I Know You Rider 05 May 03

Dead's version:

I know you rider gonna miss me when I'm gone (2x)
Gonna miss your baby from rollin' in your arms

Laid down last night, Lord I could not take my rest(2x)
My mind was wand'ring* , like th wild geese in the west.

Well the sun gonna shine in my back door some day(2x)
March winds are gonna blow all my troubles away

I wish I was a headlight on a Northbound train ** (2x)
I'd shine my light through the cool Colorado rain

*** I'd rather drink muddy water, sleep in a hollow log(2x)
Than stay here in Frisco, be treated like a dog
(repeat first verse)

* sometimes sung as My mind was hunted/haunted...

** Some fans would sing this as "I wish I were the headlice on a tour-bound dread.

*** The "rather drink muddy water verse was sometimes sung during shows in the late 60's and early 70's and disappeared shortly after Rider became the closing of China Cat Sunflower and ceased to be it's own song. I don't know if the Muddy Water reference had anything to do with the singer of the same name.
