Grateful Dead - Black-Throated Wind Lyrics

  • Bringing me down,
  • I'm running aground
  • Blind in the light of the interstate cars.
  • Passing me by,
  • The busses and semis,
  • Plunging like stones from a slingshot on Mars.
  • But I'm here by the road,
  • Bound to the load
  • That I picked up in ten thousand cafes and bars.
  • Alone with the rush of the drivers who won't pick me up,
  • The highway, the moon, the clouds, and the stars.
  • The black-throated wind keeps on pouring in
  • With its words of a life where nothing is new.
  • Ah, Mother American Night, I'm lost from the light.
  • Ohhh, I'm drowning in you.
  • I left St. Louis, the City of Blues,
  • In the midst of a storm I'd rather forget.
  • I tried to pretend it came to an end
  • Cause you weren't the woman I thought I once met.
  • But I can't deny that times have gone by
  • When I never had doubts or thoughts of regret
  • And I was a man when all this began
  • Who wouldn't think twice about being there yet.
  • The black-throated wind keeps on pouring in.
  • And it speaks of a life that passes like dew.
  • It's forced me to see that you've done better by me,
  • Better by me than I've done by you.
  • What's to be found, racing around,
  • You carry your pain wherever you go.
  • Full of the blues and trying to lose
  • You ain't gonna learn what you don't want to know.
  • So I give you my eyes, and all of their lies
  • Please help them to learn as well as to see
  • Capture a glance and make it a dance
  • Of looking at you looking at me.
  • The black-throated wind keeps on pouring in
  • With its words of a lie that could almost be true.
  • Ah, Mother American Night, here comes the light.
  • I'm turning around, that's what I'm gonna do
  • Goin back home that's what I'm gonna do
  • Turnin' around,
  • That's what I'm gonna do
  • 'Cause you've done better by me
  • Than I've done by you. . .
