Grateful Dead - Reuben & Cherise Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Cherise was brushing her long hair gently down
  • It was the afternoon of carnival as she brushes it gently down
  • Rubin was strumming his painted mandolin
  • It was inlaid with a pretty face in jade played in the carnival parade
  • Cherise was dressing as Pirouette in white
  • When a fatal vision gripped her tight Cherise beware tonight
  • Rubin, Rubin tell me truly true
  • I feel afraid and I don't know why I do, Is there another girl for you?
  • If you could see my heart you would know it's true
  • There's none Cherise, except for you, except for you
  • I'd swear to it on my very soul, If I lie, say I fall down cold
  • When Rubin played on his painted mandolin
  • The breeze would pause to listen in before going on its way again
  • Masquerade began when nightfall finally woke
  • Like waves against the bandstand, dancers broke to the painted mandolin
  • Looking out to the crowd who is standing there
  • Sweet Ruby Claire at Rubin stared, at Rubin stared
  • She was dressed as Pirouette in red
  • And her hair hung gently down
  • The crowd pressed round, Ruby stood as though alone
  • Rubin's song took on a different tone and he played it just for her
  • The song he played was the carnival parade
  • Each note cut a thread of Cherise's fate it cut through like a blade
  • Rubin was playing his painted mandolin
  • When Ruby froze and turned to stone for the strings played all alone
  • The voice of Cherise from the face of the mandolin
  • Singing Rubin, Rubin tell me true for I have no one but you
  • If you could see my heart you would know it true
  • There's none Cherise, except for you, except for you
  • I'd swear to it on my very soul, If I lie, say I fall down cold
  • The truth of love an unsung song must tell
  • The course of love must follow blind without a look behind
  • Rubin walked the streets of New Orleans till dawn
  • Cherise so lightly in his arms and her hair hung gently down
