Grateful Dead - Scarlet Begonia Lyrics

  • As I was walkin' 'round Grosvenor Square
  • Not a chill to the winter but a nip to the air,
  • From the other direction, she was calling my eye,
  • It could be an illusion, but I might as well try, might as well try.
  • She had rings on her fingers and bells on her shoes.
  • And I knew without askin' she was into the blues.
  • She wore scarlet begonias tucked into her curls,
  • I knew right away she was not like other girls, other girls.
  • In the thick of the evening when the dealing got rough,
  • She was too pat to open and too cool to bluff.
  • As I picked up my matches and was closing the door,
  • I had one of those flashes I'd been there before, been there before.
  • Well, I ain't always right but I've never been wrong.
  • Seldom turns out the way it does in a song.
  • Once in a while you get shown the light
  • In the strangest of places if you look at it right.
  • Well there ain't nothing wrong with the way she moves,
  • Scarlet begonias or a touch of the blues.
  • And there's nothing wrong with the look that's in her eyes,
  • Wind in the willow's playin' "Tea for Two";
  • The sky was yellow and the sun was blue,
  • Strangers stoppin' strangers just to shake their hand,
  • Everybody's playing in the heart of gold band, heart of gold band
