“Yesterday’s Dead Today”, Monday, December 20th, 7-9pm Eastern

Written by on Sunday, December 19, 2021

“O come, all ye Grateful Deadheads to the concert
O come, Grateful Deadheads and camp in the street
Bring rolling papers, don’t forget your sleeping bags
O come get us some floor seats, we’ve followed them for four weeks
O come get us some floor seats to see the Lord
O come, all ye hippies, throwbacks to the Sixties
Paint flowers on your van, and don’t wash your feet
Wear your bell-bottoms, and your tie-dye t-shirts
O come let us adore them, we’ve quit our day jobs for them
O come let us adore, them Garcia’s the Lord”
