Best of The Other One

STANDARD DISCLAIMER:


The Best Versions Project differs from the lists in the Grateful Dead Taper's Compendium in what Ribot_for_President calls good taste and common sense. This project isn't necessarily definitive, and its not an invitation to debate. Its a list of solid versions that you all ought to hear. For more information about the processes used to create these lists, please check the, About the Projects section on the home page.

And now...

The Other One:

Lyrics: Bob Weir
Music: Bob Weir/Bill Kreutzmann

Spanish lady come to me, she lays on me this rose
It rainbow spirals round and round, it trembles and explodes
It left a smoking crater of my mind I like to blow away
But the heat came round and busted me for smiling on a cloudy day

(chorus)
Coming, coming, coming around
Coming around, coming around, in a circle
Coming, coming, coming around
Coming around, coming around, in a circle

Escaping through the lily fields, I came across an empty space
It trembled and exploded, left a bus stop in its place
The bus came by and I got on, that's when it all began
There was Cowboy Neal at the wheel of the bus to never ever land

(chorus)

Lyric Variations
10/22/67
When I woke up this morning, my head was not intact
I asked my friends about it, try to find out where it's at
A wind came up inside of me, blew the dust clouds all away
The heat came round and busted me for smiling on a cloudy day

Well the heat down in jail, they weren't very smart
They taught me how to read and write, they taught me the precious art
Of breaking out of jail, well I learned that right away
Well they didn't need me to telling them 'bout smiling first then running away

11/10/67
I woke up this morning my head was not in sight
I would ask the walls about it, but they vanished overnight
I could not think or spell my name, or fly their words away
And the heat came round and busted me for smiling on a cloudy day

Escaping through the lily fields, when I came across an empty space
It quivered and exploded, left a bus stop in its place
Well a bus came by and I got on, that's when it all began
There was Cowboy Neal at the wheel of a bus to never ever land

11/11/67
Well I woke up this morning, with the sky in sight
I would ask the walls about it, but they vanished overnight
I could not think to spell my name, I find there was no way
The heat came round and busted me for smiling on a cloudy day

I was dancing through the lily fields, when I came across an empty space
Quivered and exploded, left a bus stop in its place
A bus came by and I got on, thats when it all began
There was Cowboy Neal, at the wheel, of a bus to never-ever land

1/22/68
I woke up this morning, my head was not in sight
I would ask the walls about it, but they vanished overnight
I could not think or spell my name, or fly there was no way
And the heat came round and busted me for smiling on a cloudy day

I was skipping through the lily fields, when I came across an empty space
It quivered and exploded, left a bus stop in its place
The bus came by and I got on, that's when it all began
There was Cowboy Neal at the wheel of a bus to never-ever land

2/3/68
A Spanish lady comes to me, she lays on me this rose
It rainbows, spirals round and round, it trembles and explodes
It left my mind, crater of a mind..., what the hey (note 4)
And the heat came round and busted me for smiling on a cloudy day

I was skipping through the lily fields, when I came across an empty space
It quivered and exploded, left a bus stop in its place
The bus came by and I got on, thats when it all began
There was Cowboy Neal, at the wheel, of a bus to never-ever land
