Brokedown Palace

Lyrics: Robert Hunter

Music: Jerry Garcia

Fare you well, my honey

Fare you well, my only true one

All the birds that were singing

Have flown except you alone

Going to leave this broke-down palace

On my hands and my knees I will roll, roll, roll

Make myself a bed by the waterside

In my time, in my time, I will roll, roll, roll

In a bed, in a bed

By the waterside I will lay my head

Listen to the river sing sweet songs

To rock my soul

River gonna take me, sing me sweet and sleepy

Sing me sweet and sleepy all the way back back home

It's a far gone lullaby sung many years ago

Mama, mama, many worlds I've come since I first left home

Going home, going home

By the waterside I will rest my bones

Listen to the river sing sweet songs

To rock my soul

Going to plant a weeping willow

On the banks green edge it will grow, grow, grow

Sing a lullaby beside the water

Lovers come and go, the river roll, roll, roll

Fare you well, fare you well

I love you more than words can tell

Listen to the river sing sweet songs

To rock my soul
