Mine's, "even a blind man knows when the sun does shine"

We've got a show coming up where I'll be singing this and figured that if I take a poll here and use the suggestions it'll kinda be like taking y'all with me!

Let me know!

"top of the mountain you can see far and wide..."

oh wait, that's SOC. Nevermind. My bad.

Yeah, I'll go with "you may be weak, you may be blind, but even a blind man knows when the sun ish shining"

"Even a blind man knows when the sun is shining" doesn't mean anything until he hits the next line.

"He can feel it" -- that's what makes it great.

in the early 70s and he said the Dead did a great loooong jam version of Good Lovin at the end of the Sprint term in the old football stadium, maybe 71 or 72...?

he was sitting on the stage and though it wasnt the best concert he ever saw (he saw a LOT) he did say the Good Lovin was really cool and had a very loooong jam.

and he did say Pigpen was in kind of a trance, LOL

Pig @ Princeton '71.

Sold! The Brooklyn Bridge!


Sorry... Bobby raps just didn't/don't do it for me. Then again, you probably don't want to go on for 20 minutes either, so I'd stick with the blind man.

Listen to 9/2/78 for the absolute dumbest Bobby rap ever. Donna doesn't help matters either.
