Please don't dominate the rap, Jack
If you got nothing new to say
If you please, don't back up the track
This train's got to run today

I spent a little time in the mountain
Spent a little time on the hill
I heard some say "better run away"
Others say "better stand still"

Now I don't know but I've been told
It's hard to run with the weight of gold
Other hand I heard it said
It's just as hard with the weight of lead

Who can deny? Who can deny?
It's not just a change in style
One step done and another begun
In I wonder how many miles?

I spent a little time on the mountain
Spent a little time on the hill
Things went down we don't understand
But I think in time we will

Now I don't know but I was told
In the heat of the sun a man died of cold
Do we keep on coming or stand and wait
With the sun so dark and the hour so late?

You can't overlook the lack Jack
Of any other highway to ride
It's got no signs or dividing lines
And very few rules to guide

I spent a little time on the mountain
Spent a little time on the hill
I saw things getting out of hand
I guess they always will

Now, I don't know but I've been told
If the horse don't pull, you got to carry the load
I don't know whose back's that strong
Maybe find out before too long

One way or another
One way or another
One way or another
This darkness got to give
[etc]

As a septagenarian DeadHead, I pretty much apprciate all the modern covers...They also help to intoduce those not old enough to have experianced The Dead IRL to the community.

Not sayin that I dont apprciate hearing Good Ol Grateful Dead, as well!
Sounds like someone stuck a pin in John Mellencamp

"Zoe Jakes began belly dancing in 2000, but is a lifelong dancer, having 10 years of jazz and ballet dance experience under her belt."

If your experience in jazz and ballet dancing goes under your belt, where does your belly dance experience go?



Over your belt (in your belly).
Pales in comparison.
Worst brass section ever!

I once commented on a song that The Grateful Dead are the backbone of Radio Paradise and of course received some nasty comments to follow.  I still stand by my comment.


Yes sir...you did.  And my response wasn't nasty, it was forthright and pointed...and still correct.  
In my opinion, this version is more preachy and less dark/gritty. Not my favorite cover of this song. 
every damn day for weeks? getting way too much play

This song just keeps on giving.
