Easy Wind
The Grateful Dead
Words by Robert Hunter
     I been ballin' a shiny black steel jack-hammer
     Been chippin' up rocks for the great highway
     Live five years if I take my time
     Ballin' that jack and a drinkin' my wine.

     I been chippin' them rocks from dawn till doom
     While my rider hide my bottle in the other room
     Doctor say I better stop ballin' that jack
     If I live five years gonna bust my back, yes I will

     Easy wind cross the bayou today
     There's a whole lotta women, mama, 
     Out in red on the streets today.
     And the river keep a talkin'
     But you never hear a word it say

     Gotta find a woman be good to me
     Won't hide my liquor try to serve me tea
     'Cause I'm a stone jack baller and my heart is true
     And I'll give everything that I got to you, yes I will

     Easy wind blowing cross the bayou today
     There's a whole lotta women, mama, 
     Out in red on the streets today
     And the river keep a talkin'
     But you never hear a word it say
