The ninth track of the groundbreaking 1970 Grateful Dead album. The haunting five part harmonies in this song caught my ear the first time I heard it, and when I listened to it again, I was grabbed by the riveting lyrics.
This is one of the deeper cuts on the album, and is usually passed over for hit songs such as "Friend of the Devil", "Truckin", or "Sugar Magnolia". It is also one of the slowest songs on the album, with almost a dirge-like tempo. Despite this, it is written with the emotional power that most Dead songs carry, and its location near the end of this album is a nice counterpoint to the other catchy fast songs on the cd.
