Stella Blue

Music By Jerry Garcia

Released October 1973

All the years combine They melt into a dream A broken angel sings From a guitar In the end there's just a song Comes crying up the night Through all the broken dreams And vanished years Stella Blue Stella Blue When all the cards are down There's nothing left to see There's just the pavement left And broken dreams In the end there's still that song Comes crying like the wind Down every lonely street That's ever been Stella Blue Stella Blue I've stayed in every blue light cheap hotel Can't win for trying Dust off those rusty strings just one more time Gonna make them shine It all rolls into one And nothing comes for free There's nothing you can hold For very long And when you hear that song Come crying like the wind It seems like all this life Was just a dream Stella Blue Stella Blue
