“Blue Mountain” – Bob Weir at the McKittrick Hotel in NYC on August 4, 2016 [YouTube Official Video]

LYRICS

Bob Weir “Blue Mountain” Lyrics

Blue mountain, you’re azure deep
Blue mountain, your sides are steep
Blue mountain with a horse head on your side
You stolen my love to keep
You stolen my love to keep

Well I was born in a manger in Texas
All the pintos and paints come round
My days there were troubled and restless
All the bad news that I looked for, I found

My welcome wore thin down in Texas
For reasons you probably know
Well I roped and I broke and I rambled
To where the sage and the pinon grow

Blue mountain, you’re azure deep
Blue mountain, your sides are steep
Blue mountain with a horse head on your side
You stolen my love to keep
You stolen my love to keep

Here is a snake in the rainbow
And here is the balsom and bow
And here are the ladders of light up to heaven
But blue mountain is all I need now

Oh, what kind of cut purse is the evening
To scatter her diamonds behind
We’re all given a first and a last one
And blue mountain will be both of mine

Blue mountain, you’re azure deep
Blue mountain, your sides are steep
Blue mountain with a horse head on your side
You stolen my love to keep
You stolen my love to keep
