“Morning Dew” – Grateful Dead at Cornell University on May 8, 1977 (Bonnie Dobson Cover) [SoundCloud Audio Single]

LYRICS

Bonnie Dobson “Morning Dew” Lyrics

Walk me out in the morning dew my honey
Walk me out in the morning dew today
I can’t walk you out in the morning dew my honey
I can’t walk you out in the morning dew today

I thought I heard a baby cry this morning
I thought I heard a baby cry this today
You didn’t hear no baby cry this morning
You didn’t hear no baby cry today

Where have all the people gone my honey
Where have all the people gone today
There’s no need for you to be worrying about all those people
You never see those people anyway

I thought I heard a young man mourn this morning
I thought I heard a young man mourn today
I thought I heard a young man mourn this morning
I can’t walk you out in the morning dew today

Walk me out in the morning dew my honey
Walk me out in the morning dew today
I’ll walk you out in the morning dew my honey
I guess it doesn’t really matter anyway

I guess it doesn’t matter anyway
I guess it doesn’t matter anyway
Guess it doesn’t matter anyway

On May 5, 2017, the Grateful Dead will release an 11 CD collection titled Get Shown The Light through Rhino Records. The package will contain four complete shows from the band’s Terrapin Station Tour in May of 1977 (5/5/77, 5/7/77, 5/8/77, and 5/9/77).

Above, you can stream a jammed-out version of “Morning Dew” from what some say is the “holy grail” of Grateful Dead shows – Cornell University’s Barton Hall on May 8, 1977. You may hear a few flubbed notes, but the emotional performance shows the band firing on all cylinders.

Pick up Get Shown The Light at the Grateful Dead official website. The 15,000 limited edition package will also contain artwork by Masaki Koike, a book by Peter Conners, and an essay by Nicholas Meriwether.

In related news, the Dead are also planning on releasing a 5-LP vinyl set and 3-CD set of the Cornell 5/8/77 concert.
