Grateful DeadStanding On The Moon

Standing on the moon I got no cobweb on my shoe Standing on the moon Im feeling so alone and blue I see the gulf of mexico As tiny as a tear The coast of california Must be somewhere over here - over here Standing on the moon I see the battle rage below Standing on the moon I see the soldiers come and go Theres a metal flag beside me Someone planted long ago Old glory standing stiffly Crimson, white and indigo - indigo I see all of southeast asia I can see el salvador I hear the cries of children And the other songs of war Its like a mighty melody That rings down from the sky Standing here upon the moon I watch it all roll by - all roll by Standing on the moon With nothing else to do A lovely view of heaven But Id rather be with you Standing on the moon I see a shadow on the sun Standing on the moon The stars go fading one by one I hear a cry of victory And another of defeat A scrap of age old lullaby Down some forgotten street Standing on the moon Where talk is cheap and vision true Standing on the moon But I would rather be with you Somewhere in san francisco On a back porch in july Just looking up to heaven At this crescent in the sky Standing on the moon With nothing left to do A lovely view of heaven But Id rather be with you - be with you
