Grateful DeadMississippi Half-Step Toodeloo

On the day that I was born, daddy sat down and cried I had the mark just as plain as day which could not be denied They say that Cain caught Abel rolling loaded dice Ace of spades behind his ear and him not thinking twice Half-step Mississippi Uptown Toodleloo Hello baby, I'm gone, goodbye Half a cup of rock and rye Farewell to you old southern sky I'm on my way, on my way If all you got to live for is what you left behind Get yourself a powder charge and seal that silver mine I lost my boots in transit babe, a pile of smoking leather Nailed a retread to my feet and prayed for better weather Half-step Mississippi Uptown Toodleloo Hello baby, I'm gone, good-bye Half a cup of rock and rye Farewell to you old southern sky I'm on my way, on my way They say that when your ship comes in the first man takes the sails The second takes the after deck, the third the planks and rails What's the point to calling shots this cue ain't straight in line Cue ball's made of Styrofoam and no one's got the time Half-step Mississippi Uptown Toodleloo Hello baby, I'm gone, goodbye Half a cup of rock and rye Farewell to you old southern sky I'm on my way, on my way Across the Rio Grand-eo Across the lazy river Across the Rio Grand-eo Across the lazy river
