Brokedown Palace

This song is by Grateful Dead and appears on the album American Beauty (1970).

Fare you well my honey
Fare you well my only true one
All the birds that were singing
Are flown except you alone

Going to leave this brokedown palace
On my hands and my knees I will roll, roll, roll

Make myself a bed by the waterside
In my time, in my time, I will roll, roll, roll

In a bed, in a bed
By the waterside I will lay my head
Listen to the river sing sweet songs
To rock my soul

River going take me, sing me sweet and sleepy
Sing me sweet and sleepy all the way back home

It's a far-gone lullaby sung many years ago
Mama, Mama, many worlds I've come since I first left home

Goin' home, goin' home
By the waterside I will rest my bones
Listen to the river sing sweet songs
To rock my soul

Goin' to plant a weeping willow
On the bank's green edge it will grow, grow, grow
Sing a lullaby beside the water
Lovers come and go, the river roll, roll, roll

Fare you well, fare you well
I love you more than words can tell
Listen to the river sing sweet songs
To rock my soul
