This is the first blog-post here on a Sunday. Peak Stupidity is only breaking our rule in order to keep another tradition up, which is the posting of The Dead's US Blues every Independence Day, with a few lyrics. Son of a gun, when I looked back I see every one of the previous 4 posts has a youtube video that has since gone missing!
Well, that there's a good reason to put it up too. Any non-DeadHeads should also please note that, though you may think of them as counter traditional American culture and a bunch of druggies, this band was truly an All American band. That goes for the music AND the players - Jerry, Bobby, Phil, Mickey, Billy, and Brent, all of them.
Stays seventy-two come shine or rain.
Wave the flag, pop the bag,
Rock the boat, skin the goat.
Wave that flag, wave it wide and high.
Summertime done come and gone, my, oh, my.
Happy Independence Day, or what's left of it (the day and our independence).
