Stella Blue (Grateful Dead)


All the years combine
They melt into a dream
A broken angel sings from a guitar.
In the end there's just that song
Comes cryin up the night
Through all the broken dreams and vanished years.

Stella Blue. Stella Blue.

When all the cards are down
There's nothing left to see
There's just the pavement's edge and broken dreams.
In the end there's just that song
Comes cryin like the wind
Down every lonely street that's ever been.

Stella Blue. Stella Blue.

I've stayed in every blue-light cheap hotel
Can't win for tryin
Dust off those rusty strings just one more time
Gonna make em shine.

It all rolls into one
Nothing comes for free
There's nothing you can hold for very long.
And when you hear that song
Come crying like the wind
It seems like all this life was just a dream.

Stella Blue. Stella Blue...
