Top Ten Grateful Dead songs from the pen of Robert Hunter

10. Jack Straw
We can share the woman/ We can share the wine
We can share what we got of yours/ ‘Cause we done shared all of mine

9. Stella Blue
It all rolls into one/ and nothing comes for free
There’s nothing you can hold/ for very long

8. Scarlet Begonias
Once in a while you get shown the light
in the strangest of places if you look at it right

7.Crazy Fingers
Your rain falls like crazy fingers
Peals of fragile thunder keeping time

6.Saint Stephen
Talk about your plenty, talk about your ills
One man gathers what another man spills

5.Help on the Way
Paradise waits
on the crest of a wave/ her angels in flame

4.Mississippi Half Step
They say that Cain caught Abel/ rolling loaded dice
Ace of spades behind his ear/ and him not thinking twice

3.Friend of the Devil
Got a wife in Chino, babe/ And one in Cherokee
First one say she’s got my child/ But it don’t look like me

There is a road/ no simple highway / Between the dawn and dark of night
And if you go/ no one may follow / That path is for your steps alone

1.Terrapin Station
The storyteller makes no choice/ soon you will not here his voice
his job is to shed light/ and not to master
