#34 (Lyrics)

This song made a brief span of appearances in early 1993. It was inspired by and written for Miguel Valdez, a percussionist who sat in with the band in 1992 and who passed away in early 1993. It was finally released in 1994 on Under the Table and Dreaming (track #34) as an instrumental track. It is also co-written by Haines Fullerton, an early collaborator who took his own life in September 1996. The song made a surprising comeback on 7.9.05 after a few teases earlier in the tour. This is currently the longest comeback in DMB history, at 4491 days between performances, or a little over 12 years.

(Don't) Fear The Reaper (Blue Öyster Cult Cover) (Lyrics)

All our times have come 
Here, but now there, gone 
Seasons don't fear the reaper 
Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain 
(We can be like they are) 

Come on baby 
(Don't fear the reaper) 
Baby take my hand 
(Don't fear the reaper) 
We'll be able to fly 
(Don't fear the reaper) 
Baby I'm your man 

La, la la, la la 
La, la la, la la 

Valentine is done 
Here but now they're gone 
Romeo and Juliet 
Are together in eternity 
(Romeo and Juliet) 

40,000 men and women every day 
(Like Romeo and Juliet) 
40,000 men and women every day 
(Redefine happiness) 
Another 40,000 coming every day 
(We can be like they are) 

Come on baby 
(Don't fear the reaper) 
Baby take my hand 
(Don't fear the reaper) 
We'll be able to fly 
(Don't fear the reaper) 
Baby I'm your man 

La, la la, la la 
La, la la, la la 

Love of two is one 
Here but now they're gone 

Came the last night of sadness 
And it was clear she couldn't go on 
Then the door was open and the wind appeared 
The candles blew and then disappeared 
The curtains flew and then he appeared 
(Saying, "Don't be afraid") 

Come on baby 
(And she had no fear) 
And she ran to him 
(Then they started to fly) 
They looked backward and said goodbye 
(She had become like they are) 
She had taken his hand 
(She had become like they are) 

Come on baby 
(Don't fear the reaper)
