Touch Of Grey


by The Grateful Dead (Jerry Garcia - Robert Hunter)
( A E - - /   / B F# - - /   // (2x) )

It must be getting early, the clocks are running late
Paint by number morning sky, looks so phony
Dawn is breaking everywhere, blow out the candle curse the glare
Draw the curtains, I don't care, 'cause it's all right

B - - - / F# - B - / E - - - / A - E - / F# - - - / - - B - / E - - - /   // (2x)

 C:	I will get by, I will get by, I will get by... I will survive

F# - - - / B - - - / E - - - /   /  x4  / 
F# - - - / B - - - / A - E - / F# - - - // ( A E - - /    / B F# - - /   //)

I see you got your fist out, say your piece and get out
Guess I get the gist of it, but it's all right
Sorry that you feel that way, the only thing there is to say
Every silver lining’s got a touch of grey

 C:	I will get by, I will get by, I will get by... I will survive

 B:	It's a lesson to me, that alphas, the beggars and the seas
The ABC's we all must face, to try to keep a little grace

C#m - - - / C# - - - / F# - - - /    /  x4  / 
G#m - - - / D# - - - / C# - - - / F# - - - / B - - - / E - - - / F# - - - /   //

(Solo)

 B:	It's a lesson to me, the deltas, the eagles and the freeze
The ABC's we all think of, to try to create a little love

I know the rent is in arrears, the dog has not been fed in years
It's even worse than it appears, but it's all right
The cow was given kerosene, he can't read at seventeen
The words he knows are all obscene, but it's all right

 C:	I will get by, I will get by, I will get by... I will survive

The shoe is on the hand it fits, there's really nothing much to it
Whistle through your teeth and spit, 'cause it's all right
Oh well, a touch of grey, kind of suits you anyway
That was all I had to say, it's all right

 C:	I will get by, I will get by, I will get by... I will survive
We will get by, we will get by, we will get by... we will survive... (2x)
