Greatest Story Ever Told (Live at The Warfield Theater, SF, October 9, 1980) lyrics

by

Grateful Dead


[Verse 1]
Moses come riding up on a quasar
His spurs were jingling, the door was ajar
His buckle was silver, his manner was bold
I asked him to come on out of the cold

[Pre-Chorus]
His brain was boiling, his reason was spent
If nothing is borrowed, nothing is lent
I asked him for mercy, he gave me a gun
But then again, these things just got to be done

[Chorus]
Abraham and Isaac sitting on a fence
You'd get right to work if you had any sense
You know the one thing we need is a left-hand monkey wrench

[Instrumental break]

[Verse 2]
Gideon come in with his eyes on the floor
Said, "You ain't got a hinge, you can't closе the door"
Moses stood up, a full six-foot-ten
Said, "You can't closе the door when the wall's caved in"

[Pre-Chorus]
I asked him for water, he poured me some wine
We finished the bottle and broke into mine
You get what you come for, you're ready to go
It's here ten thousand that come for the show

[Chorus]
Abraham and Isaac diggin' on a well
Mama came quick with the water witch spell
Cool clear water well you can't ever tell

[Instrumental break]

[Outro]
Abraham and Isaac sitting on a fence
You'd get right to work if you had any sense
You know the one thing we need is a left-hand monkey wrench
