Broken Arrow

Lyrics: Robbie Robertson
Music: Robbie Robertson

Sung by Phil Lesh with the Grateful Dead, The Other Ones, Phil & Friends and The Dead.

Chorus
Who else is gonna bring you a broken arrow
Who else is gonna bring you a bottle of rain
There he goes, moving across the water
There he goes, turning my whole world around.

Do you feel what I feel
Can we make that so it's part of the deal
I gotta hold you in these arms of steel
Lay your heart on the line ... this time.

I wanna breathe when you breathe
When you whisper like that hot summer breeze
Count the beads of sweat that cover me
Didn't you show me a sign, this time.

[chorus]

Can you see what I see
Can you cut behind the mystery
I will meet you by the witness tree
Leave the whole world behind.

I want to come when you call
I'll get to you if I have to crawl
They can't hold me with these iron walls
We've got mountains to climb.

[chorus]
