Ticket To Nowhere

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Mickey Hart, Ben Yonas, Crystal Monee Hall, Tim Hockenerry, Zakir Hussain

Played by Mickey Hart with the Rhythm Devils and in a very different version by the Mickey Hart Band in 2011.

Nowhere to nowhere to nowhere
Ticket to nowhere to nowhere to nowhere
Ticket to nowhere to nowhere to nowhere
Ticket to nowhere to nowhere to nowhere

I got a ticket, a ticket to nowhere
A ticket to nowhere at all
And when I get there, it's a beautiful nowhere
I'm gonna give you a call
Person to person, from nowhere to nowhere
From no-one to no-one at all
I got a ticket, a ticket to nowhere
A ticket to nowhere at all
A ticket to nowhere
A ticket to nowhere
A ticket to nowhere
A ticket to nowhere

I won't take no steamboat, I won't take no plane
I'd tell you what I'd take but it's hard to explain
I won't sail on the water, I won't fly through the air
I won't rise down the highway, the wind will not blow through my hair
A ticket to nowhere
A ticket to nowhere
A ticket to nowhere
A ticket to nowhere

Don't forget to ask, no-one will remind you
Don't forget to ask, no-one will deny you
I look at my watch and it says twelve o'clock
It's right twice a day ever since it's been stopped
A ticket to nowhere
Nowhere
Nowhere
Nowhere

I got a ticket, that's written on air
Entitles me to go anywhere
A ticket on air
Entitles me to go anywhere
Oh tell me where
A ticket to nowhere to nowhere to nowhere
A ticket to nowhere to nowhere to nowhere
A ticket to nowhere to nowhere to nowhere
A ticket to nowhere to nowhere to nowhere
A ticket to nowhere
Nowhere
Nowhere
Nowhere
This is the very different 2011 version performed by the Mickey Hart Band, often listed in setlists as "Slow Train"
Slow train, stop frame
Slow train, stop frame
Rest for a while, back in the game, rest for a while
Rest for a while, back in the game, rest for a while
Rest for a while, back in the game, rest for a while
Rest for a while, back in the game, rest for a while
Ticket to nowhere
Nowhere
Ticket to nowhere
Nowhere

I don't know what train I'm on
I don't know what train I'm on
I don't know what train I'm on
I don't know what train I'm on
I want to go where
Go where
I want to go where
Go where

I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
MBR> Slow train, stop frame
Slow train, stop frame
Rest for a while, back in the game, rest for a while
Rest for a while, back in the game, rest for a while
Rest for a while, back in the game, rest for a while
Rest for a while, back in the game, rest for a while
Ticket to nowhere
Nowhere
Ticket to nowhere
Nowhere

I don't know what train I'm on
I don't know what train I'm on
I don't know what train I'm on
I don't know what train I'm on
I don't know what train I'm on
I want to go where
Go where
I want to go where
Go where
You are, you are
