Twilight

Lyrics: Robbie Robertson
Music: Robbie Robertson

Covered by Jerry Garcia Band a few times in 1991. Originally recorded by The Band

Over by the wildwood, hot summer night
We lay in the tall grass till the morning light
If I had my way I'd never have the urge to roam
A young man serves his country, and an old man guards the home

Don't send me no distant salutations
Or silly souvenirs from far away
Don't leave me alone in the twilight
'Cause twilight is the loneliest time of day

Never gave a second thought, never crossed my mind
What's right and what's not, I ain't the judging kind
I could stand the darkness, storms in the skies
But we all got certain trials burning up inside

Don't put me in a frame upon the mantel
Because memories get dusty, old and grey
Don't leave me alone in the twilight
'Cause twilight is the loneliest time of day

Over by the wildwood, hot summer night
We lay in the tall grass till the morning light
If I had my way I'd never have the urge to roam
A young man serves his country, and an old man guards the home

Don't send me no distant salutations
Or silly souvenirs from far away
Don't leave me alone in the twilight
'Cause twilight is the loneliest time of day

Never gave a second thought, never crossed my mind
What's right and what's not, I ain't the judging kind
I can take the darkness, storms in the skies
But we all got certain trials burning up inside

Don't put me in a frame upon the mantel
Because memories get dusty, old and grey
Don't leave me alone in the twilight
'Cause twilight is the loneliest time of day

Don't leave me alone in the twilight
'Cause twilight is the loneliest time of day
