The World Is A Ghetto

Lyrics: Allen, Brown, Dickerson, Jordan
Music: Allen, Brown, Dickerson, Jordan

Played by the Merl Saunders Band with Jerry Garcia as a guest on 3 October 1978 at the Shady Grove, San Francisco.

Walkin' down the street, smoggy-eyed
Looking at the sky, starry-eyed
Searchin' for the place, weary-eyed
Crying in the night, teary-eyed

Chorus
Don't you know that it's true
That for me and for you
The world is a ghetto
Don't you know that it's true
That for me and for you
The world is a ghetto

Wonder when I'll find paradise
Somewhere there's a home sweet and nice
Wonder if I'll find happiness
Never give it up now I guess

[chorus]

There's no need to search anywhere
Happiness is here, have your share
If you know you're loved, be secure
Paradise is love to be sure

[chorus]
[chorus]
