NIGHT OF A THOUSAND STARS Phil Lesh & Friends Full moon rising over Alcatraz Hangin' there like a big topaz Ruling this night of a thousand stars With a back seat full of broken guitars Raised in chains by Jehosaphat's daughter Served 20 years for walkin' on the water Just out fishin' for love in the rain From an easy chair in the passing lane If I had forgotten, I'd remember well The fruit and the tree from which it fell Many long years rollin' homeward bound Goin' hell-for-leather on this merry go round Night of a thousand stars The sound of sweet guitars On this night - on this night On this night - on this night Of a thousand blazing stars Down in the laundry with my head in my hands Doin' whatever the Lord commands Poppin' the hood off of a Ford V-8 Disguised with an out of state license plate Payin' my taxes in whiskey and blood Mixed in a barrel floating on the flood Doing my penance for a life of crime Singing B minor Masses in double time Tiger and a lion hanging on the wall Between the head of a saint and a bocce ball I've been rebuked and I've been scorned But I can't ever say that I haven't been warned Night of a thousand stars The sound of sweet guitars On this night - on this night On this night - on this night Of a thousand stars I tried to serve you right - I Tried to serve you well - it Looked alright by morning light In hindsight - who can tell? If I could recapture one moment of truth From the firm foundation of a misspent youth I'd fall like rain on this thirsty earth A testament of beauty and worth But if it don't happen because it can't I hope and pray this wish you grant From one man's heart to a falling star We always remember who we are Remember the night of a thousand stars When love swam naked in the reservoir Writing mad sonnets in the midnight park Leaving tracks of tears for her watermark Drums of the jungle on the edge of night Only you could see with your perfect sight If you don't remember you can be excused 'Cause it could never be reproduced Night of a thousand stars The sound of sweet guitars On this night - on this night On this night - on this night On this night - on this night - on this night Of a thousand stars
