Got Touch of Grey stuck in my head the other day, but didn't know the lyrics. Remembered this video for my early days. Sadly, it's not great quality, but at least it exists.

Lyrics below...

Touch of Grey (I Will Get By) ~ Grateful Dead

Must be getting early
Clocks are running late
Paint by Number morning sky
Looks so phony

Dawn is breaking everywhere
Light a candle, curse the glare
Draw the curtains I don't care, cause
It's all right

I will get by, I will get by, I will get by, I will survive

I see you've got your list out
Say your piece and get out
Yes I get the gist of it, but
It's all right

Sorry that you feel that way
The only thing there is to say
Every silver lining's got a
Touch of grey

I will get by, I will get by, I will get by, I will survive

It's a lesson to me
The Deltas and the East and the Freeze
The ABC's we all think of
To try to win a little love

I know the rent is in arrears
The dog has not been fed in years
It's even worse than it appears
But it's all right

Cow is giving kerosene
Kid can't read at seventeen
The words he knows are all obscene, but
It's all right

I will get by, I will get by, I will get by, I will survive

The shoe is on the hand it fits
There's really nothing much to it
Whistle through your teeth and spit, 'cause
It's all right

Oh well a touch of grey
Kinda suits you anyway,
That was all I had to say, and
It's all right

I will get by, I will get by, I will get by, I will survive

We will get by, we will get by, we will get by, we will survive.
We will get by, we will get by, we will get by, we will survive.
