Ripple

The Grateful Dead

If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine 
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung 
Would you hear my voice come through the music 
Would you hold it near as it were your own? 

It’s a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken 
Perhaps they’re better left unsung 
I don’t know, don’t really care 
Let there be songs to fill the air 

Ripple in still water
When there is no pebble tossed
Nor wind to blow

Reach out your hand if your cup be empty 
If your cup is full may it be again 
Let it be known there is a fountain 
That was not made by the hands of men 

There is a road, no simple highway 
Between the dawn and the dark of night 
And if you go no one may follow 
That path is for your steps alone 

Ripple in still water
When there is no pebble tossed
Nor wind to blow

You who choose to lead must follow 
But if you fall you fall alone 
If you should stand then who’s to guide you? 
If I knew the way I would take you home
