'Twas the night before Christmas, ?we all sat having dinner,
Duke University 78' is a definite winner;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, ?
In hopes ?that? China/Rider soon would be there;
?When in Buffalo 89' there arose such a clatter,
Estimated Prophet starts playing and nothings a matter?.
Close up on the rail – ?a spot not to lose,
Casey Jones keeps on Truckin' to daddy's Deep Elem Blues. ?
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen Rain and Snow?,
This Morning Dew from Augusta warms us up with a glow.
When, Me and My Uncle – so lively and merry,
Disovered "Accidentally Like A Martyr" – some beautiful rare Jerry.
The Warlocks, The Grateful Dead, & now Dead & Co,
Weir everywhere you know, on the bus we shall go.
We pulse and we throb to bass we can feel,
Our bodies in motion to this Eyes of the World from Oteil.
Dead & Company provides us with good times aplenty,
Help/Slip/Franklin's just perfect from the hands of Chimenti.
We finished summer tour at Shoreline Standing On The Moon,
In 2017 we'll see you again real soon.
