Inspiring Enchantment & Illumination with Tarot & Intuitive Guidance

Twenty Years Gone

 Ripple

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jerry Garcia

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 man.

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.

Thank you, Jerry.
Aug. 1, 1942 – Aug. 9, 1995
