Grateful Dead - I've Been All Round This World lyrics

Up on the Blue Ridge mountain, there I'll take my stand Up on the Blue Ridge mountain, there I'll take my stand A rifle on my shoulder, six-shooter in my hand Lord, Lord, I've been all around this world Lulu, my Lulu, come and open the door Lulu, my Lulu, come and open the door Before I have to walk on in with my old forty-four Lord, I've been all around this world Mama and papa, little sister makes three (note 1) Mama and papa, little sister makes three They're coming in the morning, that's the last you'll see of me Lord, lord, I've been all around this world Hang me, oh hang me, so I'll be dead and gone Hang me, oh hang me, so I'll be dead and gone I wouldn't mind your hanging boys, but you wait in jail so long (note 2) Lord, I've been all around this world Up on the Blue Ridge mountain, there I'll take my stand Up on the Blue Ridge mountain, there I'll take my stand A rifle on my shoulder, six-shooter in my hand Lord, Lord, I've been all around this world Played by Jerry with the Grateful Dead, and with many of his solo partners, including John Kahn, David Grisman and the Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band (1) Jerry sings this verse on the 1970 Bear's Choice version, but not on later versions (2) "... but the waiting takes so long" in some versions
