Grateful Dead - Salt Lake City lyrics

It was a paradise for lizards when young Brigham saw it first He said "I've seen some nasty deserts, lord, but this one here's the worst" Then the lord called down to Brigham, said "I got a great idea -- I want a mighty city and I think I want it here" Salt Lake City that town of righteousness and fame Salt Lake City don't sound like much but hell, what's in a name Nobody ever sings about it But lord I be goin' there just the same Salt Lake City where it's so easy keepin' straight Salt Lake City just really makes Des Moines look second-rate Ain't makin' no big deal about it But I hear the Mormon girls are really great Salt Lake City hey dig that Tabernacle choir Salt Lake City yea they be bound to take you higher There just ain't no two ways about it Yes lord, they really light fire Well, Brigham kicked a prairie dog and muttered in his beard Said "you've put me through some changes, lord, but this one's really weird The lord just laughed at Brigham, said "you'd better get to work -- The next time I check in here, I want paradise on earth Salt Lake City where Brigham made the desert bloom Salt Lake City put a color TV in every room And they got them crazy Mormon chicks Yes I'll be goin' there real soon Salt Lake City hey feel that magic in the air ...
