Rob Being a Deadhead, I was intrigued that this song was co-written with Robert Hunter (writer of the "Jerry" songs, and even some Bob Weir ones) and members of the Dead (Jerry, Bob and Brent) contributed vocals. The lyrics are very Hunter-esque; the whole song is like a series of punchlines. (I think it's)the last verse's last lyrics which are most appropriate here now: Pay for your ticket and don't complain! Nov 21, 2014
