Mission in the Rain (Music Video), Mark Urso (with EZ chords for musicians)

A Cover of a Jerry Garcia song, which should also be familiar to fans of the Grateful Dead. It’s always been one of my favorite Garcia tunes, Mission in the Rain, from 1976’s “Reflections” from the Jerry Garcia Band.

As performed by yours truly …

Here’s the lyrics:

I turn and walk away then I come ’round again
It looks as though tomorrow I’ll do pretty much the same

I must turn down your offer but I’d like to ask a break
You know I’m ready to give everything for anything I take

Someone called my name you know I turned around to see
It was midnight in the mission and the bells were not for me

Come again, walking along in the mission in the rain
Come again, walking along in the mission in the rain

Ten years ago, I walked this street my dreams were riding tall
Tonight I would be thankful Lord, for any dream at all

Some folks would be happy just to have one dream come true
But everything you gather is just more that you can lose!

Come again, walking along in the mission in the rain
Come again, walking along in the mission in the rain

All the things I planned to do I only did half way
Tomorrow will be Sunday born of rainy Saturday

There’s some satisfaction in the San Francisco rain
No matter what comes down the mission always looks the same!

Come again, walking along in the mission in the rain …
