my way of viewing the sweet jane line from truckin

#115268 2 years, 8 months ago
What in the world ever became of sweet Jane?
She lost her sparkle, you know she isn't the same
Living on reds, vitamin C and cocaine
all a friend can say is "ain't it a shame"


Could this be about Janis? It just hit me a few weeks ago but it would make sense if Robert Hunter wrote this about her.
Hang your heart on laughing willow,
stray down to the water
deep sea of LOVE <3<3<3

I believe they discuss this in one of the several GD books I've read, and I don't remember it being about Janis. Birdsong is a tribute to her by Hunter, though.
