Eugene!

#48981 2 years, 11 months ago
I am Sofa King excited about these three shows I just can't bear it! I got on the bus in Euegene many years ago. It feels like coming home...it feels like the wheel is turning...it feels like I'm 18 again!

Safe travels! you will love it over here, I promise! Maybe we'll bump into eachother....I'll be good to see some family I haven't seen in a while.

Here is some road trip inspiration for ya':

Goin' Down To Eugene
Jim Page

the car's gassed up and I'm ready to roll
I got one eye open for the highway patrol
I got the other eye open for the freeway sign
300 miles and I'm makin' good time
my stomach's growlin' but my head's been fed
I'm goin' down to Eugene to see the Grateful Dead

tape deck's blowin' out a rattlin' sound
in a sympathetic rhythm to the wheel-go-round
sports cars eat me up half-alive
this thing don't do more than 55
but I can sleep in the back, it's a roadside bed
I'm goin' down to Eugene to see the Grateful Dead

everybody needs a little break sometimes
life gets too precise
put a little twist in the old straight line
and take some strange advise

rollin' into town I'm all eyes and ears
look at all those people I ain't seen in years
tripped out hipsters, rag and bone
young neophitic tie dye, cellular telephone
Sister Salina and her Uncle Fred
they're goin' down to Eugene to see the Grateful Dead

there's 40 thousand people in a great big bowl
they're all rockin' to the rhythm of the roll
some are fallin' in love, some are countin' their money
some are spinnin' in circles till their eyes get funny
ain't it just about the way they said
I'm goin' down to Eugene to see the Grateful Dead

goin' into the parkin' lot I might get lost
best place in the world to get your wires crossed
reality shatters when you leap and shout
some people go in and they never come out
ain't never been the same since my senses fled
goin' down to Eugene to see the Grateful Dead

everybody needs a little break sometimes
life gets too precise
put a little twist in the old straight line
and take some strange advise

now you can take my work week and throw it away
I'll put a penny in a parkin' meter any day
hang out the phone bill and let it fade
landlord's gonna have to wait to get paid
I ain't got no use for your overhead
I'm goin' down to Eugene to see the Grateful Dead
my stomach's growlin' but my head's been fed
I'm goin' down to Eugene to see the Grateful Dead

I was stalked by a cougar at those hot springs. I can't believe she didnt eat me . What a nice spring. I'm not going to the Eugene shows , but i used to live there and am excited for everyone. Besides the cops who act like the colombian army fighting jungle gorillas, it's an awesome city. Way kinder than my home venue the Mann music center. Jim morrison said alot of off the wall crap.. about lizards and he went down the hall. but the west really is the best. he nailed that one on head.
