Name That Show: 13min 20sec (approx) Eyes of the World Live

This is my FAVORITE Eyes of the World and I don’t know what show it’s from—though I’m thinking it’s from a Dick’s Picks. Anyone out there know which show it is? HELP A DEADHEAD OUT! 🙂

This all started with facebook—AGAIN—as I was hanging out in the “Just Grateful” facebook group and someone asked a simple question “What’s your favorite Dead show?” Of course, I’ve talked about this before, but mine is Fillmore East 2/11/69. Then, I remembered there was a version of Eyes of the World that I especially liked but had the hardest time trying to figure out which one it was. At first, I mistakenly thought it was a 15min long version from Dick’s Picks Volume 10 but no, that version was too fast. But thanks to technology, I at least found the mp3 file BUT I DON’T KNOW THE SHOW.

Right outside this lazy summer home
you don’t have time to call your soul a critic, no
Right outside the lazy gate of winter’s summer home
wondering where the nuthatch winters
Wings a mile long just carried the bird away

Wake up to find out
that you are the eyes of the World
but the heart has its beaches
its homeland and thoughts of its own
Wake now, discover that you
are the song that the morning brings
but the heart has its seasons
its evenings and songs of its own

There comes a redeemer
and he slowly too fades away
There follows a wagon behind him
that’s loaded with clay
and the seeds that were silent
all burst into bloom and decay

The night comes so quiet
and it’s close on the heels of the day

Wake up to find out
that you are the eyes of the world
but the heart has its beaches
its homeland and thoughts of its own
Wake now, discover that you
are the song that the morning brings
but the heart has its seasons
its evenings and songs of its own

Sometimes we live no
particular way but our own

Sometimes we visit your country
and live in your home

Sometimes we ride on your horses
Sometimes we walk alone
Sometimes the songs that we hear
are just songs of our own

Wake up to find out
that you are the eyes of the world
but the heart has its beaches
its homeland and thoughts of its own
Wake now, discover that you
are the song that the morning brings
but the heart has its seasons
its evenings and songs of its own
