Stella Blue

Verse 1
All the years combine
They melt into a dream
A broken angel sings
from a guitar
In the end there's just a song
Comes crying like the wind
Through all the broken dreams
and vanished years

chorus:
Stella Blue

Verse 2
When all the cards are down
There's nothing left to see
There's just the pavement left and broken dreams
In the end there's still that song Comes crying like the wind
Down every lonely street that's ever been

chorus:
Stella Blue

bridge:
I've stayed in every blue-light cheap hotel
Can't win for trying
Dust off those rusty strings just one more time
Gonna make 'em shine

Verse 3
It all rolls into one
And nothing comes for free
There's nothing you can hold for very long
And when you hear that song
Come crying like the wind
Seems like all this life
Was just a dream

chorus:
Stella Blue


Garcia/Hunter, written at the Chealsea Hotel, NYC, 1970.
>From the album After the Flood, 1973

About the artist behind Stella Blue Chords:

The Grateful Dead was an American rock band formed in 1965 in the San Francisco Bay Area.[1] The band was known for its unique and eclectic style, which fused elements of rock, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, country, jazz, psychedelia, space rock[2][3] and gospel—and for live performances of long musical improvisation.[1][4] "Their music," writes Lenny Kaye, "touches on ground that most other groups don't even know exists."[5]

The Grateful Dead's fans, some of whom followed the band from concert to concert for years, are known as Deadheads and have been renowned for their dedication to the band's music.[1][4] Many fans referred to the band simply as "the Dead". As of 2003, the remaining band members who had been touring under the name "The Other Ones" changed their official group name to "The Dead". Deadheads continue to use the nickname to refer to all versions of the band.[6]

Their musical influences varied widely; in concert recordings or on record albums one can hear psychedelic rock (in the late sixties), the blues, rock nuggets, country-western, bluegrass, country-rock, and although they rarely played jazz music, the band certainly borrowed for their music the kind of long improvisatory sequences that jazz artists such as Charles Mingus and John Coltrane perfected in the 1950s and 1960s. These various influences were distilled into a diverse and psychedelic whole that made the Grateful Dead "the pioneering Godfathers of the jam band world."[7]
