I's just a little Deadhead Fallen daughter on a scholarship Well I got tired and let my average slip Then I's a farmer in the Pogonip Where the weed that I recall Was like a wrecking ball I met a lovesick daughter of the San Joaquin She showed me colors I'd never seen Drank the bottom out of my canteen Then left me in the fall Like a wrecking ball Standin' there in the autumn mist Jack and Coke at the end-of-my-wrist Yes I remember when first we kissed Though it was nothing at all Like a wrecking ball Hey boys, little Deadhead Who is watching? Who is watching? I's just a little Deadhead Too much trouble for me to shake Oh, the weather and the blindin' ache Was riding high till the '89 quake Hit the Santa Cruz Garden Mall Like a wrecking ball
