Ailsa’s Travel Theme: Roads

penguin2All roads eventually lead home, where you’ll hopefully be as snug and content as this penguin in his cozy cove at the San Francisco Zoo.

“So many roads I tell you,
New York to San Francisco,
So many roads I know.
All I want is one to take me home,
From the high road to the low,
So many roads …”

Grateful Dead, “So Many Roads”

  1. Your blog just reminded me of a classic Bugs Bunny episode… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vwsEXWjYhs

  2. Which album is that Grateful Dead song from, Mr. Penguin? I thought I knew most of them, but I don’t recognize that lyric….

    • Hi Victoria! Like many Grateful Dead songs, “So Many Roads” was never released on any official Grateful Dead album. It was a new Garcia song that the Dead had been performing in their final years, usually as an encore. A live version is available on the “So Many Roads” compilation of rarities and outtakes the Dead put out in 1999. Ironically, that version was recorded in Chicago on July 9, 1995, the last show the Dead performed before Jerry’s untimely death.

    Don’t forget…

    In another times forgotten space
    Your eyes looked from your mothers face
    Wallflower seed on the sand and stone
    May the four winds blow you safely home.

    Franklins Tower
    The Grateful Dead
