  1. Norwegian Wood
In cart Not available Out of stock

This track has a nice 3/4 (waltz time) feel to it, and I enjoy playing it. The challenge was to come up with an opening figure, so that when the piano begins the vocal part, the main theme is still fresh. When the vocal part ends, a Dead jam ensues. I wonder if the Dead have any jams in 3/4 time?

Lyrics

I once had a girl
Or should I say she once had me
She showed me her room
Isn't it good Norwegian wood?
She asked me to stay
And she told me to sit anywhere
So I looked around
And I noticed there wasn't a chair
I sat on a rug biding my time
Drinking her wine
We talked until two and then she said
"It's time for bed"
She told me she worked
In the morning and started to laugh
I told her I didn't
And crawled off to sleep in the bath
And when I awoke I was alone
This bird had flown
So I lit a fire
Isn't it good Norwegian wood?
