David Crosby Has Written a Poem for Jerry Garcia

Jerry Garcia would have turned 70 years old yesterday if he hadn’t died of a heart attack in 1995.  To celebrate his birthday, David Crosby wrote a poem to pay tribute to him.

It’s called “Cause I’m Missing Jerry Tonight”, and it begins like this:

“Cause I’m missing him tonight . . .

“If I had to pick one of us to speak for us all / He would have done the job well

Coming from some crazy angle / He’d have known which story to tell

He’d tell the truth about real music / He knew the truth long before he fell.”


You can find the whole thing at DavidCrosby.com.

David and Jerry were long-time friends. Garcia even played steel guitar on CSN’s ‘Teach Your Children‘.
