Franklin's Tower

Words by Robert Hunter. Music by Jerry Garcia & Bill Kreutzmann.



In another time's forgotten space

Your eyes looked through your mother's face

Wildflower seed on the stand and stone

May the four winds blow you safely home



(Chorus)

Roll away... the dew . . .

Roll away... the dew . . .

Roll away... the dew . . .

Roll away... the dew . . .



You ask me where the four winds dwell

In Franklin's tower there hangs a bell

It can ring, turn night to day

Ring like fire when you lose your way



(Chorus)



God help the child who rings that bell

It may have one good ring left, you can't tell

One watch by night, one watch by day

If you get confused just listen to the music play



(Chorus)



Some come to laugh their past away

Some come to make it just one more day

Whichever way your pleasure tends

If you plant ice you're gonna harvest wind



(Chorus)



In Franklin's Tower the four winds sleep

Like four lean hounds the lighthouse keep

Wildflower seed in the sand and wind

May the four winds blow you home again





(Chorus)



You better roll away the dew
