I first heard this song on the radio in the 70s.  I don’t think you’ll hear a 17-minute rock opus on the radio today.

It’s a love song from Adam to Eve, in the Garden of Eden.  Promising to be true seems like a pretty easy promise to keep when there are only two people in existence.

Full lyrics HERE.

    • For me, the Grateful Dead was sort of a gateway drug. Once I became accustomed to thirty minute songs, a standard three-minute pop song just wouldn’t cut it anymore.

      • You’re so hard core! Haha! I haven’t listened to a full three minute pop song in, let’s see, at least ten years. Isn’t that wonderful? Talk about audial poison! 😱
