"Well, dizzy ain't the word for the way that you're making me feel now
Well, i need some indication, girl, if all of this is real now, tell me girl now

Well, i've heard it said there's something wrong in my head, now
Got to help me, girl, now
Could it be infatuation or am i just being misled now?

Little bolt of inspiration way you strike me now
Sparking my imagination, got the lightning now
Cause me such excitation, got the lightning now
'bout to end my suffocation, come on strike me now
Little bolt of inspiration way you strike me now, she's back in my imagination"

Did Weir write this song to Donna?


I just heard this tune live and listened to those two go back and forth... sounds like Bobby was singing to Donna...

Any thoughts?

Probably, I mean Bobby and Donna did sleep together and all.

I think I read somewhere in one of the Garcia biographies that he (Bobby) claimed Donna was his muse for a little while.

I saw the last version of this song ever at Shorline in '93 and it was the first one since 10/31/84, lucky me, I love that tune.

I have never heard that Bobby slept with Donna? This is truly a 1st. I certainly hope that it was not while Keith was alive? I would be deeply disappointed if she did. I have allways been of the impression that Donna is a very spiritual/religious person. Specifically Christian, which would make that suggestion completely out of the question.

Pleeeze! Say it ain't so! Say it ain't so!

From the impressions I have read and heard (which are probably not very reliable), Bobby and Donna did have a 'thing' while she was in the band. Bear in mind that Kieth's lover was heroin.(not that that's an excuse) and I believe she became some sort of Christian after she left the Grateful Dead.

Something to keep in mind with the majority of the Dead's work... John Barlow wrote the lyrics to the song, not Bobby. I know a lot of times Bob rewrote the lyricists, but they're mostly Barlow's. Maybe Barlow wrote it about Donna!

My wife often will say "I wonder if Jerry wrote this about that" and I have to remind her that Hunter wrote the lyrics and Jerry wrote the lyrics. Although Hunter has mentioned that some lyrics were written "for" Jerry, meaning that he understood Jerry's perspective. But it's not quite the same thing...

Actually. (By my best understanding.) Robert would write lyrics to songs. And by the time Jerry was done with them, they would be pretty much completely changed. It was like Jerry just had a different take on what he wanted the message to be. But he definately did have a lot of respect for whatever Robert wanted to portray in the song also.

I saw Robert comment on it in some documentary once. He would listen to recordings of the band jamming, and try to come up with words to fit the jam. Then he would run it past Jerry, who would pass it back to Robert. (And so on and so on.)

During the comment that I recall. Robert said that "Ripple" was the one song in particular that Jerry had no desire to make any changes to.

I could be wrong! Who knows? I wasn't there at the time.

Bobby probably laid the 'muse' tag on every girl in the Haight.

I have a friend who followed the Dead for at least a dozen or so shows every year. He finally got backstage with the help of some girl he knew at an Indiana show. He was really upset because he told me Bob kept trying to get the girl(my friends buddy) to have sex with him and he was also pretty belligerent. It devastated pal for a long time.

If he were in the room, I think the correct word would be 'menage'.

I've heard similar stories about Bobby.

He's really flown under the radar about being one of Rock N Roll's biggest dirty d*$ks.
