The first word is "Warden".
Sometimes, I just wish I could give Jerry a hug. A huge hug.
It would feel so damn good. I love Jerry Garcia.
I'll say this... I teared up a bit in the car today from a beautiful Sing Me Back Home. The first verse is just gut wrenching sometimes.
The Veneta version kills me every single time.
The whole show kills me every single time.
Just listen to the first vocals: "Mornin'" sounds like it's choking up Jerry, and he hasn't even heard the rest of the song yet.
actually, the 1st word is "the"
I don't think he actually says "The" or if he does it's phrased softly like
"(The) Warden led the prisoner..."
I cant hear that word in my head at any rate.
