"Good Shepherd" as written by and Jorma L. Jr. Kaukonen....
If you want to get to heaven
Over on the other shore
Stay out of the way of the blood-stained bandit
Oh good shepherd
Feed my sheep

One for Paul
One for Silas
One for to make my heart rejoice
Can't you hear my lambs are callin'
Oh good shepherd
Feed my sheep

If you want (if you want) to get to heaven
Over on (over on) the other shore
Stay out of the way of the long-tongue liar
Oh good shepherd
Feed my sheep

One for Paul
One for Silas
One for to make my heart rejoice
Can't you hear my lambs are callin'
Oh good shepherd
Feed my sheep

If you want to get to heaven (if you want to get to heaven)
Over on the other shore (over on the other shore)
Stay out of the way of the gun shot devil
Oh good shepherd
Feed my sheep

One for Paul
One for Silas
One for to make my heart rejoice
Can't you hear my lambs are callin'
Oh good shepherd
Feed my sheep

    General CommentAlthough it is originally a gospel song (that's what I heard), I think its use in the 60s by J.Airplane has political connotations (blood-stained bandit, long-tongue liar, gun shot devil, all refering to the American deceiving and militarist government).
