"Dear Mr. Fantasy" as written by and Steve/wood Winwood....
Dear Mr. Fantasy play us a tune, something to make us all feel happy.
Do anything to take (keep) us out of this gloom
Sing a song, play guitar, make us happy.

You are the one who makes us feel glad
Please don't be sad to take up the straight life you had
We wouldn't have known you all these years.

Dear Mr. Fantasy play us a tune, something to treat us happy.
Do anything to take (keep) us out of this gloom
Sing a song, play guitar, make us happy.

    General CommentOriginally performed by Steve Winwood with his band Traffic on the album 'Mr. Fantasy.' The Dead included this song in their live repertoire, often performing it with their friend, none other than Winwood himself.

    *Correction: The sixth verse should read:
    "Please don't be sad, if it was a straight life you had..."

    Also performed by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Jimi Hendrix, Gov't Mule, and Widespread Panic.
