"Might As Well" as written by Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter....
Great North Special, would you all board
You can't find a ride like that no more
The night the chariot swung down low
Ninety-nine children had a chance to go
One long party from front to end
Tune to the whistle going round the bend
No great hurry, what do you say?

Might as well to be every way
Might as well, might as well, might as well, might as well
Might as well, might as well, might as well, might as well
Might as well, might as well, might as well

Ragtime slowly for twenty-five miles
Then switch over to the cajun style
Bar car blowing rhythm and blues
Rock 'n' roll wailing in the old caboose
Long train running from coast to coast
Bringing home a party when you need it the most
Work on the box car, beat on the bell
Nothing else shaking so you might just as well

Might as well, might as well, might as well, might as well
Might as well, might as well, might as well, might as well
Might as well, might as well, might as well

Never had such a good time in my life before
I'd like to have it one time more
Whoa! One good ride from start to end
I'd like to take that ride again, again!
Ran out of track and I caught the plane
Back in the county with the blues again
Great North Special been on my mind
I might like to ride it just one more time

Might as well, might as well, might as well, might as well
Might as well, might as well, might as well, might as well
Might as well, might as well, might as well

    General CommentThis song is about the "Festival Express" tour that crossed Canada in 1970. The Dead, Janis Joplin, The Band, Buddy Guy, Flying Burrito Brothers traveled by train from Toronto to Vancouver. The train ride was more memorable than the shows by most accounts. Check out the documentary of the same name.
