Good Lyrics: Kind Veggie Burritos

Kind Veggie Burritos
by Steve McMurry

One day back in late ’91
I was looking for somewhere to go
When a buddy of mine
he dropped me a dime and said,
“Come see the Grateful Dead show.”

Well, we pulled up to the coliseum
and as far as I could see
it was white tourist shirts
and boys wearing skirts saying,
“Dude, can you miracle me?”

Well, the band, they were jumping
had the whole place twisting and twirling
We had us great fun
but when the music was done,
I thought I heard somebody call

He called out,
“Kind veggie burritos!
Wrapped up and ready to go!”
Made fresh with love,
so let’s offer the dove
for the kind veggie burrito!

Oh, we walked along for a while
to the edge of the big parking lot
and behind this old van
stood a rail-y young man
he was making ’em
and making ’em hot!

He said,
“We all camped out here last night,
but the cops, they just won’t let us be.
But my brother’s in jail,
and you can help post his bail
by buying just a couple of these!”

Just a couple of
Kind veggie burritos
Wrapped up and ready to go
Made fresh with love
so let’s offer the dove
for the kind veggie burrito.
