    McGonigel's Mucky Duck



Patterson Barrett
by Richard Manuel and Robbie Robertson


This sadly prophetic song first appeared on The Band's "Stage Fright" album, 16 years before Richard Manuel took his own life in 1986


For the life we chose in the evening we rose

Just long enough to be lovers again

If for nothing more, the world was too sore to live in

Sad old ships, a morning eclipse

I’ve spent my whole life missing

Then I turned from the sun and saw everyone searching

The hoot owl and his song will bring you along, where else on earth would you want to go?

We can leave all this hate before it’s too late, why would we want to come back at all?

Cobwebs on my pillow, I’m found in the willow

I’ve spent my whole life sleeping

To be called by noon is to be called to soon today

Now the storm is passed, there’s peace at last

I’ll spend my whole life sleeping

Now there’s not a sound, no one to be found anywhere

The shepherd and his sheep will wind you to sleep, where else on earth would you want to go?

To a land of wonder when we go under Why would you want to come back at all?
