Name That Lyric: Episode 15:Didn't Pat Sajack Write Those Lyrics ?

Welcome, everyone, welcome....Everyone have a beverage ? What's that, Jim ? You don't have one, well they're over on the side table there, help yourself...We got Fresca, Nestea, Orange Slice, some flavored waters and of course, coffee and tea...What's that ? NO, we don't have Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper, Just have a Fresca and sit the fuck down...Jesus, Jim, why do i invite you ? Okay, well it's time for Name That Lyric !!! We didn't have a winner last week...In fact, we were back to no guesses at all...Oh well, the Lyric:
"I been gambling here abouts
for ten good solid years
If I told you all that went down
it would burn off both your ears"
, is from "Deal" by Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter, a live staple for both the Grateful Dead AND the Jerry Garcia Band, originally appearing on Garcia's first solo record, simply titled "Garcia". So those of you that chose not to guess, close, but no cigar.
Onto today's Mystery Lyric:

"Don't say a word
Don't say anything
Don't say a word
I'm not even listening"

Good luck, Crimestoppers !!!!!

There's really nothing like Jerry Band doing a good Deal. I once heard (and danced) to one that totally exhausted me. It was wonderful.

Helen, thanks for stopping by. And yeah, there were very few uninspired versions of "Deal". It was a lively one.
