About this song

Faaare ye well, my honey Fare ye well, my only true love All the birds that were singin' Have flown except you alone Wow, I am beginning to feel like a broken record when I say this is a legendary Grateful Dead song that displays Robert Hunter's work at its finest. I suppose that what happens when you have Box of Rain and Brokedown Palace one after the other in the alphabetical song list. Brokedown isn't as metaphysical as Box of Rain but instead a much more sincere and poignant love song.
