Ron "Pigpen" McKernan: Pigpen's Pig's Kins: Excerpt from the Great Pumpkin Letters
This is an actual copy of a letter that was burned in a fire that was never started
It is from Chief Crazy Captain Christo to R.P.M ( to be read only at a night time barbecue).
For those of you who don't know ,without Pigpen , there would be no Grateful Dead.
Or it would have been a ship without a Captain.
When Chief Crazy Captain Christo meets back up with Pigpen
I never got to tell you how much I loved your band.
Well, Pigpen I am writing this with tears in my eyes.
I might need Linus' blanket to cover my red eyes so you can't see.
Oh what the Hell, I don't care let the whole world know that my Tears are for Pig's in a Blanket.
Tell Loose Lucy that Cosmic Charlie is heading for the endzone and Schroeder is now delivering Milk for a living Yep Milky Way as I like to tease him.
Seriously, Pig I have one request for the man upstairs cause I know You must be there. Tell him I know I have made my mistakes,
and my final request of a prayer would be this:
The only way I am going anywhere is to get this party started.
Meet me down around Lynchburg Tennessee sometime in the future. You will recognize me by a strange and magnificent smoke. I will be surrounded by Twelve Webbers, Eleven Chefs and I will be organizing my own Band. You should be able to see my One Man band with me playing a DIME(Electric Razorback Explosion) store guitar rockin on a Half Pipe skateboard ramp jammin out songs from the past as well as new un-re-hear-sed tunes that have yet to be named.
Hope you can tell that I'm getting amped for the show down in LYTN.
Respectfully in Truth,
Chief Crazy Captain Christo
P.S. When I do meet back up with you Pig, if you don't mind bringing three shots and shot glasses with you we'll recite the 23rd Psalm in the Valley of the Shadows.
Then and only then can I say " Yup, Good Grief the Tennessee Gangs All Here"
I don't know exactly when I will be there but tell ol FUMble Fingers that I could use a little of da Vine intermission. Thanks a lot. Oh and One last thing Pigpen before I go. What would you like for dessert? I'm working man on an animal cracker whipped cream ala mode with the name Pig's Delight. What do you think? Might as well cross that off my two DO lew list. Lightnin Smokestacks gonna be my name....2019, 18, 17, 16, 15, 14, 13,12, 11...
P.S. ( that's Pig Script +++)
Here are the figures of the National Debt as of right now.
You might notice a few
numbers related to Jerry Garcia but only a true fan can figure out what to do with them +++
National Debt Training begins January 4th 2011 and goes till the Beach is settled.
"....Tennessee Tennessee there aint no place I'd rather beeeee.... Pigpen won't you meet me
pleeeeese back in TENNESSEE " as sung by GRIZZLE DRIZZLE. You can only meet GRIZZLE
DRIZZLE when Christo Strom's " How to Erase the National Debt " gets to Nashville.
Till then, don't lend your hands to raise no flags atop no Ship of Fools!"
