Although they gave it a good shot, Phish's performance of "Yer Blues" is usually the biggest criticism that discerning fans have of the 1994 Halloween White Album set. Phish’s version of this classic tune gets a lot of flak for being performed in somewhat lackluster fashion, but no one really complains, considering the rest of the second set of 10/31/94 is almost completely priceless.



As always, decide for yourself...

Yes I'm lonely wanna die
Yes I'm lonely wanna die
If I ain't dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why.

In the morning wanna die
In the evening wanna die
If I ain't dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why.

My mother was of the sky
My father was of the earth
But I am of the universe
And you know what it's worth
I'm lonely wanna die
If I ain't dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why.

The eagle picks my eye
The worm he licks my bones
I feel so suicidal
Just like Dylan's Mr. Jones
Lonely wanna die
If I ain't dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why.

Black cloud crossed my mind
Blue mist round my soul
Feel so suicidal
Even hate my rock and roll
Wanna die yeah wanna die
If I ain't dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why.
