PHISH - Ride Captain Ride UMASS 10/24/2010



Phish Yacht Rock anyone? Only the 11th time performed and first time performed since 12/10/99 almost 11 years ago.

I was 10 when this song debuted in 1970. A 1-hit wonder by the group Blues Image it hit number 4 on the charts. Many of the members of Blues Image went on to successful careers with other bands like CSN, Alice Cooper, Three Dog Night and Iron Butterfly.

I was 15 when that song debuted in 1970. I liked it then.

Seventy-three men sailed up from the San Francisco Bay
Rolled off of their ship, and here's what they had to say
"We're callin' everyone to ride along to another shore
We can laugh our lives away and be free once more"

/ D - E E7 / G7 - D - / :

But no one heard them callin', no one came at all
'Cause they were too busy watchin' those old raindrops fall
As a storm was blowin' out on the peaceful sea
Seventy-three men sailed off into history

Ride, captain ride upon your mystery ship
Be amazed at the friends you have here on your trip
Ride captain ride upon your mystery ship
On your way to a world that others might have missed

{Refrain}

Ride, captain ride upon your mystery ship
Be amazed at the friends you have here on your trip

Wow-Old San Fran Boy- not surprised that you liked the song way back in '70 when you 15.

Sure am glad you still love going to shows old man-we sure have fun Ravin. Thanks for the lyrics.

Why do I always miss Lizards?

PHISH PLAYED THIS BECAUSE THE SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS MADE IT TO THE WORLD SERIES ON SATURDAY NIGHT!!!!

I'm a Mets fan, but you gotta love this kind of shit; this is PHISH!

How did no one else comment on this yet?

Who thinks they played it for any other reason? I wanna hear

I thought Phish played Ride Captain Ride for the trapped Chilean miners?

It's nice they busted it out as a tribute to the Bay Area Giants (agree with WORD), because that's the only part of California Capshaw and Phish seem to give a damn about any more.
