  • Lyrics
  • Trey Anastasio and Tom Marshall wrote this at a Vermont farmhouse that inspired the song. When they arrived, there was a note saying something like: "Welcome. This is a farmhouse. We have cluster flies this time of year. There is little we can do." This was incorporated into the lyrics. >>
