To lay me down, once more
To lay me down, with my head
in sparkling clover, Let the world go by
all lost in dreaming, To lay me down
one last time, To lay me down

To be with you, once more
To be with you, with our bodies
close together, Let the world go by
like clouds a-streaming
To lay me down, one last time
To lay me down

I’m very proud to reveal my official poster for the GRATEFUL DEAD’s ‘Fare Thee Well’ shows, celebrating 50 years this weekend at Levi’s Stadium Santa Clara, CA. Needless to say, it’s a huge honour to have been invited to work on this piece and to gain the legendary band’s approval, especially for such an historic event. Expertly printed by the always outstanding Burlesque Of North America, this 6 colour 18x24" screen print (with metallic gold ink) will be available all weekend at the shows in a limited edition of 2000 prints. I will have a very small number available soon via my own store - go and sign up over at www.richeybeckett.com for more information! Thanks for looking, and those of you lucky enough to make it to the shows, have an incredible weekend!
