|So, you clicked
on the bear... Either you were curious or you know why.....
Poverty Bar was the official name of our property when we first acquired it, but as a tribute to the Grateful Dead we decided to inofficially find a name that would be fitting. This is our dream house and we have worked hard for it. We do the rentals both to be able to finance this project but also to be able to share the beauty of these surroundings with our friends and other people who will know how to appreciate it.
So, the name Beggar's Tomb seemed pretty obvious. It comes from "Uncle John's Band" and definitely fits together with Poverty Bar, 'cause that's where we will be if this doesn't work out....
The Grateful Dead and their music have had a significant influence on our lives. Through the brotherhood of deadheads we have got to know so many people and made so many really good friends. And it is thanks to these friends that we can offer this beautiful house for rent. Without their support and help, we would probably not have made it this far.
Even though the 'Dead do not play together anymore, their spirit lives on, at least in our hearts.
For a great site with annotations on this and other Grateful Dead songs, we strongly recommend that you visit David Dodds great Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics site.
