Crime Doesn’t Pay     
Lyrics to "Serenity Knows" by Ivan Smason

San Francisco baby, see you in heaven some day
San Francisco baby, see you in heaven some day
Oh your papa always loves you, but the police don't care what you say

Marin County baby, see you in heaven one day
Marin County baby, see you in heaven one day
Oh your babies always love you, but the hobos don't care what you say

For the love of Elizabeth Cotten
For the love of Tennessee Jed
Serenity Knolls, peace, love and freedom
Jerry's joined the dead

Cumberland Blues bounty baby
Gonna see you in heaven some day
Your mama always loves you, but the women don't care what you say

For the love of Elizabeth Cotten
For the sweet love of Uncle John's Band
Serenity knows about peace, love and freedom
Jerome Garcia is dead

For the love of an acid party
For the love of the Grateful Heads
Where is the Doo Dah and the Mandrake man?
Oh Captain Trips is dead
