Video: The South covers Grateful Dead – Scarlet Begonias

The South (Tou Scene, Stavanger 2013)

She had rings on her fingers and bells on her shoes.
And I knew without askin’ she was into the blues.
She wore scarlet begonias tucked into her curls,

This is a very fine interpretation of The Dead’s Scarlet Begonias. We’ve seen them do it live (they work it into Allman Brothers’ Jessica, it works!) and it is a fitting honor to The Grateful Dead. They have made it a bit more “swampy”, they have made their own original take on it. Here it is live in studio.

The South – Scarlet Begonias:

Let us include the original as a bonus.
