Robbie Robertson – Broken Arrow (1987)

MI0002784208

This ballad is not to be confused either with Chuck Berry’s 1959 single or Buffalo Springfield’s 1967 song of the same name, written by Neil Young.

The American rock band the Grateful Dead started covering “Broken Arrow” in 1992 with bassist Phil Lesh singing lead vocals. The song became a crowd favorite and one of Lesh’s most successful contributions in the later years of the band.

The song was also covered by Rod Stewart on his album Vagabond Heart (1991); it was released as a single with an accompanying music video.
