Helm was known for his deeply soulful, country-accented voice, multi-instrumental ability, and creative drumming style, highlighted on many of the Band’s recordings

Lyrics below

Happy song, happy people…

Boards on the window, mail by the door
Why would anybody leave so quickly for?
Ophelia
Where have you gone?

The old neighborhood just ain’t the same
Nobody knows just what became
Of Ophelia
Tell me, what went wrong?

Was it somethin’ that somebody said?
Mama, I know we broke the rules
Was somebody up against the law?
Honey, you know I’d die for you

Ashes of laughter, the ghost is clear
Why do the best things always disappear
Like Ophelia
Please darken my door

Was it somethin’ that somebody said?
Honey, you know we broke the rules
Was somebody up against the law?
Honey, you know I’d die for you

They got your number, scared and runnin’
But I’m still waitin’ for the second comin’
Of Ophelia
Come back home
