Words by Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter and chords from Jerry Garcia, though it wasn't a song the Dead performed. I first encountered the tune when I watched Barry Melton performing it at a show in Portsmouth and fell in love with its irresistible groove. I tried out the song at an open mic night a few years later, and got a great response from the audience who enhusiastically joined in with voices and instruments. The following day I recorded my own arrangement, trying to capture what I'd heard the night before.
