Just Kissed My Baby

Lyrics: Modeliste, Neville, Nocentelli, Porter
Music: Modeliste, Neville, Nocentelli, Porter

Played by Jerry Garcia with Merl Saunders in Legion Of Mary in 1974. It is played as an instrumental, but the main riff seems to come from the song by The Meters "Just Kissed My Baby."

Most setlists for 10 November 1974 list an instrumental called "Albany Rag" but this is definitely the tune as the one listed as "Just Kissed My Baby" on eg 28 November 1974). The title "Albany Rag" was presumably used because the concert that night was in Albany, NY.

The lyrics from the Meters' version are:

I feel like a king
'Cause I just kissed my baby
And money don't mean a thing to me, no
'Cause I just kissed my baby
Feels so good, ha
That I just kissed my baby
Well, well, well I'm no [?]
'Cause I just kissed by baby

Well, well, well, ya
I know I can't go wrong
All we ever do, ha
Is decide to get along, yeah

I feel brand new
'Cause I just kissed by baby
And I'm going back to [?] too
'Cause I just kissed by baby
And I feel so doggone great, just can't wait
Just kissed by baby
Me and my girl need to hibernate
'Cause I just kissed by baby

Well, well, well
Just kissed my baby
Just kissed my baby
Just kissed my baby
Just kissed my baby
Just kissed my baby
Just kissed my baby
Just kissed my baby
Just kissed my baby
Wait on

I feel so good inside
Just kissed by baby
I was on my side, that's a bad day
'Cause I just kissed by baby
Just got so bad
Just kissed my baby
I keep on
Just kissed by baby
Keep a-walking, keep a-moving
[etc]
