City Girls

Lyrics: Gerrit Graham
Music: Bob Weir

Played by Bob Weir with Bobby & The Midnites, Ratdog and other bands. Gerrit Graham has confirmed in an article on the Annotated GD Lyrics Site that he wrote the lyrics.

The words are difficult to make out from the recording I've got - thanks to Jill Goodman and Dave Clark for their help in deciphering some bits:

City girls, they're not the same
Different breed, even a different name
Whoa such strut and sass
Gold-plated class
It's their court, it's their ball and their game

Whoa they know so much better than me
What you're gonna be, what you're gonna do
When they turn it out
They leave no doubt, no doubt
They were old when the world was young

City girls
Yeah, loose curls
Sweet hips
Yeah sweet lips

Tight skirts
Whoa, love hurts
City girls
I love city girls
City girls
I love city girls

Country girls, they're so sweet
But I like to skate on thinner ice
I like city girls, oh city girls
Twice the fun, six times the price

City girls
I love, I love, I love city girls
City girls
Gimme, gimme, gimme city girls
City girls
City, city, city girls
City girls
