I Ain't Never

Lyrics: Mel Tillis, Michael Pierce
Music: Mel Tillis, Michael Pierce

Played by Jerry with David Grisman and with the Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band. Sometimes appears in setlists as "Never Seen Nobody But You"

This is the version on "Been All Around This World" - on other versions the verses are sometimes in a different order

Well, I ain't never
I ain't never
Seen nobody like you
Well never
Have I ever
Seen nobody like you

Well, you call me up, and say you'll meet me at nine
I have to hurry, hurry, but I'm there on time
I walk right up, I knock on your door
The landlord says you ain't here no more

I ain't never
Oh darling
Seen nobody like you
Well, but I love you
Yes, I love you
I love you just the same

I ain't never
I ain't never
Seen nobody like you
No, never
Have I ever
Seen nobody like you

Well, you tell me sweet things that you don't mean
You got me living in a walking dream
So many things, that you're gonna do
My friends say "man, what's wrong with you?"

I ain't never
Oh darling
Seen nobody like you
Oh, but I love you
Yes, I love you
I love you just the same

Well, you tell me sweet things that you don't mean
You got me living in a walking dream
[Call me] things, that you're don't do
My friends say "man, what's wrong with you?"

I ain't never
Oh, darling
Seen nobody like you
Oh, no, no, never
But I love you
I love you just the same
Well I love you just the same
