Katie Kline

Lyrics: Traditional
Music: Traditional

Played by Jerry Garcia with the Black Mountain Boys in March 1964. Thanks to Matt Schofield for the lyrics.

Now who else knows Katie Kline
She lives at the foot of the hill
In a cool shady nook, by an old babbling brook
That runs by her dear old father's mill

Chorus
So tell me that you love me Katie Kline
Tell me that your love's as true as mine
Tell me that you love your own turtle dove
Tell me that you love me Katie Kline

Now if I was a little bird
I'd never build my nest on the ground
I'd build my nest in the high oak tree
Where the bad boys could never tear it down

[chorus]

Now if I was a little bee
Away from the hive I would fly
I'd steal me a kiss from my true lover's lips
And back to the hive I would fly

[chorus]
