Leave Well Enough Alone

Lyrics: Frank Wakefield
Music: Frank Wakefield

Played by the Good Old Boys in 1975, with Jerry Garcia sitting in on banjo at one show.

Chorus
Since my baby left and gone
I feel so blue and all alone
I've lost all I ever owned
'Cause I couldn't leave well enough alone

Like a fool I went astray
Your love I know I'll need some day
Where there's a will there is a way
I'm hoping that you'll come back some day

[chorus]

No love for you I've ever shown
I feel so blue and all alone
I've lost all I ever owned
'Cause I couldn't leave well enough alone

[chorus]

[chorus]
'Cause I couldn't leave well enough alone
