Loose Lucy

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jerry Garcia

Loose Lucy is my delight
She comes running and we ball all night
Round and round and round and round
Don't take much to get me on the ground
She's my yo-yo, I'm her string
Listen to the birds on the hot wire sing

Chorus
Singing yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Singing thank you, for a real good time

I got jumped coming home last night
Shadow in the alley turned out all my lights
Round and round and round and round
Don't take much to get me on the ground
Loose Lucy, she was sore
Says I know you can't want my love no more,

[chorus]

Bebop baby, how can this be
I know you've been out a cheating on me
Round and round and round and round
Don't take much to get the word around
Cross my heart and hope to die
I was just hanging out with the other guys

[chorus]

Went back home with two black eyes
You know I'll love her till the day I die
Round and round and round and round
Don't take much to get the word around
I like your smile but I ain't your type
Don't shake the tree when the fruit ain't ripe

[chorus]
