Buckdancer's Choice

Lyrics: [none]
Music: Traditional

An instrumental played by Jerry Garcia with the Sleepy Hollow Hog Stompers in July 1962.

The title forms part of the lyrics to Uncle John's Band

Robert Hunter played a medley on 2 March 1997 consisting of fragments from George Buck's Choice, Liberty and Silvio with some unidentified snatches - below. At the end he announced it as "Buckdancer's Choice" and added "Not having played that for ten or fifteen years, I was a little rusty".

[?] down way buckdancer's choice
And now too [?] of hearing my voice

Left me here, on my own
[?] where with a back to the bones
Whole bunch of crackers and some books to read
[?] grown from a mustard seed
