Lyrics: Hank Cochran
Music: Hank Cochran

Played by Bob Weir with Kingfish in the 1970s, and by Ratdog in 2006 to mark Buck Owens' death. Also played by the New Riders in their early days.

I don't know you from Adam
But if you're gonna play the jukebox
Please don't play A-11
Please don't play A-11

I only came in here from force of habit
I don't intend to spend too much time in here
But I heard you matchin' for the music
And if you play A-11 there'll be tears


This used to be our favorite spot
And when she was here it was heaven
It was here she told me that she loved me
And she always played A-11
