Ain't That Peculiar

Lyrics: Robinson, Tarplin, Rogers, Moore
Music: Robinson, Tarplin, Rogers, Moore

Soundchecked by the Dead once on 25 June 1993 but never played at a concert.

Bob Weir played it with Bobby & The Midnites in 1984 and then a few times with Ratdog in 1995.

You do me wrong and still I'm crazy about you
Stay away too long and I can't do without you
Each chance you get you seem to hurt me more and more
And each hurt just makes my love grow stronger than before
I know flowers go from rain
But how can love grow from pain
(Pain, pain)

Ain't that peculiar
(Ain't that peculiar)
(So peculiar)
Ain't it peculiar baby
(Ain't that peculiar)
Peculiar as can be
(So peculiar)

Honey, you tellin' me lies that should be obvious to me
And I'm so much in love, baby, till I don't wanna see
That things you do and say are designed to make me blue
And it's a dog-gone shame my love for you
Makes all your lies seem true
I know that truth makes love last longer
Why do lies make my love stronger
(Stronger, stronger)


I cried so much just like a child that's lost its home
Maybe baby you think these tears I cry are tears of joy
A child can cry so much until you do everything they say
But unlike a child my tears don't help me to get my way
I know love can last through years
But how can love last through tears
(Tears, tears)


Ain't it peculiar
(Ain't that peculiar)
Honey you're so strange
(So peculiar)
Don't understand it babe
(Ain't that peculiar)
Honey you should change
(So peculiar)
