All The Good Times Are Past And Gone

Lyrics: Traditional
Music: Traditional

Played by Jerry Garcia with his wife Sarah in May 1963, with Robert Hunter and Marshall Leicester in July 1961 and with the Hart Valley Drifters in 1962.

All the good times are past and gone
All the good times are o'er
All the good times are past and gone
Little darling don't you weep no more

Oh don't you see that lonesome dove
He flies from pine to pine
He's mourning for his own true love
Just like I mourn for mine


Come to me my little [dove]
Stay a while with me
If ever I had a friend in this world
You've been a friend to me


I wish to the Lord that I'd never been born
Or died when I was young
Before I'd seen your two brown eyes
Or heard your lying tongue
