Bye Bye Love

Lyrics: Felice and Boudleaux Bryant
Music: Felice and Boudleaux Bryant

Sung by Joan Baez with the Grateful Dead on 12 and 31 December 1981. Also sung by her as part of a solo acoustic set between the Dead's sets on 30 December 1981.

Bye bye love
Bye bye happiness
Hello loneliness
I think I'm gonna cry
Bye bye love
Bye bye sweet caress
Hello emptiness
I feel like I could die
Bye bye my love, goodbye

There goes my baby
With someone new
She sure looks happy
I sure am blue
She was my baby
Till he stepped in
Goodbye to romance
That might have been


I'm through with romance
I'm through with love
I'm through with counting
The stars above
And here's the reason
That I'm so free
My loving baby
Is through with me
