Eating Out Of Your Hand

Lyrics: Bill Harrell, Hope Harlow
Music: Bill Harrell, Hope Harlow

Played by Jerry Garcia with Old And In The Way.

I'm tired of eating out of your hand
I'm tired of getting told
These blues are leaving me as of now
I'll be the one so bold
You better walk this chalk line
And let this poor man be
Or else you'll find yourself alone
Footloose and fancy free

Eating out of your hand
You think you've got me on a string
You've fooled me more than once
But let me tell you just one thing
Someday I'll leave you woman
Then you'll understand
A man can only take so much
Of eating out of your hand

You're oh so domineering
Your wish is my command
Your jealous heart won't let me live
You boss me and demand
New clothes, a diamond ring so fine
A Cadillac is grand
On payday I'm your victim
And I'm eating out of your hand


When I come home you're waiting
To question what I've done
You have my free time planned for me
I work from sun to sun
If only you would realise
That old stuff gets old
A man likes just a little time
That he can call his own
