Love In The Afternoon

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: John Kahn

Played regularly by the Jerry Garcia Band after its introduction in 1976.

Love - love in the afternoon
outside the window
an organ grinder's tune

Rhythm, wine
A touch of Jamaica
Twilight time with a Kingston lady
All the time in the world
for me and that girl

Sweet - she sang sweetly
Come back soon
Come back for more of that love
in the afternoon

Breezes blow by me
in the afternoon
She sings sweetly
an organ grinder's tune

Finally recovered from last year's round
of bye-bye baby blues
All I crave today
Some love in the afternoon

Love - love in the afternoon
It's easy as she goes
like an organ grinder's tune

Gone with the moon
any old trouble
can't leave too soon
Trouble's no part of what I want
Especially in the afternoon

Sleeping till two
Waking to make more
Love in the afternoon
