Oh Boy

Lyrics: Sonny West, Bill Tilghman, Norman Petty
Music: Sonny West, Bill Tilghman, Norman Petty

Only known to have been played once by the Grateful Dead, in 1971. It is possible they also played it in 1966 - see All Of My Love. It was also played by "Bob Weir and Friends" (Weir, Garcia, Lesh and Hart) in November 1978, and Joan Baez sang it with the Grateful Dead once in 1981. It was played by The Dead with Bob Dylan in 2003.

All my love, all my kissin'
You don't know what you been missing

Oh boy, when you're with me
Oh boy, want the world would see
That you were meant for me

All my life I've been waitin'
Tonight there will be no hesitatin'


Stars appear and the shadows falling
You can my heart a-calling
A little bit of loving makes everything right
I want to see my baby tonight

[repeats etc]
