Wrong Way Feelin'

Lyrics: John Barlow
Music: Bob Weir

Played by Bob Weir with many of his bands outside the Grateful Dead

Girl, you make me suspect there are certain delights
That might be news to me
And I know at a glance you could show me all the sights
I'd ever care to see
You're a queen of the elite
And a treat between the sheets
But I wonder if it's all for free

It's that wrong way feelin'
Wrong way feelin'
Go back says the sign way back in my mind
But I can't get away from you
No I can't get away from you
No, no I can't get away from you
No, no

Honey, you're comin' on like the Pharaoh's daughter
All silk and style and class
Down I go like a lamb to the slaughter
Honey, here's my ass
Oh I already seen this show
Still you know I'm gonna go
But ain't we taking this a bit too fast?


We all know the story about Helen of Troy
And her thousand ships
Well she didn't have a thing that could get to this boy
Like a shake of your hips
What you're doing to me now
I know my mama don't allow
And there's trouble painted on your lips


Ooh sweet siren
Hit my switch
Ooh sweet siren
I never could resist a witch (note 1)
No, no

Hey go back
Hey go back
Wrong way feelin'
Wrong way feelin'
Hey go back says the sign
Hey go back says the sign
Well I've given up trying
(1) Barlow's lyrics have "I never could resist a bitch" but Weir definitely sings "witch"
