Baby, Bring Your Sweet Lovin' To Me

Lyrics: Peter Ostroushko
Music: Peter Ostroushko

Played by the Trichromes, with Bill Kreutzmann. I've not heard a redording, and am not sure this is the right song, but it seems plausible.

Just walking around the steets of this town
Just a shadow in an old pair of shoes
Got some money to burn but there's nowhere to turn
When your baby's gone and you're feeling blue

Looking down, turning grey, feeling old and in the way
Like Albert Einstein on his worst bad hair day
And as lovers walk by, from deep within comes a sigh
Baby, bring your sweet lovin' to me

I dreamt I saw you last night, and my heart felt so light
I looked down, we had wings on our shoes
Like Ginger Rodgers, Fred Astaire, we danced on moonlight and air
Like Gene Kelly we were singing in the rain

In my arms there with me, I was a Yo Yo Ma wanna-be
On your heart strings I played Flight of the Bee
But in the cold light of dawn, I woke up, you were gone
Baby, bring your sweet love back to me

Baby, bring your sweet lovin' to me
Baby, bring your sweet lovin' to me
I've done all I can do, but I'm still missing you
Honey, come back and set my heart free

Baby, bring your sweet lovin' to me
Baby, bring your sweet lovin' to me
In your sweet arms' caress, I'll put my burdens to rest
Baby, bring your sweet lovin' to me

Now I sit here alone, and I stare at the phone
Baby, will you be calling sometime
Stuck in the tunnel of love, spiralling down love's great [?]
I think I'm gonna slowly lose my mind

There's a full moon tonight, but I'm a wolf with no bite
I'm just a young little pup that's in heat
I'm a bird with one wing, a nightingale that can't sing
I'm a rusty old board, a junk heap

I'm like a small old town that no one ever comes around
'Cause there's nothing here of interest to see
But baby when you're with me, my heart and soul are set free
Baby, bring your sweet lovin' to me

Baby, bring your sweet lovin' to me
Baby, bring your sweet lovin' to me
I've done all I can do, but I'm still missing you
Honey, come back and set my heart free

Baby, bring your sweet lovin' to me
Baby, bring your sweet lovin' to me
In your sweet arms' caress, I'll put my burdens to rest
Baby, bring your sweet lovin' to me
Baby, bring your sweet lovin' to me
