She's Mine

Lyrics: Lightin' Hopkins
Music: Lightin' Hopkins

This has to be one of the oddest songs the Dead ever covered. It appeared a few times in acoustic sets in 1970. It was also recorded by Pigpen for an unreleased solo album.

Well she's little and she's low, right down on the ground
You know she's little and she's low, right down on the ground
You know the way she acts makes a rabbit hug a hound

And she's mine, she's mine, she's mine, she's mine
She's mine, she's little and low, crippled and she's blind

Everybody's laughin' at me where I go
'Cause I lead my woman down the road
But she's mine, she's mine
Well she's mine, she little and low, crippled and she's blind

She's alright, make me feel so good
She's alright, make me feel so good
Yes if I didn't know, the woodpecker wouldn't be pecking no wood

Well, she's little and she's low again, right down on the ground
She's little and she's low, right down on the ground
You know, the way she acts make a rabbit hug a hound

She's still my baby, she feels so good
Yes, she's mine, she's little and low, crippled and she's blind
