Grateful Dead songs with unusual time signatures

The list below sets out some of the Grateful Dead songs in unusual times signatures, or with passages in unusual time signatures. It does not include the many songs which are essentially in 4/4 but which include the odd bar of 2/4 (or the odd bar of 3/4 - eg Loose Lucy). It also excludes instrumentals, some of which have complex rhythms (eg Slipknot) and songs in 3/4 time, even though the Dead performed only a few originals in that time signature (eg Clementine, To Lay Me Down and Believe It Or Not).
