Make Me A Pallet On Your Floor

Lyrics: Traditional
Music: Traditional

Played by Jerry Garcia with the Black Mountain Boys in March 1964. Robert Hunter also played a fragment in 1997 as part of an Elizabeth Cotten medley. Thanks to Matt Schofield for the Garcia lyrics.

Come all you good time friends of mine
Come all you good time friends of mine
When I had a dollar you treated me just fine
Where did you go when I only had a dime

Make me a pallet on your floor
Make me a pallet on your floor
Make it long, make it low, so [my good gal'll] never know
Make me a pallet on your floor

These blues is everywhere I see
These blues is everywhere I see
Blues everywhere around me, they're everywhere I see
Nobody's having blues like me

Make me a pallet on your floor
Make me a pallet on your floor
Make it long, make it low, so [my good gal'll] never know
Make me a pallet on your floor

Make me a pallet on your floor
Make me a pallet on your floor
Make it long, make it low, so [my good gal'll] never know
Make me a pallet on your floor
