Cathy's Clown

Lyrics: Don and Phil Everly
Music: Don and Phil Everly

This was apparently played during two Dead shows billed as Bobby Ace And The Cards From The Bottom Of The Deck (on 6/11/69 and 4/17/70). No tapes of these shows circulate. It was reportedly also played at the Hell's Angels benefit on 11/23/70, though it does not appear in the DeadBase list.

Chorus
Don't want your love any more
Don't want your kisses that's for sure
I die each time I hear the sound
Here he comes, that's Cathy's clown

I gotta stand tall
You know a man can't crawl
For when he knows he's telling lies
And he lets them pass on by
He's not a man at all

[chorus]

When you see me shed a tear
And when you know that it's sincere
Don't you think it's kind of sad
That you're treating me so bad
Or don't you even care

[chorus]
