She Belongs To Me

Lyrics: Bob Dylan
Music: Bob Dylan

Played by the Grateful Dead on at least one occasion in 1966, and then revived briefly in 1985.

She's got everything she needs, she's an artist, she don't look back
She's got everything she needs, she's an artist, she don't look back
She can take the dark out of the night time
And paint the daytime black

You will start out standing, proud to steal her anything she sees (note 1)
You will start out standing, proud to steal her anything she sees
But you will wind up peeking through a key hole
Down upon your knees (note 2)

She wears an Egyptian ring, that sparkles before she speaks (note 3)
She wears an Egyptian ring, that sparkles before she speaks
She's a hypnotist collector
You are a walking antique

She never stumbles, she's got no place to fall
She never stumbles, she's got no place to fall
She's nobody's child
The law can't touch her at all

Bow down to her on Sunday, salute her when her birthday comes
Bow down to her on Sunday, salute her when her birthday comes
For Halloween buy her a trumpet
And for Christmas, get her a drum (note 4)

She's got everything she needs, she's an artist, she don't look back
She's got everything she needs, she's an artist, she don't look back
She can take the dark out of the night time
And paint the daytime black

She can take the dark out of the night time
And paint the daytime black
Notes

(2) the original Dylan version is "Down upon your bended knees"
(3) Jerry misses out this verse in the version on "Postcards Of The Hanging"
