Grateful Dead

Baby What You Want Me To Do

Lyrics By: Jimmy Reed
Music By: Jimmy Reed

You got me running, you got me hiding,
You got me running, hiding, hiding, running,
Anywhere you want it, let it roll, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Hey, you got me where you want me, baby doing what you want me to do.

Going up, going down, going up, down, down, up,
Anyway you want it, let it roll, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Yeah, you got me where you want me, baby doing what you want me to do.

I say, honey baby, honey you don't have to go,
I'm going to pack my bag, baby, down that road I go,
Roll on, roll on baby, honey what is wrong with you?
Now baby, baby, baby,...
Oh baby, honey what is wrong with you?
You don't treat your baby, treat me like you used to do.

A Jimmy Reed song, sung by Brent Mydland with the Grateful Dead a few times in the mid 1980s. Also played with guests on a couple of earlier occasions, and by Jerry Garcia with Merl Saunders in the early 1970s.
