One of Pigpen's songs played with the Dead in the early 1970s:

Lyrics

Take it, you can have it
What I got baby I can't hold
If you find the secret
Tell me how to build a mold

And I can't handle your problems
So don't try to handle mine
Get yourself a shotgun a pocket full of shells
And we can while away the time

Look up at the wall, do it right
If you make a mistake, you're gonna pay for it twice
But if you need it, got to have it
Get yourself a shotgun and bring it back home
Look up at the wall, you know you gotta crawl
Before you start crawling get ready to fall
And if you fall in my direction
Don't expect no help at all

Get it right, do it nice
But if you make a mistake you're gonna pay for it twice
But if you need it, gotta have it
Get yourself a shotgun and bring it back home
Look up the walls
You know you gotta crawl
But if you start calling you're ready to fall
And if you fall in my direction
Don't expect no help at all
Don't expect no help at all
Don't expect no help at all
And if you fall in my direction
Don't expect no help at all

    Tell me how to build a mold

    And I can't handle your problems
    So don't try to handle mine
    Get yourself a shotgun a pocket full of shells

    If you make a mistake, you're gonna pay for it twice
    But if you need it, got to have it
    Get yourself a shotgun and bring it back home
    Look up at the wall, you know you gotta crawl
    Before you start crawling get ready to fall
    And if you fall in my direction
    Don't expect no help at all

    Get it right, do it nice
    But if you make a mistake you're gonna pay for it twice
    But if you need it, gotta have it
    Get yourself a shotgun and bring it back home
    Look up the walls
    You know you gotta crawl
    But if you start calling you're ready to fall
    And if you fall in my direction
    Don't expect no help at all
    Don't expect no help at all
    Don't expect no help at all
    And if you fall in my direction
    Don't expect no help at all
