How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)

How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you

I needed the shelter of someone's arms
And there you were
I needed someone to undestand my ups and downs
There you were
With sweet love and devotion
Deeply touching my emotion
I want to stop, and thank you baby
I want to stop, and thank you baby
How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you

I open my eyes at night
I wonder what I would be without you in my life
Everything was such a bore
All the things I've done you know I've done 'em before
But you brightened up all of my days
With your love so sweet in so many ways
I want to stop and thank you baby
I want to stop and thank you baby
How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you

I open my eyes at night
I wonder what I would be without you in my life
Everything was such a bore
All the things I've done you know I've done 'em before
But you brightened up all of my days
With your love so sweet in so many ways
I want to stop and thank you baby
I want to stop and thank you baby
How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you

Played only once by the Grateful Dead, but a staple of Jerry Garcia's solo bands from 1972 to 1995. The lyrics to all the versions were very similar:
