Grateful Dead

I Know It's A Sin

Lyrics By: Jimmy Reed
Music By: Jimmy Reed
Sung by Jerry Garcia with the Grateful Dead a few times in the late 1960s.

I know it's wrong, the things I do
The way that I mistreated you
But I know, oh-oh, it's a sin
It's a sin

My baby watched me from the side (note 1)
Then she hung her head and cried
But I know, oh-oh, it's a sin
It's a sin

My baby told me from the start
She said darling, you're breaking my heart
And I know, oh-oh, it's a sin
It's a sin

My baby told me from the start
She said darling, you're breaking my heart
And I know, oh-oh, it's a sin
It's a sin
