Played intermittently by Jerry Garcia with the Grateful Dead throughout their career, sometimes with lyrics, sometimes without. The earliest versions are played much faster, and with different lyrics to the later versions. The recording on "Birth of the Dead" is credited as "traditional, arranged Grateful Dead."

Lyrics

An instrumental played by Howard Wales with Jerry Garcia

Nobody's fault but mine
Nobody's fault but mine
If I leave my love behind
Nobody's fault but mine

Had good love in my home
Had a good love in my home
If I leave my love behind
Nobody's fault but mine

Loves my sugar in my tea
Loves my sugar in my tea
If I leave my love behind
Nobody's fault but mine

Nobody's fault but mine
Nobody's fault but mine
If I leave my love behind
Nobody's fault but mine

Love will cry when I leave
Love will cry when I leave
If I leave my love behind
Nobody's fault but mine

Nobody's fault but mine
Nobody's fault but mine
If I leave my love behind
Nobody's fault but mine
