Played by Jerry in acoustic sets with the Grateful Dead, and also with the Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band and in sets with John Kahn. This is the version with the Dead on "Reckoning": With the Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band, Jerry started with the "One old woman ..." verse, followed with the "Been all around ..." verse, and then repeated the "One old woman ..."verse The sheet music in the Jerry Garcia Songbook has a couple of differences in the lyrics, but I don't think they match with what Jerry sang: Keep a-telling her lies all week You know this lie I'm living is flying by

Lyrics

Been all around this whole round world
And I just got back today
Work all week, honey, I get home to you
Honey baby what more can I do

Oh babe, it ain't no lie
Oh babe, it ain't no lie
Oh babe, it ain't no lie
You know this life I'm living is mighty high

One old woman, Lord, in this town
Keep a-telling her lies on me
Wish to my soul that old woman would die
Keep a-telling her lies on me

Oh babe, it ain't no lie
Oh babe, it ain't no lie
Oh babe, it ain't no lie
You know this life I'm living is very high

Been all around this whole round world
And I just got back today
Work all week, honey, and I get home to you
Honey baby what more can I do

Oh babe, it ain't no lie
Oh babe, it ain't no lie
Oh babe, it ain't n

  • Oh Babe, It Ain't No Lie
