Grateful Dead

You Win Again

Lyrics By: Hank Williams
Music By: Hank Williams

The news is out, all over town
That you've been seen out running round
I know that I should leave but then (note 1)
I just can't go, Lord, you win again

This heart of mine could never see
What everybody knows but me
Just trusting you was my great sin
I just can't go, Lord, you win again

This heart of mine could never see
What everybody knows but me
Just trusting you was my great sin
I just can't go, Lord, you win again

This heart of mine could never see
What everybody knows but me
Just trusting you was my great sin
What can I do, Lord, you win again
What can I do, Lord, you win again

Played by Jerry Garcia with the Grateful Dead for a brief period in 1971-72, but then dropped. A JGB version was recorded in 1976 at the time of "Reflections" but never played live. Revived by The Dead with Bob Dylan in 2003.

(1) in some early versions, Jerry sings the line "Just trusting you was my great sin" here.
