The Grateful Dead played this a few times in 1972 and once with the Neville Brothers in 1986.

The Grateful Dead's own versions are often no more than a few repetitions of "Hey Bo Diddley-dee" included within "Not Fade Away." But Jerry Garcia sang a bit more on 23 May 1972.`

Lyrics

Bo Diddley, Bo Diddley, have you heard?
My pretty baby said she was a bird
Bo Diddley, Bo Diddley, where you been?
Round the world, gonna go again

Hey Bo Diddley-dee
Hey Bo Diddley-dee
Hey Bo Diddley-dee
Hey Bo Diddley-dee
