Played by Dylan with the Dead but not covered by the Dead on their own.

(1) sung as "shut the light, shut the door" on 4 July 1987.

(2) these two lines sung as something like "shut the wall, shut the door, [?exercise us off the floor]."

(3) sung as "we're gonna let it."

Lyrics

Close your eyes, close the door (note 1)
You don't have to worry any more
I'll be your baby tonight

Shut the light, shut the shade (note 2)
You don't have to be afraid
I'll be your baby tonight

Well, that mockingbird's gonna sail away
We're gonna forget it (note 3)
That big, fat moon is gonna shine like a spoon
But we're gonna let it, you won't regret it

Kick your shoes off, do not fear
Bring that bottle over here
I'll be your baby tonight

  • I'll Be Your Baby Tonight
