(1) this is as Hunter has the lyrics in "Box Of Rain", but the sheet music has "Come back steppin' like to walk on air." It's almost impossible to distinguish which Garcia sings, but I'll believe "step." (2) Hunter has "Here's my half a dollar ..." and that's what Garcia sings in early performances (eg 28 Feb 1973 on Dick's Picks 28). But sometime later Garcia changed it to "a half a dollar" - eg on "Wake Of The Flood."

Lyrics

Julie catch a rabbit by his hair
Come back step, like to walk on air (note 1)
Get back home where you belong
And don't you run off no more

Don't hang your head, let the two-time roll
Grass shack nailed to a pine wood floor
Ask the time baby I don't know
Come back later, gonna let it show

And I say row, Jimmy, row
Gonna get there, I don't know
Seems a common way to go
Get down and row, row, row, row, row

Here's a half a dollar if you dare (note 2)
Double twist when you hit the air
Look at Julie down below
The levee doing the dopaso

Broken heart don't feel so bad
You ain't got half of what you thought you had Rock your baby to and fro
Not too fast and not too slow

That's the way it's been in town
Ever since they tore the
