Jerome John Garcia and his acoustic band coax a jig out of this traditional number to open this 1987 performance at the Lunt-Fontanne Theater in New York City. Longtime Garcia collaborator Sandy Rothman’s mandolin is a treat.
A big electric fan to keep me cool while I sleep
A little baby boy plays around daddy’s feet
I’m a rambler & a gambler and I leave every night
Folks, I tell you I’m ragged but I’m right.
