    How about ďAinít No Bugs On MeĒ? If I remember right Dawg did the tune, along with Jerry Garcia.

    Frankdolin, the Red Peter tune is not particularly clever in my opinion, just crass.

    I saw Bruce do that tune maybe half a dozen times, every time it would raise the hair on the back of my neck! I miss his stage presence and his after the show “approachability”. He made a kid of 17 feel as much a part of the group as if I’d been playing for thirty years! I really thought his old Guild F-50 was one fabulous guitar too!

    This is a favorite, and would adjust nicely to a bluegrass treatment.

    Thanks Hobotom!
    “Once I had a yeller Dog, his name was Towser Jenkins.
    The butcher cut his tail off with a cleaver.
    Towser had his mark on every dog in town,
    And once he’d had his bite, he’d never leave her.”
    Great song!
