This is one of my favorite Grateful Dead songs. There are so many, it’s hard to pick a favorite really, but I’ve always loved this one. In particular, I love the part of the lyrics that say “She's got everything delightful, she's got everything I need, Takes the wheel when I'm seeing double, pays my ticket when I speed.” I guess I see myself in that I little, I’ve done both of those things. Also, "jump like a Willys in four wheel drive" reminds me of the old days when our mode of transportation was a Willys Jeep. The song was written by Robert Hunter and Bob Weir. It first appeared on their album “American Beauty.” It was a concert favorite, pretty much played at every Dead show.
