China Doll

Music By Jerry Garcia
Words By Robert Hunter

Released June 1974

A pistol shot at five o'clock The bells of heaven ring Tell me what you done it for No I won't tell you a thing Yesterday I begged you Before I hit the ground All I leave behind me Is only what I found If you can abide it Let the hurdy gurdy play Stranger ones have come by here Before they flew away I will not condemn you Nor yet would I deny I would ask the same of you But failing, will not die Take up your china doll It's only fractured Just a little nervous from the fall La la la la la la la
