Grateful Dead - New, New Minglewood Blues lyrics

I was born in a desert Raised in a lion's den I was born in a desert Raised in a lion's den Well well, my number one occupation Is stealing women from their men (next 3 verses sung in ‘60s & early '70s) If you're ever in Memphis Better stop by Minglewood If you're ever in Memphis Better stop by Minglewood Well take a walk down town The women sure look good If you can't believe me Don't make it hard to believe in you If you can't believe me Don't make it hard to believe in you 'Cause we all need each other Well you know it's true I was born in a desert Raised in a lion's den I was born in a desert Raised in a lion's den Well my number one occupation Is stealing women from their men (following verses sung in mid '70s and later) Well, I'm a wanted man in Texas Busted jail and I'm gone for good Yes, I'm a wanted man in Texas Busted jail and I'm gone for good Well well, the sheriff couldn't catch me But his little girl sure wished she would Now, the doctor call me crazy Some says I am some says I ain't Yes and the doctor call me crazy Some says I am some says I ain't Yes and the preacher man call me a sinner But his little girl call me a saint Well, a couple of shots of whiskey Women ‘round here start looking good Yes and a couple of shots of whiskey Women ‘round here start looking good Couple more shots of whiskey I'm going down to Minglewood Yes, I was born in a desert Raised in a lion's den I was born in a desert Raised in a lion's den Yes and my number one occupation Is stealing women from their men And I'll do it, do it again Yes and my number one occupation Is stealing women from their men I was born in a desert Raised in a lion's den I was born in a desert Raised in a lion's den (additional live verse) It's T for Texas Yes and it's T for Timbuktu It's T for Texas Yes and it's T for Timbuktu Yes and it's T for [ insert city name] Where the little girls know what to do
