Valerie by Grateful Dead Valerie Run For The Roses (Garcia/Hunter) F C Hey Valerie, Baby what's the matter with you? F C I did all of the things that you wanted me to Bm walk up Gm F C I went downtown with my pocket knife, Gm F C Cut your other man, but I spared his life Gm F C Valerie won't you be good to me? Hey Valerie, Baby what's the matter with you? Come on, come Baby, and tell me true Hey now Baby, what did I do? I shot my dog 'cause he growled at you Valerie won't you be good to me? G C Valerie what's the matter with me? F C I never ever done you no wrong G C F I sing the blues nearly all night long. G C Valerie what the matter with me? F C You know I'd do anything that you'd say Gm F C I can't understand why you tell me "Please go 'way" I ain't afraid of the cold, cruel world outside No chicken little running from a falling sky The only thing trouble's me is you. If you leave me what will I do? Valerie won't you be good to me? You got me down on the knees of my shaking feet Can't play the blues 'cause for you I drop the beat Valerie what your complaint? I try to be everything I ain't Valerie won't you be good to me?
