Tennessee Jed (5:57)

Cover of Electric Dirt

Tennessee Jed is a classic composition by Robert Hunter and Jerry Garcia and was part of the Grateful Dead’s repertoire for most of their career. The “post-Dead” bands such as Bob Weir’s RatDog and Phil Lesh and Friends have also made this a regular song.

    I'd like to think that Garcia and Hunter would have approved

    This is even better than the Grateful Dead original, which is pretty good.

    This is what real folk music evolved to. I'm so glad I was around when they were playing.

    It sounds that those that are spiritualy called unto Tennesse whit out it being a prayer for them to do so, should hurry on back to Tennesse! Reguardless if their name be Jed!
