Hesitation Blues

(Jerry Garcia version)

Original Words & Music:

Art “The Whispering Pianist” Dillham

Arr. Jerry Garcia

 

This was played once by Garcia with Grisman in 1992, and recorded on Shady Grove as a bonus, hidden track (after the final track listed on the CD).

 

Am            E            Am             E

Look down the road just as far as I could see.

  Am         E             C         C7

A man had my woman and the blues had me.

         F       F6            C

Tell me, how long do I have to wait?

        C            D7 G        F  G C

Oh, can I get you now, or must I hesitate?

 

I ain't no doctor but the doctor's son.

Can't do the doctor 'til the doctor's done.

Tell me, how long must I have to wait?

Can I get you now, or must I hesitate?

 

I got the hesitation stockings, the hesitation shoes.

Oh my Lord, I got the hesitation blues.

Tell me, how long do I have to wait?

Can I get you now, or must I hesitate?

Can I get you now, or must I hesitate?
