As Tears Go By
Composer: Mick Jagger / Keith Richards / Andrew Loog Oldham

An instrumental version of As Tears Go By was played by Jerry Garcia and David Grisman with the studio band during their appearance on The Late Show on September 15, 1993. The piece was played during a commercial break so only the start and ending were broadcast. Audio of this version circulates.

As Tears Go By was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards with a possible contribution from Andrew Loog Oldham, the Stones' manager. Oldham gave the song to Marianne Faithfull who released it on a single in June 1964. The song was subsequently recorded by the Rolling Stones.
