Tennessee Jed
Composer: Jerry Garcia / Robert Hunter

Tennessee Jed was first performed by the Grateful Dead in October 1971. It was then played during every year, except 1975, through to 1995. In total the Grateful Dead performed the song well over 400 times.

Robert Hunter comments on the writing of this song in Box Of Rain: Lyrics 1965 - 1993;

Tennessee Jed originated in Barcelona, Spain. Topped up on vino tinto, I composed it aloud to the sound of a jaw harp twanged between echoing building faces by someone strolling half a block ahead of me in the late summer twilight.
