Had to learn the hard way

As I was walking ’round Grosvenor Square
Not a chill to the winter, but a nip to the air
From the other direction she was calling my eye
It could be an illusion, but I might as well try
Might as well try

She had rings on her fingers and bells on her shoes
And I knew without asking she was into the blues
She wore scarlet begonias, tucked into her curls
I knew right away she was not like other girls
Other girls

Well there ain’t nothing wrong with the way that she moves
Scarlet begonias, or a touch of the blues
And there’s nothing wrong with the look that’s in her eyes
I had to learn the hard way to let her pass by
Let her pass by

Scarlet Begonias

Keller Williams’ version

[Jerry Garcia’s guitar solo starting at the 3 minute mark of the above, is IMO, one of the most sublimely beautiful in all of rock and roll history]
