"Midnight Moonlight" as written by and Steve Cropper Wilson Pickett....
If you ever feel lonesome when you're down in San Antone
Beg, steal or borrow two nickels or dime to call me on the phone
And I'll meet you at Alamo Mission, where we can say our prayers
The Holy Ghost and the Virgin Mother will heal us as we kneel there
In the moonlight, in the midnight, in the moonlight, midnight, moonlight
If you ever feel sorrow for the deeds you have done
With no hope for tomorrow in the setting of the sun
And the ocean is howling for the things that might have been
And that last good morning sunrise will be the brightest you've ever seen
In the moonlight, in the midnight, in the moonlight, midnight, moonlight

    General Commentthis is not by dead but rather by the band, Old and in the Way, which was composed of Jerry Garcia and David Grisman. Although Jerry is dead, you can still find David playing this song with his band, The David Grisman Quintet...as he will be playing at the Savannah Music Festival
