Notes

Lead vocals - Garcia.

Most commonly used name for this song is See That My Grave Is Kept Clean. Also sometimes known as Two White Horses In A Line and occasionally as Dig My Grave With A Silver Spade.

The One Kind Favor title is used here due to the use of that title on a Garcia LP.

Recordings that use the title See That My Grave Is Kept Clean often give writing credit to Blind Lemon Jefferson but it was an existing "folk spiritual" that Jefferson learnt as Two White Horses In A Line.

One of the Dylan/Band (Hawks) Basement Tapes songs.
