Overseas Stomp
Composer: Traditional / Will Shade / Jab Jones

Overseas Stomp was performed a handful of times by the Grateful Dead in 1966 and 1967.

Originally recorded in Memphis by the Memphis Jug Band on September 11, 1928 using the title Overseas Stomp. These recordings were released in 1928 or 1929 as both Lindberg Hop and Overseas Stomp. Both titles have subsequently been used on other recordings of the song.

The song was released on the semi-legal Grateful Dead release, Historic Dead, as Lindy. This title is used on Dead setlists and tapes but not in any non-Dead reference to the song.
