Thirty Days
Composer: Chuck Berry

The Grateful Dead performed part of this song during a soundcheck in December 1973 but never performed it live.

Thirty Days was the A-side of the second Chuck Berry single. It was written as a follow-up to Maybellene.

Ronnie Hawkins recorded the song in 1959 as Forty Days and changed the lyrics accordingly. Some later recordings also use this title.
