Try Me, Little Girl

Try me, little girl.
Let's have ourselves a family.
Be with me, not them.

"Try Me, Little Girl" is a suggestion to get together with the singer and raise a family. It's from volume 11 of the Bootleg Series, which compiles the complete (?) recordings of the informal 1967 Basement Tapes sessions that he did with the Band. The lyrics mostly make sense, but here and there they break down into syllabic silliness for the sake of speeding through the song.
