I believe the key of A works well with Row Jimmy but i also believe the key of D works aswell due to the Bmin and Gmaj chords in the songs progression

The verses are in D, the refrains are in A. The coda at the end starts in D and then the final part of the song is in A. (The parts with D, A G and Bmin are in D. The parts with A, E and D are in A.)

Hope this helps.

It is my opinion that Row Jimmy is maybe my personal fave of all the Dead's tunes. Just had to share that. Coming out of a solo and Jerry hits you with "Broken heart don't feel so bad..." come on now, how can that be topped?
