Gordon Lightfoot - Uncle Toad Said


CAPO: 6th Fret



[INTRO:] C   F C   G C   F C  G

[VERSE 1:]
C                                   F
Uncle Toad sitting by the old south gate 
C                                        G
Waiting them boys, they been staying out late 
C                                     F
Uncle Toad thinks they are way out of line 
C                               G     C   F
Maybe they think he is past his prime


[CHORUS:]
G
Uncle Toad said, "Better straighten up right" 
     C                                           F C   G C   
When Uncle Toad spoke it was not a pretty sight


[VERSE 2:]
C                                F
Uncle Toad lived in the wood out back 
C                               G
Lived in the shade of a utility shack 
C                             F
He looked in at the big brick house 
C                          G      C   F
At the girls as quiet as a mouse


[CHORUS:]
G
Uncle Toad said, "You had best get it right" 
     C                                           F C   G C   
When Uncle Toad spoke it was not a pretty sight


[VERSE 3:]
C                                F
Uncle Toad tucked in the compost pile 
C                                 G
Out by the back door, look at him smile 
C                                F
He said, "Kid stop drinking that brew 
C                                   G     C   F
Plan while you can or the joke's on you"


[CHORUS:]
G
Uncle Toad said, "Better straighten up right" 
     C                                           F C   G C   
When Uncle Toad spoke it was not a pretty sight


[VERSE 4:]
C                                  F
Uncle Toad sitting by the swimming pool 
C                                      G
Sits in the sun when the weather turns cool 
C                                   F
Sits in the sun when the girls walk by 
C                                  G     C   F
Maybe they think he's a little bit sly


[CHORUS:]
G
Uncle Toad said, "You had best get it right" 
     C                                           F C   G C   F C   G C
When Uncle Toad spoke it was not a pretty sight


[VERSE 5:]
C                                   F
Uncle Toad sitting by the cool mill race 
C                               G
All day long with a grin on his face 
C                                 F
He said, "Boys you had better not try 
C                                       G     C   F
Kissing 'em girls, 'cause I won't stand by"


[CHORUS:]
G
Uncle Toad said, "Better straighten up right" 
     C                                           F C   G C   
When Uncle Toad spoke it was not a pretty sight


[VERSE 6:]
C                                      F
Uncle Toad sitting by the wrought iron fence 
C                                    G
Looks at the moon like it don't make sense 
C                                F
We say, "Toad, here's looking at you 
C                           G     C   F
Hoping you'll get your wish too"


[CHORUS:]
G
Sway to the left, sway to the right 
     C                                          
When Uncle Toad spoke it was not a pretty sight

[OUTRO:]    (## repeat to end ##)
