Me And My Uncle - Grateful Dead

Chorded by Egg Flipper

Standard Tuning

Am        C                 Am
Me and my uncle went ridin' down
            C               Am
South Color-ado, West Texas bound
           C             Am
We stopped over in Santa Fe
           C                     D
That point being just about half way
    C                   E                   Am
And you know it was the hottest part of the day

           C                Am
I took the horses up to the stall
            C                           Am
Went to the barroom, ordered drinks for all
                  C                        Am
Three days in the saddle, you know my body hurt
         C                     D
It bein' summer, I took off my shirt
      C                 E                  Am
And I tried to wash off some of that dusty dirt

           C                   Am
West Texas cowboys, they's all around
                C                     Am
With liquor and money, they're loaded down
              C                            Am
So soon after payday, you know it seemed a shame
            C                           D
You know my uncle, he starts a friendly game
C                     E               Am
High-low jack and the winner take the hand


Am              C                     Am
My uncle starts winnin' - cowboys got sore
            C                       Am
One of them called him and then two more
               C                             Am
Accused him of cheatin' - oh no, it couldn't be
          C                         D
I know my uncle - he's as honest as me
    C                  E              Am
And I'm as honest as a Denver man can be

            C                     Am
One of them cowboys, he starts to draw
           C                    Am
I shot him down, Lord, he never saw
          C                               Am       
Shot me a-nother, hot damn, he won't grow old
               C                           D
And in the con-fusion my uncle grabbed the gold
    C                 E            Am
And we high-tailed it down to Mexi-co

             C                     Am
I love those cowboys, I love their gold
           C                   Am
I loved my uncle, God rest his soul
             C                           Am
He taught me good, Lord, taught me all I know
             C                    D
Taught me so well, I grabbed that gold
      C                 E                        Am
And I left his dead-ass there by the side of the road
