Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo
(Garcia,Hunter)

 

Intro

C               E7
On the day when I was born
F                  Am
Daddy sat down and cried.
F                      C        G
I had the mark just as plain as day;
      D7             G7
Which could not be denied.
C                          E7
They say that Cain caught Abel
F              Am
Rollin' loaded dice;
F                C       G
Ace of Spades behind his ear
    F                 E7
And him not thinkin' twice.

Am
Halfstep, Mississippi uptown toodeloo
F                C         G
Hello, baby, I'm gone, goodbye
F             C        G
Half a cup of Rock and Rye.
F                   C        G
Farewell to you old Southern skies
    Am        E7
I'm on my way, on my way.


Am  Am/maj7  Am7   D9
F   Dm      B7    E7
Am  Am/maj7  Am7   D9
F   Am      D7    G7

If all you got to live for
Is what you left behind,
Get yourself a powder charge
And seal that silver mine.
Lost my boots in transit, babe,
A pile of smokin' leather.
I nailed a retread to my feet
And prayed for better weather.


They say that when your ship comes in,
The first man takes the sails;
The second takes the afterdeck,
The third the planks and rails
What's the point of callin' shots;
This cue ain't straight in line.
Cue ball's made of styrofoam
And no one's got the time.

 A             D          A              D
Across the Rio Grandeeo, Across the lazy river.
