[Verse]

  G                                                  C        G
Oh, the first days are the hardest days, don't you worry any more,
  G                                                C             G
'Cause when life looks like Easy Street there is danger at your door.
 Amin                  Emin  C                D
Think this through with me; let me know your mind.
 C    D          G       D   C  G    D       G
Whoa-oh, what I want to know-oh, is are you kind.
 G                                              C       G
It's a buck dancer's choice, my friend, better take my advice;
 G                                      C             G
You know all the rules by now, and the fire from the ice.
 Amin             Emin  C                  D
Will you come with me, won't you come with me?
 C   D           G       D   C    G    D        G
Whoa-oh, what I want to know-oh, will you come with me?


[Refrain]

 G                  C G    Amin      G        D
God damn! well I declare!  Have you seen the like?
 D     C                                     G    D          C       D
Their walls are built of cannonballs, their motto is "Don't tread on me".
 G                      C    Amin   G       D
Come hear Uncle John's band playing by the riverside,
 C                              G       D       C      D
Got some things to talk about, here beside the rising tide.

[Verse]

 G                                             C            G
It's the same story the crow told me, it's the only one he knows;
 G                                  C                G
Like the morning sun you come, and like the wind you go.
Amin             Emin   C              D
Ain't no time to hate, barely time to wait.
 C    D          G    D    C    G    D        G
Whoa-oh, what I want know-oh, where does the time go?
G                              C                G
I live in a silver mine and I call it Beggar's Tomb;
G                          C               G
I've got me a violin and I beg you, call a tune.
Amin       Emin   C                D
Anybody's choice, I can hear your voice.
 C   D           G       D   C    G    D       G
Whoa-oh, what I want to know-oh, how does the song go?


[Refrain]

 G                      C    Amin   G       D
Come hear Uncle John's band by the riverside
 C                             G       D      C       D

 G                      C  Amin     G    D
Come hear Uncle John's band playing to the tide
 C                               G       D        C        D
Come on along or go alone, he's come to take his children home.

Come hear Uncle John's band by the riverside



[Chorus/Outro]

Got some things to talk about, here beside the rising tide.
 G                      C    Amin   G      D
Come here Uncle John's band playing to the tide,
 C                               G       D        C        D
Come on along or go alone, he's come to take his children home.
Dmin    G    C    Dmin G    C    Dmin G    C    Dsus2

So, this looks like chords for a left hand strung guitar.
