Verse 1
A7
Went uptown to see my cousin 

Plays guitar, sounds like a chainsaw buzzin' 

In the crowd, I see his mom and dad 

I said "Hey, hey, Uncle, man your son is bad"

Chorus
    D7                          A7
But sometimes, sometimes bad is bad 
        E7                   D7                A7
I said “Cool is a rule, but, sometimes, bad is bad.”

Verse 2
A7
Across the street, a neon sign 

All you can eat for a dollar ninety nine 

“Our soul stew is the baddest in the land.” 

But one dollar's worth was all that I could stand

Chorus

Solo
A7  D7  A7  E7  D7  A7

Verse 3
A7
Back uptown to see Marie 

Nobody home, I opened the door with my key 

"I love you, Huey" was the note I read 

But there's a strange pair of shoes underneath the bed

chorus


This is my interpretation of the song and is what I hear. Since
U-G doesn't always include the correct chord voicings, I have
included all of them in this transcription. Please feel free to
experiment with your own chord voicings. 

Two versions of chords listed at the top of this song. Chords
shown at left are standard, while alternate chords shown at
right are jazz voicings. Play the one which sounds best to you,
or use your own.
