Difficulty

Artist: Loudon Wainwright III
Song: Black Uncle Remus
Album: Album II

This one was almost impossible, until I realized it was a 12 string. The C# doesn't 
quite right if you aren't playing one, but you can also hit the 6 and 8 fret on the high e string.
     -Tupelo's War

Verse Chords(intro part 1):E/G, G, C/F, D
Chorus   Chords   (part 2):C# (fingering on and off the G string. Alternatively you can 
Asus4/D and finger on and off the 3rd fret of the e string, or even play A major and 
on and off the rest of D major if you can manage that. I can't do it half as fast as LW3)

E/G
Black Uncle Remus sits in Central Square,
                                            G
Sombody flipped the Rocker of his Rocking Chair
C/F
When you got the whiskey habit
                              D
You don't talk about Bre'r Rabbit.

[Chorus, no words]

Black Uncle Remus got the death letter blues,
The Hellhound says it time to pay your dues
You really recall the Catfish catches
When you're living in the Briar Patches

[Chorus, no words]

Bridge
F#              G/D
Uncle Remus, he moans and he sings
                                  C
His tears have rusted his Banjo Strings
C/F
You call for Jesus or your ma maybe
                                         D
When you're life's gummed up in the tar baby

Chorus (finally with words)
Watcha gonna do, watcha gonna do,
Watcha gonna do when you're Black and Blue?

Watcha gonna do, watcha gonna do,
Watcha gonna do when you're Black and Blue?


---I know that it isn't really too much of a chorus, but it's not the verses and it 
repeating.
