Check out this cool Lyle Lovett tune...can anybody help me out with the
words in the last verse, some of those names are a bit hard to catch

Family Reserve - Lyle Lovett

C                        F
When I saw the ambulance screaming down Main Street
C                  G
I didn't give it a thought
But it was my Uncle Eugene
   F                   C    G  C
He died on October the 2nd, 1981

And my Uncle Wilbur
They all called him Skinner
C                             G
And they said for his younger ways
He'd get drunk in the morning
And show me the rolls of fifties and hundreds
   C                            G        C
He kept in the glove box of his old grey Impala

                 C#min     G            C
Chorus:	And we're all gonna be here forever
	So Mama don't you make such a stir
	Put down that camera
	And come on and join up
            C           G      C
	The last of the family reserve

C                    F
Now my second cousin his name was Calloway
   C                            G
He died when he'd barely turned two
            C                F
And it was peanut butter and jelly what did it
    C               G            C
The help she didn't know what to do
                              G               C
She just stood there and she watched him turn blue


C                           F
And my friend Brian Temple he thought he could make it
   C                      G
So from the third story he jumped
And he missed the swimming pool
But only by inches
    C        G           C
And everyone said he was drunk


C                                              F
And there was great Uncle Julius and there was Aunt Annie Miller
    C                  G
And Mary and Grandaddy Paul
              C                   F
And there was Hannah and Ella and Alvin and Attic
    C            G           C
And he owned his own funeral home

C                                F
And there are more I remember and more I could mention
     C                           G
Than words I could write in this song
      C                      F
But I feel them watching and I see them laughing
    C              G        C
And I, I hear them singing along


There you go...Keep an eye out, more Lovett tunes to come
