Me And My Uncle
(John Phillips)
Transcribed by: Scott Holcomb
Intro:
| /  /  /  / | /  /  /  / |
  Em           B    Em

Verse 1:
          G                 Em
Me and my uncle went riding down
         G                    Em
To south Colorado, west Texas bound.
           G             Em
We stopped over in Santa Fe.
               G                      A
That being the point, just about half-way.
    Em                  B                   Em
And you know it was the hottest part of the day.

Verse 2:
I took those horses up to the stall.
Went to the barroom, ordered drinks for all.
Three days in the saddle, you know my body hurt.
It being summer, I took off my shirt,
And I tried to wash off some of that dust and dirt.

Verse 3:
West Texas cowboys,they're all around.
With liquor and money, they were loaded down
So soon after payday, you know it seemed a shame.
You know my uncle, he starts a friendly game.
One-eyed Jacks and the winner takes the hand.

Verse 4:
My uncle starts winning, cowboys got sore.
One of them called him, and then two more.
Accused him of cheating, oh no, it couldn't be.
I know my uncle, and he's as honest as me.
And I'm as honest as a Denver man can be.

Verse 5:
One of the cowboys, he starts to draw,
But I shot him down, Lord, he never saw.
I shot me another, Hot Damn! he won't grow old.
In the confusion, my uncle grabbed the gold,
And we high-tailed it down to Mexico.

Verse 6:
I love those cowboys, I love their gold.
I love my uncle, God rest his soul.
He taught me good, Lord, he tought me all I know.
He taught me so wel, I grabbed that gold,
And I left his dead ass their by the side of the road.
