U.S. Blues

Red and white, blue suede shoes,
I'm Uncle Sam, how do you do?
Gimme five, I'm still alive,
Ain't no luck, I learned to duck.
Check my pulse, it don't change.
Stayed seventy-two, come shine or rain.
Wave the flag, pop a bag,
Rock the boat, skin the goat.

 Wave that flag, wave it wide and high.
Summertime done, come and gone, my, oh, my.

 I'm Uncle Sam, that's who I am;
Been hidin' out, in a rock and roll band.
Shake the hand, that shook the hand
Of P.T. Barnum, and Charlie Chan.
Shine your shoes, light your fuse.
Can you use them ol' U.S. Blues?
I'll drink your health, share your wealth,
Run your life, steal your wife.

 Wave that flag….

 Solo

 Back to back, chicken shack.
Son of a gun, better change your act.
We're all confused, what's to lose?
You can call this song the United States Blues

 Wave that flag….
Summertime done, come and gone, my, oh, my.
