Verse 1
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"

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

Verse 2
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


A7  D7  A7  E7  D7  A7

Verse 3
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


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.
