Me and My Uncle
John Phillips/John Denver     (klr)

[Am] Me and my Uncle went a ridin down
>From Colo [C] rado, West Texas [E] bound
We stopped [Am] over in Sante Fe,
Part it [C] being  about half [E] way
[Am] Besides it was the [E] hottest part of the [Am] day

[Am] We led our ponies into the stall
Went to a [C] bar boys bought drinks for [E] all
Two days in the [Am] saddle, my body hurt
It being [C] summer, I took off my [E] shirt
And [Am] tried to wash off [E] some of that dusty [Am] dirt

[Am] West Texas cowboys all over town
With gold and [C] silver, they're loaded [E] down
Just in from [Am] round up you know it seemed a shame
So my [C] Uncle starts a friendly [E] game
A [Am] hollow jack the [E] winner takes the [Am] gain

[Am] From the beginning my Uncle started to win
Them Texas [C] cowboys they was as mad as [E] sin
Some said he's [Am] cheatin', ah but that can't be
Because my [C] Uncle, he's as honest as [E] me
And [Am] I'm about as honest as a [E] Denver man can [Am] be

[Am] One of them cowboys you know he started to draw
I grabbed a [C] bottle, slapped him on the [E] jaw
I had to shoot [Am] another, now he won't grow old
In the [C] confusion, my Uncle grabbed the [E] gold
And [Am] we hightailed it [E] down to Mexi [Am]co
...Mexico...way down to Mexico

instrumental verse

[Am] God bless cowboys, God bless gold
God bless my [C] Uncle, God rest his [E] soul
He taught me [Am] well Lord, taught me all I know
Taught me so [C] well, that I grabbed the [E] gold
[Am] Left him lying [E] there by the side of the [Am] road

I hope you all enjoyed that on.
