Me And My Uncle

John Denver

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

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

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

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

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

instrumental verse

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

I hope you all enjoyed that on.
