Uncle John's Band

Grateful Dead


 GCG
Oh, the first days are the hardest days, don't you worry any more,
 GCG
'Cause when life looks like Easy Street there is danger at your door.
 AmEmCD
Think this through with me; let me know your mind.
 CDGDCGDG
Whoa-oh, what I want to know-oh, is are you kind.
 GCG
 It's a buck dancer's choice, my friend, better take my advice;
 GCG
You know all the rules by now, and the fire from the ice.
 AmEmCD
 Will you come with me, won't you come with me?
 CDGDCGDG
 Whoa-oh, what I want to know-oh, will you come with me?

 GCGAmGD
 God damn! well I declare!  Have you seen the like?
 DCGDCD
 Their walls are built of cannonballs, their motto is "Don't tread on me".
 GCAmGD
 Come hear Uncle John's band playing by the riverside,
 CGDCD
 Got some things to talk about, here beside the rising tide.

G Bm C D G Bm C D G Bm C D G Bm C D

 GCG
 It's the same story the crow told me, it's the only one he knows;
 GCG
 Like the morning sun you come, and like the wind you go.
 AmEmCD
  Ain't no time to hate, barely time to wait.
 CDGDCGDG
 Whoa-oh, what I want know-oh, where does the time go?
 GCG
 I live in a silver mine and I call it Beggar's Tomb;
 GCG
 I've got me a violin and I beg you, call a tune.
 AmEmCD
 Anybody's choice, I can hear your voice.
 CDGDCGDG
 Whoa-oh, what I want to know-oh, how does the song go?

 GCAmGD
 Come hear Uncle John's band by the riverside
 CGDCD
 Got some things to talk about here beside the rising tide.
 GCAmGD
 Come hear Uncle John's band playing to the tide
 CGDCD
 Come on along or go alone, he's come to take his children home.

Dm G C Dm G C Dm G C Dm G C

 CDGDCGDG
 Whoa-oh, what I want to know-oh, how does the song go?

(A capella)
Come hear Uncle John's band by the riverside

Got some things to talk about, here beside the rising tide.
 GCAmGD
 Come here Uncle John's band playing to the tide,
 CGDCD
Come on along or go alone, he's come to take his children home.
