Uncle Lloyd  Darrell Scott






 


 VERSE 1


 He was [(G)]not my father’s brother


 But he wished that [(F)]he could [(C)]be


 Told us [(F)]kids to call him uncle


 And we would [(D)]be his fam[(C)]ily


 He had a [(G)]wife and kids in Fresno


 The youngest one was [(F)]twenty-f[(C)]our


 Dad had b[(F)]rought him into our house


 They didn’t [(D)]want him an[(C)]ymore


 


 VERSE 2


 He helped us [(G)]work the family business


 Building fences [(F)]in the s[(C)]un


 Worked just [(F)]like a man of twenty


 ‘Til the wo[(D)]rking day was[(C)] done


 He and [(G)]Dad would spend their evening


 Sitting in lawn chairs [(F)]in the y[(C)]ard


 Where they’d d[(F)]rink a toast to Seagram’s


 Seagram’s [(D)]never went down [(C)]hard


 


 CHORUS


 Won’t you [(G)]wake up Uncle Lloyd


 Got a lot of w[(F)]ork t[(C)]oday


 We’ll get [(F)]Don to make the coffee


 Load that [(D)]truck and be on your [(C)]way


 Friday [(G)]night you can drive to Vegas


 Maybe this time [(F)]you will [(C)]win


 Buy a t[(F)]railer by the river


 And you won’t [(D)]have to work [(C)]again


 


 VERSE 3


 He was s[(G)]leeping in the workroom


 With a mattress [(F)]on the f[(C)]loor


 When one n[(F)]ight I heard him crying


 As I passed ou[(D)]tside his [(C)]door


 He cried, "[(G)]Rita, girl I love you


 Rita, Darling pl[(F)]ease don’t[(C)] go


 I’ve tried h[(F)]ard to make you happy


 I’ve done ev[(D)]erything I k[(C)]now"


 


 VERSE 4


 Then I h[(G)]eard the bottle open


 The tipping up and [(F)]putting [(C)]down


 Heard the r[(F)]ustling of the covers


 Then he did not [(D)]make a so[(C)]und


 I thought of [(G)]thirty years of Rita


 Standing sternly [(F)]by his s[(C)]ide


 All the y[(F)]ears of hanging in there


 All the em[(D)]ptiness i[(C)]nside


 


 VERSE 6


 Then I t[(G)]hought of how their children


 Have children [(F)]of their[(C)] own


 And how a [(F)]man at fifty-seven


 Winds up living[(D)] so a[(C)]lone
