Uncle John's Band

In the style of

The Grateful Dead

Lyrics

well the first days
are the hardest days
don't you worry
anymore

'cause when life
looks like easy street
there is danger
at your door

think this through
with me
let me know
you're mine
woh oh
what i want to know
is are you kind

it's a buck
dancer's choice
my friends
better take my advice
you know
all the rules by now
and the fire
from the ice

will you come with me
won't you come
with me
woh oh
what i want to know
will you come with me

g##damn
well i declare
have you seen the like
their walls are built
of cannonballs
their motto is
don't tread on me

come hear
uncle john's band
playing to the tide
come with me
or go alone
he's come to take
his children home

it's the same story
the crow told me
it's the only one
he know

like the mornin' sun
you come
and like the wind
you go

ain't no time to hate
barely time to wait
woh oh
what i want to know
where does
the time go

i live in a silver mine
and i call it
beggar's tomb
i got me a violin
and i beg you
call the tune

anybody's choice
i can hear your voice
woh oh
what i want to know
how does the song go

come hear
uncle john's band
by the riverside
got some things
to talk about
here beside
the rising tide

come hear
uncle john's band
playing to the tide
come on along
or go alone
he's come to take
his children home

woh oh
what i want to know
how does the song go

come hear
uncle john's band
by the riverside
got some things
to talk about
here beside
the rising tide

come hear
uncle john's band
playing to the tide
come on along
or go alone
he's come to take
his children home

duh duh duh
duh duh duh
duh duh duh
duh duh duh
duh duh duh
duh duh duh
