Uncle John's Band


by The Grateful Dead
I:	( G - D - / C - D - / x2  //)

Well the first days are the hardest days, donít you worry anymore
ĎCause when life looks like Easy Street, there is danger at your door
Think this through with me, let me know you mind
Wo, oh, what I want to know is, are you kind?

G - - - /    / C - - / G - - - / x4 / Am - - - / Em - - - /
C - - - / D - - - - / C - - D / G - - Am / G - D - / G - - - /    /   //

Itís a buck dancerís choice my friend, better take my advice
You know all the rules by now and the fire from the ice
Will you come with me?  Wonít you come with me?
Wo, oh, what I want to know: will you come with me?

   B:	God dam, well I declare, have you seen the like?
Their walls are built of cannonballs
Their motto is: ďDonít tread on meĒ

G - - - / C - - - / Am - G Am / D - - - / C - - - /    / G - D - / C - D - //

 C1:	Come hear Uncle Johnís Band, playing to the tide
Come with me or go alone, heís come to take his children home

G - - - / - - C - - / Am - G - / D - - - / C - - - /    / G - D - / C - D - / x2 // (Intro) 

Itís the same story the crow told me, itís the only one he know
Like the morning sun you come and like the wind you go
Ainít no time to hate, barely time to wait
Wo, oh, what I want to know: where does the time go?

I live in a silver mine and I call it Beggarís Tomb
I got me a violin and I beg you call the tune
Anybodyís choice, I can hear your voice
Wo, oh, what I want to know: how does the song go?

 C2:	Come hear Uncle Johnís Band by the riverside
Got some things to talk about here beside the rising tide
 C1:	Come hear Uncle Johnís Band, playing to the tide
Come on along me or go alone, heís come to take his children home

  T:	Wo, oh, what I want to know: how does the song go?

( Dm7 - - - / - - C /  x2  / x2 / x2 / Dsus2 - - - - - /)
CaddD - - - /     /    / G - - - //

 C2:	Come hear Uncle Johnís Band by the riverside
Got some things to talk about here beside the rising tide

 C1:	Come hear Uncle Johnís Band, playing to the tide
Come on along me or go alone, heís come to take his children home

  T:	( Dm7 - - - / - - C /  x2  / Dsus2 - - - - - /)
