Grateful Dead - Me & My Uncle lyrics

Me and my uncle went riding down South Colorado, West Texas bound We stopped over in Santa Fe That being the point, just about half way And you know it was the hottest part of the day I took the horses up to the stall Went to the barroom, ordered drinks for all Three days in the saddle, you know my body hurt It being summer, I took off my shirt And I tried to wash off some of that dusty dirt West Texas cowboys, well they was all around With liquor and money, they loaded down So soon after payday, know it seemed a shame You know my uncle, he starts a friendly game High-low jack and the winner take the hand (Guess you know about that) My uncle starts winning, cowboys got sore One of them called him, and then two more Accused him of cheating, oh no, it couldn't be I know my uncle, he's as honest as me And I'm as honest as a gambling man can be, that's me One of them cowboys, he starts to draw And I shot him down, Lord, he never saw Well I grabbed a bottle, cracked him in the jaw Shot me another, oh damn, he won't grow old In the confusion, my uncle grabbed the gold And we high-tailed it down to Mexico I love those cowboys, I love their gold I loved my uncle, God rest his soul Taught me good, Lord, taught me all I know Taught me so well, well, I grabbed that gold And I left his dead a** there by the side of the road
