Me And My Uncle Lyrics – Joni Mitchell

Me And My Uncle Lyrics by Joni Mitchell

Me and my uncle went ridin’ down
From Colorado, west Texas bound
And we stopped off in Santa Fe
It bein’ the place about half way

And besides it was the hottest part of the day
We led our ponies into a stall
Went to the bar, boys, bought drinks for all
Two days in the saddle, my body hurt

It being summer, took off my shirt
And I tried to wash off some of that dusty dirt
West Texas cowboys, all over town
With gold and silver, they’re loaded down

Just in from roundup, it seemed a shame
And so my uncle starts a friendly game
Now it’s hollow jack and winner take the game
From the beginning, uncle starts to win

Them Texas cowboys, they was mad as sin
Some say he’s cheatin’, that can’t be
‘Cause my uncle, he’s as honest as me
And I’m as honest as a Denver gal can be

One Texas cowboy, he starts to draw
I grabbed a bottle, slapped him on the jaw
I shot another, he won’t grow old
In the confusion, uncle grabbed the gold

And we hightailed it down to Mexico
Now God bless cowboys, and God bless gold
God bless my uncle, and rest his soul
He taught me well boys, taught me all I know

Taught me so well, boys, I grabbed that gold
And I left him lyin’ there, I left him lyin’ there
I left him lyin’ there by the side of the road
