Me & My Uncle (Remastered LP Version) - Grateful Dead (感恩而死)

Me and my uncle went ridin' down


South Colorado West Texas bound


We stopped over in Santa Fe


That bein' 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 bein' summer I took off my shirt


And I tried to wash off some of that dusty dirt


When Texas cowboys they's 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


My uncle starts winnin'; cowboys got sore


One of them called him and then two more


Accused him of cheatin'; Oh no it couldn't be


I know my uncle he's as honest as me


And I'm as honest as a Denver man can be


One of them cowboys he starts to draw


And I shot him down Lord he never saw


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 I grabbed that gold


And I left his dead a** there by the side of the road
