Lyrics for the Day – Uncle John’s Band

Back to the peak of rock music — late ’60’s to about ’72

Well the first days are the hardest days
Don’t you worry any more,
‘Cause when life looks like Easy Street
There is danger at your door
Think this through with me
Let me know your mind
Wo oh, what I want to know
Is are you kind
 
It’s a buck dancer’s 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
Won’t you come with me
Wo oh, what I want to know
Will you come with me
 
Goddamn, 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’n 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 knows
Like the morning sun you come
And like the wind you go
Ain’t 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 Beggar’s Tomb
I got me a violin
And I beg you call the tune
Anybody’s choice
I can hear your voice
Wo 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
 
Wo 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
