G A That being the point, just about half-way. Em B Em And you know it was the hottest part of the day. Verse 2: I took those 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 dust and dirt. Verse 3: West Texas cowboys,they're all around. With liquor and money, they were loaded down So soon after payday, you know it seemed a shame. You know my uncle, he starts a friendly game. One-eyed Jacks and the winner takes the hand. Verse 4: 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, and he's as honest as me. And I'm as honest as a Denver man can be. Verse 5: One of the cowboys, he starts to draw, But I shot him down, Lord, he never saw. I shot me another, Hot Damn! he won't grow old. In the confusion, my uncle grabbed the gold, And we high-tailed it down to Mexico. Verse 6: I love those cowboys, I love their gold. I love my uncle, God rest his soul. He taught me good, Lord, he tought me all I know. He taught me so wel, I grabbed that gold, And I left his dead ass their by the side of the road.
