U. S. Blues

“U.S. Blues”
Words by Robert Hunter; music by Jerry Garcia

Red and white/blue suede shoes
I’m Uncle Sam /how do you do?
Gimme five/I’m still alive
Ain’t no luck/I learned to duck
Check my pulse/it don’t change
Stay seventy two/come shine or rain
Wave the flag/pop the bag
Rock the boat/skin the goat

Wave that flag
Wave it wide and high
Summertime
Done come and gone
My oh my

I’m Uncle Sam /that’s who I am
Been hidin’ out/in a rock and roll band
Shake the hand that shook the hand
Of P.T. Barnum/and Charlie Chan

Shine your shoes/light your fuse
Can you use/them ol’ U.S. Blues?
I’ll drink your health/share your wealth
Run your life/steal your wife

Wave that flag
Wave it wide and high
Summertime done
Come and gone
My oh my

Back to back/chicken shack
Son of a gun/better change your act
We’re all confused/what’s to lose?
You can call this song/the United States Blues

Wave that flag
Wave it wide and high
Summertime done come and gone
My oh My
Summertime done come and gone
My oh My
