U.S. Blues (Grateful Dead)
Red and White, Blue Suede Shoes
I'm Uncle Sam, How do you do?
Give me five, I'm still alive.
Ain't no luck, I've learned to duck.
Check my pulse, it don't change.
Stays 72, come shine or rain.
Wave the flag, pop the bag.
Rock the boat, Skin the goat.
Wave that flag, wave it wide and high.
Summer time done, come and gone my oh my.
I'm Uncle Sam, that's who I am.
Been hiding out in a rock 'n roll band.
Shake the hand, that shook the hand
of P.T. Barnum, and Charlie Chan.
Shine your shoes, Light the fuse.
Can you use, them old U.S. Blues?
I'll drink your health, share your wealth.
Run your life, steal your wife.
Chorus, then lead.
Back to back, Chicken Shack.
Sun of a gun, you better change your act.
Your all confused, what's to lose?
You can call this song the United States Blues.
Extended Chorus then end
