Verse 1: 
Em G Em
Me and my uncle went ridin' down
G Em
South Color-ado, West Texas bound
G Em
We stopped over in Santa Fe
G A
That point being just about half way
G B Em
And you know it was the hottest part of the day

Verse 2:
G Em
I took the horses up to the stall
G Em
Went to the barroom, ordered drinks for all
G Em
Three days in the saddle, you know my body hurt
G A
It bein' summer, I took off my shirt
G B Em
And I tried to wash off some of that dusty dirt

Verse 3:
G Em
West Texas cowboys, they's all around
G Em
With liquor and money, they're loaded down
G Em
So soon after payday, you know it seemed a shame
G A
You know my uncle, he starts a friendly game
G B Em
High-low jack and the winner take the hand

Verse 4:
Em G Em
My uncle starts winnin' - cowboys got sore
G Em
One of them called him and then two more
G Em
Accused him of cheatin' - oh no, it couldn't be
G A
I know my uncle - he's as honest as me
G B Em
And I'm as honest as a Denver man can be

Verse 5:
G Em
One of them cowboys, he starts to draw
G Em
I shot him down, Lord, he never saw
G Em
Shot me a-nother, hot damn, he won't grow old
G A
And in the con-fusion my uncle grabbed the gold
G B Em
And we high-tailed it down to Mexi-co

Verse 6:
G Em
I love those cowboys, I love their gold
G Em
I loved my uncle, God rest his soul
G Em
He taught me good, Lord, taught me all I know
G A
Taught me so well, I grabbed that gold
G B Em
And I left his dead-ass there by the side of the road
