THANKS TO UNCLE JOHN
Merle Haggard

Many years ago when my daddy died,
I caught myself a freight train and my mama cried.
Looking back, it all looks like a marathon,
And it started all with an E chord I learned from Uncle John.

Now John had a lot of gumption and he gave me some,
And he taught me "Rubber Dolly" and a guitar run.
A river bank in those days, wadn't my love, [boo?]
But he shared his kitchen table and his family, too.

Now right here 'n' now, it's thanks to Uncle John,
To Claudia, Doug, Norman, Joe, an' Lilli-an.
Now John Burke was really not my uncle, but we were kin,
'Cause he shared his home and family and he took me in.

RUBBER DOLLY FIDDLE BREAK

Many years ago when my daddy died,
I caught myself a freight train and my mama cried.
An' looking back, it all looks like a marathon,
And it started all with a blues chord that I learned from my uncle John.

Merle Talk:
"Rubber Dolly", Yes
[Fiddle plays]
Merle talk: "Rubber Dolly"
