ARLO GUTHRIE lyrics - Uncle Jeff

ARLO GUTHRIE
"Uncle Jeff"
(Arlo Guthrie)

Uncle Jeff played the fiddle in his Colorado home
And I backed him on the banjo so he didn't play alone
We've got five generations of a fiddle playin' clan
And it's nice to hear a fiddle by a fiddle playin' man

Here's another song for Uncle Jeff Guthrie
Written on the road by the light of the moon
Thinkin' 'bout fiddlin' somewhere up in Michigan
I hope that I can make it back to Colorado soon

Well my daddy had a fiddle and he laid it on his son
Sayin' "Son play the fiddle like your fiddlin' folks done"
Well it's hard to Iearn to fiddle
When you're fiddlin' on the run
But fiddlin' is fiddlin', and fiddlin' is fun
