    Lyrics

    Well the first days are the hardest days
    don't you worry any more.
    'cause when life looks like easy street,
    there is danger at your door.
    Think this through with me;
    let me know your mind
    Whoa, oh, what I want to know
    is are you kind?

    It's a buck dancer's choice my friend
    Better take my advice
    You know all the rules by now
    And the fire from the ice
    Will you come with me
    Won't you come with me
    Whoa oh, what I want to know is
    Will you come with me?

    God damn! well I declare
    Have you seen the like
    Their walls are built of cannon balls
    Their motto is "don't tread on me"

    Come hear Uncle John's Band
    Playing to the tide
    Come with me or go alone
    He's come to take his children home

    It's the same story the crow told me
    It's the only one he knows
    Like the morning sun you come
    And like the wind you go
    Ain't no time to hate
    Barely time to wait
    Whoa oh, what I want to know is
    Where does the time go?

    I live in a silver mine
    And I call it Beggar's Tomb
    I got me a violin
    And I beg you call the tune
    Anybody's choice
    I can hear your voice
    Whoa oh, what I want to know is:
    How does the song go?

    Come hear Uncle John's Band
    By the river side
    Got some things to talk about
    Here beside the rising tide
    Come hear Uncle John's Band
    Playing to the tide
    Come along or go alone
    He's come to take his children home

    --Repeat last--
