Lyrics
Crazy Uncle Blues
- Gord Field

Chorus
I've got a Crazy Uncle,
He's almost 52.
I've got a Crazy Uncle,
He rides a Harley too.
He likes his women younger,
Turns out he loves the Blues....

Verse
Well I may be a young man, but,
The Blues are in my blood.
I've got soul and rhythm,
The Blues are in my blood.
So I asked my Crazy Unc to jam,
He simply said, “We should.”

Verse
Our axes got to grindin',
He grinned from ear to ear.
He played the chords, and melodies,
I let my guitar sing.
The World came to a standstill,
At least that's how it seemed.

Chorus
I've got a Crazy Uncle,
He's almost 52.
I've got a Crazy Uncle,
He rides a Harley too.
He likes his women younger,
Turns out he loves the Blues....

Verse
My Crazy Uncle told me,
“Boy, you play real well.”
My Crazy Uncle told me,
“Son, you play real well!”
“You could play with Charlie Daniels,”
“'Gainst that Devil down in Hell!”

Chorus
I've got a Crazy Uncle,
He's almost 52.
I've got a Crazy Uncle,
He rides a Harley too.
He likes his women younger,
Turns out he loves the Blues....
Ah, huh...

Singing the blues
I, too, fit the profile : )

I love how you take a classic blues format and make it into a contemporary song.

However, it really needs an instrumental break so you can play as well as sing those blues.

Crazy Uncle Blues
Entertaining lyrics. The simple backing could do with some extra players (which I guess is the general idea) but it's fun to listen to as is.

Love the irreverent lyrics that tell your crazy little ditty. I've been a crazy uncle and now wait to be a crazy grandfather.
