Uncle Joe Oh, ever'body come and hear my song. I'm so God damn' old it won't take long; I'm a-comin' ninety-two and I'll have you know That the young folks calls me Uncle Joe. My God damn' hair has all turn' gray, Don't make no difference for I still feel gay; I still step out and dance pretty good, But l cain't seem to sing like l used to could. But when l git out with the gals, b' gee, I'm just about as young as I used to be. From Ozark Folksongs, Randolph. Collected from Lena Magnun, AK, 1922 RG
