      About "My Uncle"

      Lyrics for The Flying Burrito Brothers - "My Uncle"

      A letter came today from my draft board
      With trembling hands I read the questionnaire
      It asked me lots of things about my mama and poppa
      Now that ain't what I call exactly fair

      So I'm headed for the nearest foreign border
      Vancouver may be my kind of town
      'Cause they don't need the kind of law and order
      That tends to keep a good man underground

      A sad old soldier once told me a story
      About a battlefield that he was on
      He said a man should never fight for glory
      He must know what is right and what is wrong

      So I'm headed for the nearest foreign border
      Vancouver may be my kind of town
      That tends to keep a good man underground

      Now I don't know how much I owe my uncle
      But I suspect it's more than I can pay
      He's asking me to sign a three year contract
      I guess I'll catch the first bus out today

      So I'm headed for the nearest foreign border
      Vancouver may be my kind of town
      'Cause they don't need the kind of law and order
      That tends to keep a good man underground
