Verse 1

A7Went uptown to see my cousin Plays guitar, sounds like a chainsaw buzzin' In the crowd, I see his mom and dad I said "Hey, hey, Uncle, man your son is bad"

Chorus

But D7sometimes, sometimes bad is A7bad I said “E7Cool is a rule, but, D7sometimes, bad is A7bad.”

Verse 3

A7Back uptown to see Marie Nobody home, I opened the door with my key "I love you, Huey" was the note I read But there's a strange pair of shoes underneath the bed

Chorus

This is my interpretation of the song and is what I hear. Since U-G doesn't always include the correct chord voicings, I have included all of them in this transcription. Please feel free to experiment with your own chord voicings. Two versions of chords listed at the top of this song. Chords shown at left are standard, while alternate chords shown at right are jazz voicings. Play the one which sounds best to you, or use your own.
