Uncle Pen
Recorded by Ricky Skaggs
Written by Bill Monroe

Oh the people would come from far away
D7 G
They'd dance all night till the break of day

When the caller hollered do-se-do
D7 G
We knew Uncle Pen was ready to go

Late in the evening about sundown
D7 G
High on the hill and above the town

Uncle Pen played the fiddle and oh how it would ring
D7 G
You could hear it talk you could hear it sing

Well he played an old tune called Soldier's Joy
D7 G
And the one they called Boston Boy

And the greatest of all was Jenny Lind
D7 G
To me that's where the fiddlin' began

Repeat #2

I'll never forget that mournful day
D7 G
When Uncle Pen was called away

They hang up his fiddle they hang up his bow
D7 G
They know it was time for him to go

Repeat #2 x2
