Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo


C               E7
On the day when I was born
F                  Am
Daddy sat down and cried.
F                      C        G
I had the mark just as plain as day;
      D7             G7
Which could not be denied.
C                          E7
They say that Cain caught Abel
F              Am
Rollin' loaded dice;
F                C       G
Ace of Spades behind his ear
    F                 E7
And him not thinkin' twice.

Halfstep, Mississippi uptown toodeloo
F                C         G
Hello, baby, I'm gone, goodbye
F             C        G
Half a cup of Rock and Rye.
F                   C        G
Farewell to you old Southern skies
    Am        E7
I'm on my way, on my way.

Am  Am/maj7  Am7   D9
F   Dm      B7    E7
Am  Am/maj7  Am7   D9
F   Am      D7    G7

If all you got to live for
Is what you left behind,
Get yourself a powder charge
And seal that silver mine.
Lost my boots in transit, babe,
A pile of smokin' leather.
I nailed a retread to my feet
And prayed for better weather.

They say that when your ship comes in,
The first man takes the sails;
The second takes the afterdeck,
The third the planks and rails
What's the point of callin' shots;
This cue ain't straight in line.
Cue ball's made of styrofoam
And no one's got the time.

A             D          A              D
Across the Rio Grandeeo, Across the lazy river.

About the artist behind Mississippi Half-step Uptown Toodeloo Chords:

The Grateful Dead was an American rock band formed in 1965 in the San Francisco Bay Area.[1] The band was known for its unique and eclectic style, which fused elements of rock, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, country, jazz, psychedelia, space rock[2][3] and gospel—and for live performances of long musical improvisation.[1][4] "Their music," writes Lenny Kaye, "touches on ground that most other groups don't even know exists."[5]

The Grateful Dead's fans, some of whom followed the band from concert to concert for years, are known as Deadheads and have been renowned for their dedication to the band's music.[1][4] Many fans referred to the band simply as "the Dead". As of 2003, the remaining band members who had been touring under the name "The Other Ones" changed their official group name to "The Dead". Deadheads continue to use the nickname to refer to all versions of the band.[6]

Their musical influences varied widely; in concert recordings or on record albums one can hear psychedelic rock (in the late sixties), the blues, rock nuggets, country-western, bluegrass, country-rock, and although they rarely played jazz music, the band certainly borrowed for their music the kind of long improvisatory sequences that jazz artists such as Charles Mingus and John Coltrane perfected in the 1950s and 1960s. These various influences were distilled into a diverse and psychedelic whole that made the Grateful Dead "the pioneering Godfathers of the jam band world."[7]
