Uncle Sam I work hard every day but there ain't much left when I draw my pay
Then I hear you're givin' those millions away to somebody outside the USA
Uncle Sam Uncle Sam Uncle Sam I'm a patriot yes I am
And even though you made me mad as cane if you need me Uncle just call my name

Now the little dirt farmer works all of his life
And leaves eight dollars to his kids and wife
While the big land owner is a millionare he made it by lettin' his land stand bare
Uncle Sam Uncle Sam...
[ guitar ]
I get choked up every time I hear the national anthem loud and clear
And though I've got a complaint or two you can write my name in red white and blue
Uncle Sam Uncle Sam...
Uncle Sam Uncle Sam...
Uncle Sam Uncle Sam...
