lyrics

I wish I had known my uncle better
I didn't learn bass until after he died
Looking at old pictures of him
playing that blue Rickenbacker 4003

Sometimes I'll play a gig and older guys
Will hear our shared last name
They'll find me after and say
"You must be Phil's brother!"

"You look so much like him, and
you play a lot like him too."
I tell them I'm his nephew, and we chat a while
Like they're seeing a long-lost friend

I wish he were around to show me some licks
Tell stories about his trips to Nashville
When they recorded that 45
But the addictions and disappointments
All added up
He didn't make it out of all that alive
