Daddy Sang Bass (Cash Johnny)

E I remember when I was a lad A E Times were hard and things were bad B7 But there's a silver linin' behind every cloud E Just poor people that's all we were A E Tryin' to make a livin' out of blackland dirt B7 E We'd get together in a family circle singin' loud. E7 R: Daddy sang bass, mama sang tenor A E Me and little brother would join right in there B7 Singin' seems to help a troubled soul E One of these days and it won't be long A E I'll rejoin them in a song B7 E I'm gonna join the family circle at the throne. E7 No, the circle won't be broken A E Bye and bye, Lord, bye and bye E7 Daddy'll sing bass, mama'll sing tenor A E Me and little brother will join right in there B7 E In the sky, Lord, in the sky. Now I remember after work mama would call in all of us You could hear us singin' for a country mile Now little brother has done gone on but I'll rejoin him in a song We'll be together again up yonder in a little while. R: Daddy sang bass, mama sang tenor... Oh no, the circle won't be broken Bye and bye, Lord, bye and bye E B7 E In the sky, Lord, in the sky.
