Daddy Sang Bass

Intro:
|     E     |     B7    |     E     |     E     |


E
I remember when I was a lad,
A                              E
times were hard and things were bad.
B7
But there’s a silver lining behind ev’ry cloud.
E
Just poor people, that’s all we were;
A                                   E
try’n’ to make a livin’ out of black land dirt.
B7                       E
But we’d get together in a family circle singin’ loud.


E
Daddy sang bass, mamma 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.

No, the circle won’t be broken.
A                            E
Bye and bye, Lord, bye and bye.
E
Daddy sang bass, mamma sang tenor.
A                                   E
Me and little brother would join right in there.
B7     E
In the sky, Lord, in the sky.


Interlude:

E
Now, I remember after work,
A                      E
mama would call         in all of us.
B7
You could hear us singin’ for a country mile.
E
Now, little brother has done gone on,
A                    E
but I’ll rejoin him in a song.
B7                      E
We’ll be together again up yonder in a little while.

In the sky, Lord, in the sky.
