Daddy Sang Bass

Johnny Cash

 E
  I remember when I was a lad
 AE
Times were  hard and things were  bad
 B7
But there's a silver linin' behind every  cloud
 E
Just poor  people that all we were
 AE
Tryin' to make a  livin' out of blackland  earth
 B7EP
But we'd get together in a family  circle singin'  loud. ...  

CHORUS
 E7
N.C. Daddy sang bass, mama sang  tenor
 AE
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
 AE
I'll re- join them in a  song
 B7E
I'm gonna join the family  circle at the  throne. ...

 E7
No, the circle won't be  broken
 AEP
Bye and  bye, Lord, bye and  bye ...  
 E7
N.C. Daddy'll sing bass, mama'll sing  tenor
 AE
Me and little  brother will join right  in there
 B7E
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.

CHORUS

 EB7E
TAG:  In the sky, Lord,  in the  sky.
