Daddy Sang Bass Johnny Cash
I rem[E]ember when I was a lad
Times were h[A]ard and things were b[E]ad
But there's a silver linin' behind every cl[B7]oud
Just poor p[E]eople that all we were
Tryin' to make a l[A]ivin' out of blackland e[E]arth
But we'd get together in a family c[B7]ircle singin' l[E]oud. ...
Daddy sang bass, mama sang t[E7]enor
Me and little br[A]other would join right i[E]n there
Singin' seems to help a troubled s[B7]oul
One of these d[E]ays and it won't be long
I'll rej[A]oin them in a [E]song
I'm gonna join the family c[B7]ircle at the th[E]rone. ...
No, the circle won't be br[E7]oken
Bye and b[A]ye, Lord, bye and [E]bye ...
Daddy'll sing bass, mama'll sing t[E7]enor
Me and little br[A]other will join right [E]in there
In the sky, Lord, [B7]in the sk[E]y. [E] [B7] [E]
Now I rem[E]ember after work mama would c[A]all in all of u[E]s
You could hear us singin' for a country m[B7]ile
Now little br[E]other has done gone on but I'll rej[A]oin him in a s[E]ong
We'll be together again up y[B7]onder in a little wh[E]ile.
