Daddy never was  Confederate Railroad

written by: Dave Gibson
Bernie Nelson
Performed by Confederate Railroad on "Notorious"
  [G]  1.W[G]e were poor when I was a youngin'
I don't remember ever going hungry
Daddy made sure we didn't do without
I went to school with some of these fellas
They had money and I was jealous
I didn't know then what I know now
  Daddy'd say "you c[G]an't judge a book by looking at its cover
  It's what's ins[C]ide that really m[D]atters
C.Daddy never w[C]as the Cadillac k[G]ind
  He said some things just glitter and sh[D]ine
  He taught us that l[C]ove was the [D]one thing mon[C]ey couldn't b[G]uy
  Daddy never w[C]as the Cadillac k[G]ind
2.I left home right out of high school
Bought me a big car thought I was real cool
Cruisin' around the old neighborhood
I'd see Dad after church on Sunday
I'd say you'll have to go riding with me someday
He just said no, I never understood
He asked me how I bought it I told him on credit
Daddy just smiled I'll never forget it
Repeat Chorus
  It took a wh[C]ile but now I'm gr[G]own
  I've s[C]ettled down with kids of my [G]own
  The m[C]ore I give them
  The more they w[D]ant
3.Daddy left us last November
I don't remember him ever looking better
All laid out in his Sunday best
I'm sure instead of all the attention
All he'd of wanted was a few words mentioned
A simple man simply laid to rest
As they drove him away in that big Cadillac
With a tear in my eye I had to laugh
C.Daddy never was the Cadillac kind
He said some things just glitter and shine
Just this once I hope Daddy enjoyed the ride
'Cause Daddy never was the Cadillac kind
No my Daddy never was the Cadillac kind
