Daddy Frank  Merle Haggard

Daddy Frank play[C]ed the guitar and the French harp
Sister played the ringing tambou[G7]rine
Mama couldn't hear our pretty music
She read our lips and helped the family [C]sing
That little band was all a part of living
And our only means of living at the [G7]time
And it wasn't like no normal family combo
Cause Daddy Frank the guitar man was [C]blind
[F]Frank and mama counted on each [C]other
[F]Their one and only weakness made them [C]strong
[F]Mama did the driving for the [C]family
[D7]And Frank made a living with a [G7]song
[F]Home was just a camp along the [C]highway
[F]A pick-up bed was where we bedded [C]down
[F]Don't ever once remember going [C]hungry
But I [F]remember [C]mama [G7]cooking on the [C]ground
[C]Daddy Frank played the guitar and the French harp
Sister played the ringing tambou[G7]rine
Mama couldn't hear our pretty music
She read our lips and helped the family [C]sing
That little band was all a part of living
And our only means of living at the [G7]time
And it wasn't like no normal family combo
Cause Daddy Frank the guitar man was [C]blind
[F]Don't remember how they got ac[C]quainted
I [F]can't recall just how it came to [C]be
There [F]had to be some special help from [C]someone
And [D7]blessed be the one that let it [G7]be
[F]Fever caused my mama's loss of [C]hearing
[F]Daddy Frank was born without his [C]sight
[F]And mama needed someone she could [C]lean on
And [F]I believe the [C]guitar [G7]man was [C]right
[C]Daddy Frank played the guitar and the French harp
Sister played the ringing tambou[G7]rine
Mama couldn't hear our pretty music
She read our lips and helped the family [C]sing
That little band was all a part of living
And our only means of living at the [G7]time
And it wasn't like no normal family combo
Cause Daddy Frank the guitar man was [C]blind
