Daniel and the Sacred Harp  The Band

Da[F]niel, Daniel and the s[C]acred harp,
Da[Bb]ncing through the clo[F]ver.
Da[Bb]niel, Daniel wo[Am]uld you mind,
[C7]If I look it o[F]ver.
I he[F]ard of this famous harp ye[Bb]ars ago back in [C7]my home t[F]own
But I sure never thought old Da[Bb]niel be the one to come and [C]bring it [Dm]around
T[F]ell me Daniel h[C]ow the harp c[Bb]ame into your pose[F]ssion.
Are you one of the ch[C]osen few who will ma[Bb]rch in the process[F]ion?
[Bb]and Da[Am]niel said:
T[F]he sacred harp was han[C]ded down, from f[F]ather unto [C]son,
And m[Bb]e not being r[Am]elated, I could[Gm] never be the[C7] one.
So I sa[F]ved up all my si[C]lver, and [F]took it to a [C]man,
Who sa[Bb]id he could de[Am]liver the harp, s[Gm]traight into my [F]hand.
Three y[Dm]ears I waited patie[G]ntly,
'Till he retu[C]rned with the harp from the s[Bb]ea of Galilee.
He said[Dm] there is one more th[G]ing I must ask,
But n[C]ot of personal g[Bb]reed.
But I [Am]wouldn't listen I just gr[Gm]abbed the harp,
And said t[C7]ake what you may n[F]eed.
Now Da[F]niel looked quite sati[Bb]sfied, and the harp it se[C]emed to g[F]low.
But the price that Daniel had rea[Bb]lly paid, he did not e[C]ven k[Dm]now.
B[F]ack to his brother he t[C7]ook his troubled mind.
And he [Bb]said dear brother I'm [F]in a bind.
But the brother would not h[C7]ear his tale,
he said [Bb]Old Daniel's gonna [F]land in jail.
[F]So to his father Da[C]niel did run,
And he [F]said oh father what [C]have I done.
His fat[Bb]her said son you've gi[Am]ven in, you know you w[Gm]on your harp,
But you l[F]ost in sin.
Then Da[Dm]niel took the harp and went h[G]igh on the hill,
And he b[C]lew across the meadow like a whi[Bb]ppoorwhill.
He pl[Dm]ayed out his heart just the t[G]ime to pass,
But as he loo[C]ked to the ground, he no[Bb]ticed no shadow did he c[F]ast.
