Daddy Sang Bass  Johnny Cash

Recorded by Johnny Cash
Written by Carl Perkins
[E] I remember when I was a lad
Times were [A] hard and things were [E] bad
But there's a silver linin' behind every [B7] cloud
Just poor [E] people that all we were
Tryin' to make a [A] livin' out of blackland [E] earth
But we'd get together in a family [B7] circle singin' [E] loud. ... [P]
N.C. Daddy sang bass, mama sang [E7] tenor
Me and little [A] brother would join right [E] in there
Singin' seems to help a troubled [B7] soul
One of these [E] days and it won't be long
I'll re-[A] join them in a [E] song
I'm gonna join the family [B7] circle at the [E] throne. ...
No, the circle won't be [E7] broken
Bye and [A] bye, Lord, bye and [E] bye ... [P]
N.C. Daddy'll sing bass, mama'll sing [E7] tenor
Me and little [A] brother will join right [E] in there
In the sky, Lord, [B7] in the [E] 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.
TAG: [E] In the sky, Lord, [B7] in the [E] sky.
