Daddy Sang Bass
recorded by Johnny Cash
written by Carl Perkins
 
 G                         G7 
I remember when I was a lad
            C                      G 
Times were hard and things were bad
                                          D7 
But there's a silver linin' behind every cloud
           G                       G7 
Just poor people that's all we were
                  C                         G 
Tryin' to make a livin' out of blackland dirt
                                   D7               G 
But we'd get together in a family circle singing loud  
 
                           G7 
Daddy sang bass Mama sang tenor
               C                             G 
Me and little brother would join right in there
                                  D7 
Singin' seems to help a troubled soul
              G                      G7 
One of these days and it won't be long
       C                 G 
I'll rejoin them in a song
                           D7              G 
I'm gonna join the family circle at the throne
 
                        G7 
No the circle won't be broken
         C                  G 
Bye and bye Lord bye and bye 
                                  G7 
Daddy'll sing bass  Mama'll sing tenor
               C                         G 
Me and little brother will join right in there
                 C     D7     G 
In the sky Lord in  the  sky
 
                      G7 
Now I remember after work 
      C                      G 
Mama would call in all of us
                                         D7 
You could hear us singin' for a country mile
            G                       G7 
Now little brother has done gone on 
          C                 G 
But I'll rejoin him in a song
                                   D7            G 
We'll be together again up yonder in a little while
 
repeat # 2 & 3
