"Daddy Sang Bass" lyrics

Daddy Sang Bass

Well, I remember when I was a lad
Times were hard and things were bad
There's a silver lining behind every cloud
Just four people that's all we were
Trying to make a living out of black-land dirt
But we'd get together in a family circle
And sing out loud

Daddy sang bass
Mama sang tenor
Me and little brother
Would join right in there
You know, singing seems
To help a troubled soul
One of these days
And it won't be long
I'll rejoin them in a song
And we'll sing again
Up younder round the throne

Though the circle
Won't be broken
By and by, Lord
By and by
Daddy sang bass
Mama sang tenor
Me and little brother
Would join right in there
In the sky, Lord
In the sky

Now I remember after work
Mama would call in all of us
You could hear us singing
For a country mile
Now little brother has done gone home
But I'll rejoin him for too long
We'll be together again
Up yonder in a little while

Daddy sang bass
Mama sang tenor
Me and little brother
Would join right in there
You know, singing seems
To help a troubled soul
One of these days
And it won't be long
I'll rejoin them in a song
And we'll sing again
Up younder round the throne

No the circle
Won't be broken
By and by, Lord
By and by
Daddy sang bass
Mama sang tenor
Me and little brother
Would join right in there
In the sky, Lord
In the sky

In the sky, Lord
In the sky
