"Daddy Sang Bass" lyrics

Daddy Sang Bass

I remember when I was a lad
Times were hard
And things were bad
But there's a silver lining
Behind every cloud

Just poor 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
Singing loud

Daddy sang bass
Mama sang tenor
Me and little brother
Would join right in there
Singing seems to help
A troubled soul

One of these days
And it won't be long
I'll rejoin them in a song
I'm gonna join the family circle
At 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

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 on
But, I'll rejoin him in a song
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
Cause singing seems to help
A troubled soul

One of these days
And it won't be long
I'll rejoin them in a song
I'm gonna join the family circle
At the Throne

Oh, 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
