Daddy Sang Bass (Carl Perkins) I remember when I was a lad Times were hard and things were bad But there's a silver linin' behind every cloud Just poor people that all we were Tryin' to make a livin' out of blackland (earth or dirt) But we'd get together in a family circle singin' loud. cho: Daddy sang bass, mama sang tenor Me and little brother would join right in there Singin' 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 Bye and bye, Lord, bye and bye Daddy'll sing bass, mama'll sing tenor Me and little brother will 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 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.
