Daddy Sang Bass
.
By Carl Perkins

Chorus
Will the circle be unbroken
Bye and bye, Lord, bye and bye
There’s a better home awaitin’
In the sky, Lord, in the sky
 
Verse 1
Well, 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
Tryin’ to make a livin’ out of black land dirt
We’d get together in a family circle singin’ loud
 
Chorus
Daddy sang bass
Mama sang tenor
Me and little brother would join right in there
Singin’ seemed to help the 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
 
Will the circle be unbroken
Bye and bye, Lord, bye and bye
There’s a better home awaitin’
In the sky, Lord, in the sky
 
Verse 2
Now I remember after work
Mama would call in all of us
You could hear us singin’ for a country mile
Now little brother, he is gone
But I’ll rejoin him in a song
We’ll be together again up yonder in a little while
 
Chorus
Daddy sang bass
Mama sang tenor
Me and little brother would join right in there
Singin’ seemed to help the 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 
 
Will the circle be unbroken
Bye and bye, Lord, bye and bye
There’s a better home awaitin’
In the sky, Lord, in the sky
Will the circle be unbroken
Bye and bye, Lord, bye and bye
There’s a better home awaitin’

In the sky, Lord, in the sky
In the sky, Lord, in the sky
 
SPIRIT OF FREEDOM
