Band – Daniel And The Sacred Harp lyrics

Chorus:
G D
Daniel, Daniel and the sacred harp,
C G
Dancing through the clover.
C Bm
Daniel, Daniel would you mind,
D7 G
If I look it over.

Verse:
G C D7 G
I heard of this famous harp years ago back in my home town
C D Em
But I sure never thought old Daniel be the one to come and bring it around
G D C G
Tell me Daniel how the harp came into your posession.
D C G
Are you one of the chosen few who will march in the the procession?
C Em

And Daniel said:
G D G D
The sacred harp was handed down, from father unto son,
C Bm Am D7
And me not being related, I could never be the one.
G D G D
So I saved up all my silver, and took it to a man,
C Bm Am G
Who said he could deliver the harp, straight into my hand.

Em A
Three years I waited patiently,
D C
'Till he returned with the harp from the sea of Galilee.
Em A
He said there is one more thing I must ask,
D C
But not of personal greed.
Bm Am
But I wouldn't listen I just grabbed the harp,
D7 G
And said take what you may need.

G C D G
Now Daniel looked quite satisfied, and the harp it seemed to glow.
C D Em
But the price that Daniel had really paid, he did not even know.
G D7
Back to his brother he took his troubled mind.
C G
And he said dear brother I'm in a bind.
D7
But the brother would not hear his tale,
C G
He said Old Daniel's gonna land in jail.
G D
So to his father Daniel did run,
G D
And he said oh father what have I done.
C Bm Am
His father said son you've given in, you know you won your harp,
G
But you lost in sin.

Em A
Then Daniel took the harp and went high on the hill,
D C
And he blew across the meadow like a whippoorwhill.
Em A
He played out his heart just the time to pass,
D C G
But as he looked to the ground, he noticed no shadow did he cast.

Repeat Chorus
