Glen Campbell – Daddy Sang Bass lyrics

(Daddy sang bass mama sang tenor)
Me and little brother would join right in there
Singin' seems to help a troubled soul
Now one of these days and it won't be long I'll rejoin them in a song
I'm gonna join that family circle at the throne
No the circle won't be broken by and by Lord by and by

Me and little brother would join right in there in the sky Lord in the sky

And 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 while
(Daddy sang bass...
