Daddy Sang Bass Lyrics

I remember when I was a lad
Times were hard and things were bad
But there's a silver linin' behind ev'ry cloud
Just four people that 's all we were
Tryin' to make a livin' out of black-land dirt
But we'd get together in a family circle...

    The song is about Johnny Cash's childhood.
    Now little brother has done gone on but I'll rejoin him in a song- Johnny's brother Jack was killed in a work accident. Johnny's father blamed Johnny for the death of Jack.
