Lyrics

Carl L. Perkins

Verse 1
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
Trying to make a living out of black-land dirt
But, we'd get together in a family circle singing loud

Chorus
Daddy sang bass, Mama sang tenor
Me and little brother would join right in there
Singing seems 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

Verse 2
I remember after work, Mama would call in all of us
You could hear us singing for a country mile
Well 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

Chorus
Daddy sang bass, Mama sang tenor
Me and little brother would join right in there
Singing seems 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

No the circle won't be broken
By and by Lord by and by
Daddy sang bass, Mama sang tenor
Me and little brother would join right in there
In the sky Lord in the sky

Daddy sang bass, Mama sang tenor
Me and little brother would join right in there
Singing seems 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

No the circle won't be broken
By and by Lord by and by
Daddy sang bass, Mama sang tenor
Me and little brother would join right in there
In the sky Lord in the sky
