Lyrics

I remember when I was a lad
Times were hard and things were bad
But there's a silver linin' behind every cloud
Just poor people that's all we were
Tryin' to make a livin' out of blackland earth
But 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' seems to help a 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
Bye and bye, lord, bye and bye ..
Daddy'll sing bass, mama'll sing tenor
Me and little brother will join right in there
In the sky, lord, in the sky

Now I remember after work
Mama would call in all of us
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 little while

Chorus
Daddy sang bass, mama sang tenor
Me and little brother would join right in there
Singin' seems to help a 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
Bye and bye, lord, bye and bye ..
Daddy'll sing bass, mama'll sing tenor
Me and little brother will join right in there
In the sky, lord, in the sky
In the sky, lord, in the sky
