Daddy Played The Banjo Lyrics ID: 4238

Oh, Daddy played the banjo, and momma sang a song
And we joined in in three-part harmony
Brother played the guitar, and sister sang along
When trouble came to our family

Now momma took sick one day
The doctor said before the night is gone she'll pass away
So we gathered round the bedside, each and every child
And Daddy played the banjo and I saw momma smile

Oh, Daddy played the banjo, and momma sang a song
And we joined in in three-part harmony
Brother played the guitar, and sister sang along
When trouble came to our family

Now it seems like just yesterday
Daddy would take down that old banjo and play
Now he's picking that old banjo in his home on high
I know he's got them singing in the sweet by-and-by

Oh, Daddy played the banjo, and momma sang a song
And we joined in in three-part harmony
Brother played the guitar, and sister sang along
When trouble came to our family

As I look back upon the years
Of all the love and tears
And now when the dark clouds seem to hang around
Well, I just reach up and take that banjo down

Oh, Daddy played the banjo, and momma sang a song
And we joined in in three-part harmony
Brother played the guitar, and sister sang along
When trouble came to our family

Oh, Daddy played the banjo, and momma sang a song
And we joined in in three-part harmony
Brother played the guitar, and sister sang along
When trouble came to our family

Recorded by Big Al Downing.
