Merle Haggard
[Chorus]
D
Daddy Frank played the guitar and the french harp
D                         A
Sister played the ringing tambourine
A
And mama couldn't hear our pretty music
A                                           D
But she read our lips and helped the family sing
D
That little band was all a part of living
D                                   A
And our only means of living at the time
A
And it wasn't like no normal family combo
A                                     D
'Cause Daddy Frank the guitar man was blind

[Verse]
Bm                             D
Frank and Mama counted on each other
D     Bm                              D
Their one and only weakness made them strong
G                            D
Mama did the driving for the family
D   E                            A
And Frank made a living with his song
Bm                             D
Home was just a camp along the highway
Bm                            D
Pickup bed is where we bedded down
D     G                        D
Don't ever once remember going hungry
D              G    D       A      D
But I remember Mama cooking on the ground

[Chorus]
D
Daddy Frank played the guitar and the french harp
D                         A
Sister played the ringing tambourine
A
Mama couldn't hear the pretty music
A                                           D
But she read our lips and helped the family sing
D
That little band was all a part of living
D                                   A
And our only means of living at the time
A
And it wasn't like no normal family combo
A                                     D
'Cause Daddy Frank the guitar man was blind

[Verse]
D     Bm                    D
Don't remember how they got acquainted
D Bm                               A
I can't recall just how it came to be
A     G                                D
There had to be some special help from someone
D   A                             D
And blessed be the one who let it be
Bm                             D
Fever caused my Mama's loss of hearing
Bm                               D
Daddy Frank was born without his sight
D   G                             D
And Mama needed someone she could lean on
D   A                            D
And I believe the guitar man was right

[Chorus]
D
Daddy Frank played the guitar and the french harp
D                              A
Sister played the ringing tambourine
A
Mama couldn't hear our pretty music
A                                           D
But she read our lips and helped the family sing
D
That little band was all a part of living
D                                   A
And our only means of living at the time
A
And it wasn't like no normal family combo
A                                     D
'Cause Daddy Frank the guitar man was blind
