ChorusDaFniel, Daniel and the sCacred harp, DaB♭ncing through the cloFver. DaB♭niel, Daniel woAmuld you mind, C7If I look it oFver.
VerseI heFard of this famous harp yeB♭ars ago back in C7my home tFown But I sure never thought old DaB♭niel be the one to come and Cbring it Dmaround TFell me Daniel hCow the harp cB♭ame into your poseFssion. Are you one of the chCosen few who will maB♭rch in the processFion? B♭and DaAmniel said: TFhe sacred harp was hanCded down, from fFather unto Cson, And mB♭e not being rAmelated, I couldGm never be theC7 one. So I saFved up all my siClver, and Ftook it to a Cman, Who saB♭id he could deAmliver the harp, sGmtraight into my Fhand. Three yDmears I waited patieGntly, 'Till he retuCrned with the harp from the sB♭ea of Galilee. He saidDm there is one more thGing I must ask, But nCot of personal gB♭reed. But I Amwouldn't listen I just grGmabbed the harp, And said tC7ake what you may nFeed. Now DaFniel looked quite satiB♭sfied, and the harp it seCemed to gFlow. But the price that Daniel had reaB♭lly paid, he did not eCven kDmnow. BFack to his brother he tC7ook his troubled mind. And he B♭said dear brother I'm Fin a bind. But the brother would not hC7ear his tale, he said B♭Old Daniel's gonna Fland in jail. FSo to his father DaCniel did run, And he Fsaid oh father what Chave I done. His fatB♭her said son you've giAmven in, you know you wGmon your harp, But you lFost in sin. Then DaDmniel took the harp and went hGigh on the hill, And he bClew across the meadow like a whiB♭ppoorwhill. He plDmayed out his heart just the tGime to pass, But as he looCked to the ground, he noB♭ticed no shadow did he cFast. Repeat Chorus
