ChorusD Daddy Frank played the guitar and the french harp, A Sister played the ringing tambourine. Mama couldn't hear our pretty music, D She read our lips and helped the family sing. That Dlittle band was all a part of living, And our only means of living at the Atime; And it wasn't like no normal family combo, Cause Daddy Frank the guitar man was Dblind.
GFDrank and mama counted on each other;
GTBmheir one and only weakness made them strong.
GMDama did the driving for the family,
BmAAnd Frank made a living with a song.
GHDome was just a camp along the highway;
GABm pick-up bed was where we bedded down.
GDDon't ever once remember going hungry,
DD [<-1 strum But I remember mama cooking on the ground. per letter] [REPEAT CHORUS] GDon't remember how they got acDquainted; I Gcan't recall just how it came to Bmbe. There Ghad to be some special help from Dsomeone, And Bmblessed be the one that let it Abe. GFever caused my mama's loss of Dhearing. GDaddy Frank was born without his Bmsight. GAnd mama needed someone she could Dlean on,
