  G x4 Cadd9 x2 G x2

We were poor when I was a youngun 
I don't remember ever going hungry 
Cadd9                        G
Daddy made sure we didn't do without 
I went to school with some of these fellas 
They had money and I was jealous 
Cadd9                          G
I didn't know then what I know now 
Daddy'd say you can't judge a book by looking at its cover 
     C                  D
It's what's inside that really matters 

            G                Cadd9
Daddy never was the Cadillac kind 
             C                       D
He said some things just glitter and shine 
                  G            Cadd9                    C 
He taught us that love was the one thing money couldn't buy 
            D                    G
Daddy never was the Cadillac kind 

I left home right out of high school 
Bought me a big car thought I was real cool 
Cadd9                           G
Cruisin' around the old neighborhood 
I'd see Dad after church on Sunday 
I'd say you'll have to go riding with me someday 
Cadd9                         G
He just said no, I never understood 
He asked me how I bought it, I told him on credit 
C                  D
Daddy just smiled, I'll never forget it 

It took a while but now I'm grown 
I've settled down with kids of my own 
The more I give them 
The more they want 

Daddy left us last November 
I don't remember him ever looking better 
Cadd9                      G
All laid out in his Sunday best 
I'm sure instead of all the attention 
All he'd of wanted was a few words mentioned 
Cadd9                       G
A simple man simply laid to rest 
As they drove him away in that big Cadillac 
       C                D
With a tear in my eye I had to laugh
