  G x4 Cadd9 x2 G x2

GWe were poor when I was a youngun
I don't remember ever going hungry
Cadd9 GDaddy made sure we didn't do without
GI went to school with some of these fellas
They had money and I was jealous
Cadd9 GI didn't know then what I know now
DDaddy'd say you can't judge a book by looking at its cover
C DIt's what's inside that really matters
G Cadd9Daddy never was the Cadillac kind
C DHe said some things just glitter and shine
G Cadd9 C He taught us that love was the one thing money couldn't buy
D GDaddy never was the Cadillac kind
GI left home right out of high school
Bought me a big car thought I was real cool
Cadd9 GCruisin' around the old neighborhood
GI'd see Dad after church on Sunday
I'd say you'll have to go riding with me someday
Cadd9 GHe just said no, I never understood
DHe asked me how I bought it, I told him on credit
C DDaddy just smiled, I'll never forget it
GIt took a while but now I'm grown
Cadd9I've settled down with kids of my own
CThe more I give them
DThe more they want
GDaddy left us last November
I don't remember him ever looking better
Cadd9 GAll laid out in his Sunday best
GI'm sure instead of all the attention
All he'd of wanted was a few words mentioned
Cadd9 GA simple man simply laid to rest
DAs they drove him away in that big Cadillac
C DWith a tear in my eye I had to laugh
