The Band – Daniel And The Sacred Harp chords

F CDaniel, Daniel and the sacred harp,
Bb FDancing through the clover.
Bb AmDaniel, Daniel would you mind,
C7 FIf I look it over.
F Bb C7 FI heard of this famous harp years ago back in my home town
Bb C DmBut I sure never thought old Daniel be the one to come and bring it around
F C Bb FTell me Daniel how the harp came into your posession.
C Bb FAre you one of the chosen few who will march in the procession?
Bb Amand Daniel said:
F C F CThe sacred harp was handed down, from father unto son,
Bb Am Gm C7And me not being related, I could never be the one.
F C F CSo I saved up all my silver, and took it to a man,
Bb Am Gm FWho said he could deliver the harp, straight into my hand.
Dm GThree years I waited patiently,
C Bb'Till he returned with the harp from the sea of Galilee.
Dm G He said there is one more thing I must ask,
C BbBut not of personal greed.
Am GmBut I wouldn't listen I just grabbed the harp,
C7 FAnd said take what you may need.
F Bb C FNow Daniel looked quite satisfied, and the harp it seemed to glow.
Bb C DmBut the price that Daniel had really paid, he did not even know.
F C7 Back to his brother he took his troubled mind.
Bb FAnd he said dear brother I'm in a bind.
C7 But the brother would not hear his tale,
Bb Fhe said Old Daniel's gonna land in jail.
F C So to his father Daniel did run,
F CAnd he said oh father what have I done.
Bb Am GmHis father said son you've given in, you know you won your harp,
FBut you lost in sin.
Dm GThen Daniel took the harp and went high on the hill,
C BbAnd he blew across the meadow like a whippoorwhill.
Dm GHe played out his heart just the time to pass,
C Bb FBut as he looked to the ground, he noticed no shadow did he cast.
Repeat Chorus
