DADDY HAD A CARDIAC AND MAMA'S GOT A CADILLAC
Billy Yates
(Yates/Wiseman/Wiseman)
From the CD: IF I COULD GO BACK
2001, MOD Records
Submitted By: Christopher R


Fiddle Intro

I grew (E) up in what I thought was domestic bliss
I had a (A) daddy and a mama and a brother and a sis
(E) Never knew nothing 'bout the (B) finer things
We were (E) livin' on weenies, beenies, and dreams
Daddy used to take alot of business trips
Pr(A)omisin' us all a better life than this
(E) Said it was a sacrifice he (B) had to make
(E) Right about then, mama dropped another plate

Well it (E) turned out daddy wasn't nothin' but a snake
He had a (A) half a dozen women, in a half a dozen states
(E) Mama grew wiser as the (B) years went by
She (E) never said a word, kept it all inside
Well they found him face down in a motel room
(A) Smellin' like liquor and a lover's perfume
(E) Standing by the gravesite, (B) mama was a wreck
Till the (No Chord) State-Farm man, handed her a fat check

(A) Daddy had a cardiac
Mama got a Cadillac
(E) All of us kids done throwed away the tater sacks
(B) Look at us now
Living that life
(E) Daddy always promised us that he'd provide
(A) Daddy's on a shady hill
Mama's in a Coupe Deville
(E) Never have to worry 'bout another bill
(B) Daddy died smiling
But mama got the last laugh
(E) Daddy had a (No Chord) cardiac
Mama got a Cadillac

Well it's (E) been awhile now since it all went down
(A) Mama's still a hero all over town
When the (E) preacher does a serom about (B) those who wait
(E) Mama slips a hundred in the offerin' plate
Now, each and every year on the day he died
(A) Mama dresses up for a Sunday drive
(E) Where she ever goes, she (B) never does say
But, there's a (No Chord) fresh set of tire track on daddy's grave

(A) Daddy had a cardiac
Mama got a Cadillac
(E) All of us kids done throwed away the tater sacks
(B) Look at us now
Living that life
(E) Daddy always promised us that he'd provide
(A) Daddy's on a shady hill
Mama's in a Coupe Deville
(E) Never have to worry 'bout another bill
(B) Daddy died smiling
But mama got the last laugh
(E) Daddy had a (No Chord) cardiac
Mama got a Cadillac
