Daddy Never Was the Cadillac Kind
written by Dave Gibson and Bernie Nelson
from the album "Notorious"
NOTE: I couldn't get the other tab (which is in G) to work.   This one's in E, and
      it sounds a lot better (to me, at least).



We were poor when I was a young'un, I don't remember ever goin' hungry
G                             D
Daddy made sure we didn't do without

I went to school with some of these fellas, they had money and I was jealous
  G                            D
I didn't know then what I know now
Daddy'd say you can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover
     G                         A7
It's what's inside that really matters

            G                D
Daddy never was the Cadillac kind
             Bm     G                A
He said some things just glitter and shine
               G            G/F#      G/B            Em          
Tought us that love was the one thing money couldn't buy
            G   A7             D
Daddy never was   the Cadillac kind

I left home right outta high school, got me a big car thought I was real cool
Cruisin' around the old neighborhood
I'd see Daddy after church on Sunday, say "you have to go ridin' with me someday"
He just said no, I never understood
He asked me how I bought it I told him on credit
Daddy just smiled, I'll never forget it


Bm                  D/A
It took a while but now I'm grown
Bm                D/A
Settled down with kids of my own
    Bm              G             A7
The more I give 'em the more they want

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


'Cause Daddy never was the Cadillac kind
He said some things just glitter and shine
Well just this once I hope Daddy enjoyed the ride
'Cause Daddy never was the Cadillac kind

                  G   G/F# A7              D
No my Daddy never was.........the Cadillac kind
