Daddy Never Was Caddy Kind(Chords)

Confederate Railroad

Key: G
Intro:  G  
  
   G  
1.We were poor when I was a youngin'  
  I don't remember ever going hungry  
 C                                 G 
Daddy made sure we didn't do without  
G   
I went to school with some of these fellas  
  They had money and I was jealous  
C                                 G 
I didn't know then what I know now  
  
                    D  
  Daddy'd say 'you can't judge a book by looking at its cover  
                 C                D  
  It's what's inside that really matters  
  
               C                G  
C.Daddy never was the Cadillac kind  
                Em      C                   D  
  He said some things just glitter and shine  
                     C           D            C            G  
  He taught us that love was the one thing money couldn't buy  
               C                G  
  Daddy never was the Cadillac kind  
  
2.I left home right out of high school  
  Bought me a big car thought I was real cool  
  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  
  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  
  
Repeat Chorus  
  
Bridge  
              C                 G  
  It took a while but now I'm grown  
        C                           G  
  I've settled down with kids of my own  
       C  
  The more I give them   
                 D  
  The more they want  
  
  
3.Daddy left us last November  
  I don't remember him ever looking better  
  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  
  A simple man simply laid to rest  
  
  As they drove him away in that big Cadillac  
  With a tear in my eye I had to laugh  
  
C.Daddy never was the Cadillac kind  
  He said some things just glitter and shine  
  Just this once I hope Daddy enjoyed the ride  
  'Cause Daddy never was the Cadillac kind  
  No my Daddy never was the Cadillac kind  
  
                                                            C
