    Lyrics

    (Carl Perkins)

    I remember when I was a lad
    Times were hard and times were bad
    But there's a silver lining behind every cloud
    Just poor people that's all we were
    Tryin' to make a livin' out of black land dirt
    We'd get together in a family circle sing out loud.

    (Daddy sang bass, mama sang tenor)
    Me and little brother would join right in there
    Singing seems to help a troubled soul
    One of these days and it won't be long
    I'll rejoin them in a song
    I'm gonna join the family circle at the throne
    No the circle won't be broken
    By and by, Lord, by and by.

    (Daddy sang bass, mama sang tenor)
    Me and little brother would join right in there
    In the sky Lord in the sky.

    --- Instrumental ---

    Now I remember after work mama would call in all of us
    You could hear us singing for a country mile
    Now little brother has done gone on, I'll rejoin him in a song
    We'll be together again up yonder in a while.

    (Daddy sang bass, mama sang tenor)
    Me and little brother would join right in there...
    In the sky Lord in the sky...
