Lyrics for Daddy Frank by Bo Young

Title: Daddy Frank
Artist: Bo Young
Composer: Merle Haggard
======================

Daddy Frank played the guitar
and the french harp
Sister played the
ringing tambourine
Mama couldn't hear
our pretty music
but she read our lips and
helped the family sing

That little band
was all a part of living
and our only means
of living at the time
And it wasn't like no
normal family combo
cause Daddy Frank
the guitar man was blind

Frank and mama
counted on each other
Their one and only
weakness made them strong
and Mama did the
driving for the family,
and Frank made
a living with a song

Home was just a
camp along the highway
A pickup bed was where
we bedded down
and I don't ever once
remember going hungry
I remember Mama
cooking on the ground

Daddy Frank played the guitar
and the french harp
Sister played the
ringing tambourine
Mama couldn't hear
our pretty music
but she read our lips and
helped the family sing

But that little band
was all a part of living
and our only means
of living at the time
And it wasn't like no
normal family combo
cause Daddy Frank
the guitar man was blind

Don't remember how
they got acquainted
I can't recall just
how it came to be
There had to be some
special help from someone
And blessed be the
one that let it be

Fever caused my Mama's
loss of hearing
Daddy Frank was born
without his sight
And mama needed
someone she could lean on
And I believe
the guitar man was right

Daddy Frank played the guitar
and the french harp
Sister played the
ringing tambourine
Mama couldn't hear
our pretty music
but she read our lips and
helped the family sing

But that little band
was all a part of living
and our only means
of living at the time
And it wasn't like no
normal family combo
cause Daddy Frank
the guitar man was blind

cause Daddy Frank
the guitar man was blind

cause Daddy Frank
the guitar man was blind

Daddy Frank
