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

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
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
Daddy never was the Cadillac kind
	     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 D		     G
Daddy never was the Cadillac kind

I left home right out of high school
[ Tab from: ]
Bought me a big car thought I was real cool
C			G
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
C			      G
He just said no, I never understood
He asked me how I bought it, I told him on credit
C			      D
Daddy just smiled, I'll never forget it


It took a while but now I'm grown
I've settled down with kids of my own

The more I give them
The more they want

Daddy left us last November

I don't remember him ever looking better
C			   G
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
  C			    G
A simple man simply laid to rest
As they drove him away in that big Cadillac
       C		       D
With a tear in my eye I had to laugh
