                           Daddy Never Was the Cadillac Kind

                                       written by: Dave Gibson
                                                   Bernie Nelson

                              Performed by Confederate Railroad on "Notorious"


1.We were poor when I was a youngin'
  I don't remember ever going hungry
  Daddy made sure we didn't do without
  I went to school with some of these fellas
  They had money and I was jealous
  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
C.Daddy never was the Cadillac kind
  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

              C                 G
  It took a while but now I'm grown
        C                           G
  I've settled down with kids of my own
  The more I give them
  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
