  F                     C
Daniel, Daniel and the sacred harp,
  Bb                   F
Dancing through the clover.
  Bb             Am
Daniel, Daniel would you mind,
C7            F
If I look it over.

    F                         Bb               C7       F
I heard of this famous harp years ago  back in my home town
                               Bb                          C        Dm
But I sure never thought old Daniel be the one to come and bring it around
 F              C            Bb                F
Tell me Daniel how the harp came into your posession.
                     C                   Bb                F
Are you one of the chosen few who will march in the procession?
Bb    Am
and Daniel said:
 F                     C               F          C
The sacred harp was handed down, from father unto son,
     Bb           Am              Gm           C7
And me not being related,  I could never be the one.
       F               C         F            C
So I saved up all my silver, and took it to a man,
      Bb            Am               Gm              F
Who said he could deliver the harp, straight into my hand.

       Dm                 G
Three years I waited patiently, 
             C                            Bb
'Till he returned with the harp from the sea of Galilee.
       Dm                   G                   
He said there is one more thing I must ask, 
     C               Bb
But not of personal greed.
      Am                       Gm
But I wouldn't listen I just grabbed the harp,
          C7                F
And said take what you may need.

      F                     Bb                       C        F
Now Daniel looked quite satisfied, and the harp it seemed to glow.
                                 Bb                    C    Dm
But the price that Daniel had really paid, he did not even know.
 F                      C7    
Back to his brother he took his troubled mind.
       Bb                    F
And he said dear brother I'm in a bind.
But the brother would not hear his tale, 
        Bb                 F
he said Old Daniel's gonna land in jail.
F                  C               
So to his father Daniel did run,   
       F                   C
And he said oh father what have I done.
       Bb                    Am                    Gm
His father said son you've given in, you know you won your harp,
But you lost in sin.

       Dm                           G
Then Daniel took the harp and went high on the hill,
        C                               Bb
And he blew across the meadow like a whippoorwhill.
     Dm                           G
He played out his heart just the time to pass,
             C                       Bb                      F
But as he looked to the ground, he noticed no shadow did he cast.

Repeat Chorus
