We'd get together in a family circle and sing out loud
Well daddy sang bass, mama sang tenor
Me and little brother would join right in there
Cause singin' 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
Well daddy sang bass, mama sang tenor....
Well this mama doesn't sing tenor (more of a second soprano myself.)
And 'daddy' does not sing.... period.
But we do consider ourselves a "musical family" none the less.
This mama has played piano for about 29 years now.
'Daddy' plays a couple guitars...
...along with the banjo and mandolin.
I had a photo shoot with my husband's antique mandolin recently. It was passed down to my husband from his grandfather.
Many old hymns were played on this mandolin by my husband's grandfather while his grandmother would play the organ.
Amazing grace.... how sweet the sound....
