Daddy Never Was Caddy Kind

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