Papa Was A Good Man
Recorded by Charlie Rich
Written by Hal Bynum

C G7
It rained all the way to Cincinnati
C
With our mattress on top of the car
G7
Us kids were eatin' crackers and baloney
C
And papa kept on drivin' never stopped once at a bar

G7
Then mama started talkin' about Jesus
C
And how our lives could be from now on
G7
While papa bought a used tire in Columbus
C C7
Mama rocked the baby till all his tears were gone

F C
She said your papa is a good man and don't you kids forget it
F D7 G7
The whiskey's tryin' to ruin him but I know the Lord won't let it
F C Am
Then we sang Amazing Grace and Bringing In The Sheaves
C F C G7 C F C G7 C
Rock of Ages Rock of Ages cleft for me

Spoken:
G7
I guess we should have known papa never could quit drinking

The whiskey had too much hold on him
C
But he loved us and he did the best he could
G7
And every time our world would fall all around us

Mama packed everything we owned into some old car
C C7
And we’d start out for some new town

F C
She said your papa is a good man and don't you kids forget it
F D7 G7
The whiskey's tryin' to ruin him but I know the Lord won't let it
F C Am
Then we sang Amazing Grace and Bringing In The Sheaves
C F C G7 C F C
Rock of Ages Rock of Ages cleft for me
