Johnny Cash Sings “Daddy Sang Bass” Live at San Quentin

Carl Perkins, The Statler Brothers, The Carter Family and The Tennessee Three join Johnny Cash in this live performance of “Daddy Sang Bass” at San Quentin State Prison, February 1969.

Daddy sang bass,
Mama sang tenor.
Me and little brother would join right in there.
Singing 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.
