Daniel And The Sacred Harp


G d

Daniel, daniel and the sacred harp,

C g

Dancing through the clover.

C bm

Daniel, daniel would you mind,

D7 g

If i look it over.


G c d7 g

I heard of this famous harp years ago back in my home town

C d em

But i sure never thought old daniel be the one to come and bring it around

G d c g

Tell me daniel how the harp came into your posession.

D c g

Are you one of the chosen few who will march in the the procession?

C em

And daniel said:

G d g d

The sacred harp was handed down, from father unto son,

C bm am d7

And me not being related, i could never be the one.

G d g d

So i saved up all my silver, and took it to a man,

C bm am g

Who said he could deliver the harp, straight into my hand.

Em a

Three years i waited patiently,

D c

'till he returned with the harp from the sea of galilee.

Em a

He said there is one more thing i must ask,

D c

But not of personal greed.

Bm am

But i wouldn't listen i just grabbed the harp,

D7 g

And said take what you may need.

G c d g

Now daniel looked quite satisfied, and the harp it seemed to glow.

C d em

But the price that daniel had really paid, he did not even know.

G d7

Back to his brother he took his troubled mind.

C g

And he said dear brother i'm in a bind.


But the brother would not hear his tale,

C g

He said old daniel's gonna land in jail.

G d

So to his father daniel did run,

G d

And he said oh father what have i done.

C bm am

His father said son you've given in, you know you won your harp,


But you lost in sin.

Em a

Then daniel took the harp and went high on the hill,

D c

And he blew across the meadow like a whippoorwhill.

Em a

He played out his heart just the time to pass,

D c g

But as he looked to the ground, he noticed no shadow did he cast.
