The Angels Rejoiced

Bb A house not a home was a picture satin painted Eb Bb For sweet little sister and me Our daddy would frown while mother was praying F Bb His heart was so hardened that he would not believe Bb7 Eb Bb In anger he'd swear his voice cold and loud Bb F His Sundays were spent out with the gamblin crowd Bb Eb Bb I've never seen my daddy inside a house of God F Bb For Satan held his hand down the path of sin he trod SOLO Bb Not long ago our circle was broken Eb Bb When God called on mother one night Bb In a voice sweet and low her last words were spoken F Bb Asking our daddy to raise her children right Bb7 Eb Bb The angels rejoiced in heaven last night Bb F I heard my daddy praying dear God make it right Bb Eb Bb He was smiling and singing with tears in his eyes Bb F Bb While mother with the angels rejoiced last night F Eb Bb While mother with the angels rejoiced last night
