Words and music: Willie Nelson From: Guitar Picker - www.gospelmusic.org.uk FAMILY BIBLE [C] There's A Fam'ly [F] Bible on the [C] table Each [Am] page is torn and [D] hard to [G7] read But [C] The Fam'ly [F] Bible on the [C] table Will [F] ever be my [C] key to [G] memo-[C] ries. [C] At the close of [F] day when work was [C] over And [Am] when the evening [D] meal was [G7] done Dad would [C] read to us [F] from The Fam'ly [C] Bible And we'd [F] count our many [C] blessings [G7] one by [C] one. Refrain: I can [F] see us [Bb] sittin' 'round the [F] table When from The Fam'ly Bible Dad would [C] read (1) I can hear my [F] mother softly [C] singing (2) I can hear my [F] mama softly [C] singing Rock of Ages, [F] Rock of [C] Ages [G7] cleft for [C] me. This old world of ours is full of troubles But this world would oh, so better be If we'd find more Bibles on the table And mothers singing Rock of Ages cleft for me. Refrain:Home
