Paroles When Papa Played The Dobro

Le - Par .

My papa was a hobo when they delivered me

We didn't have a doctor cause he couldn't pay the fee

But when the goin' got too bad to ease his misery


Papa played the dobro this a way and he'd go

When company would come around he kept the dobro hid
[ dobro ]
He knew he couldn't play the way the other players did


Why the guitar's resonator was a gallon bucket lid

[ dobro ]

But papa played the dobro this a way and he'd go


Well now that papa's gone away it's hanging by the flue

The top of it's rusted and the strings're rusty too
It won't ever sound the way that it did when it was new

When papa played the dobro this a way and he'd go

[ dobro ]
