Wille Nelson & Merle Haggard.
Family Bible.
Album: Django & Jimmie.

Intro: A D A E7 A D A 

          Amaj7  D            A
There's a family Bible on the table,
     F#m     B                E7 
Each page is torn and hard to read,
A              D            A   A/B C#
But the family Bible on the table,
D               A      E7  A   E F#7
Will ever be my key to memories.

       A      D                 A
At the end of day when work was over,
    F#m      B       B7       E
And when the evening meal was done,
          A          D               A    A/B
Dad would read to us from the family Bible,
         D              A          E      A  B7
And we'd count our many blessings, one by one.

Chorus:
      D      G                 D
I can see us sitting round the table,
D                                    A
When from the family Bible dad would read,
      E7   A  D             A
I can hear my mother softly singing,
               D       A     E7        A   D  
"Rock of ages, Rock of ages, cleft for me".

Break: A E7 A D A 

         Amaj7        D               A
Now this old world of ours is full of trouble,
         F#m             B           E
And this old world would also better be,
        A         D             A     
If we'd find more Bibles on the tables,
C#m7        D               A     E7        A
And mothers singing rock of ages, cleft for me.

      D      G                 D
I can see us sitting round the table,
D                              Bm7   A                           
When from the family Bible dad would read,
              D             A
I can hear my mother softly singing,
               D       A    E         A
"Rock of ages, Rock of ages cleft for me",
D       A    E         D   A
Rock of ages cleft for me".
