Nelson: I wrote a song called, "Family Bible," one time1. Do you remember that song?
Cash: Mmm, I love that s... Yeah.
Applause.
Cash: What key you do that in?
Nelson: I do it in A.
Cash: A, and it modulates to what?
Nelson plays a few notes and hums the song:
Helson: Then it goes into an F-sharp minor.
Cash: I figured it would.
Nelson laughs.
Humming and guitar plucking.
Cash: I'll just look at my watch during that part.
Nelson: Yeah, during that F-sharp minor.
Cash: What're we waitin' for?
Nelson: Not me.

Nelson:
There's a family bible on the table.
Applause.
Each page is torn and hard to read.
But the family bible on the table,
Will ever be my key to memories.

At the end of day when work was over,
And when the evenin' meal was done,
Dad would read to us from the family bible,
And we'd count our many blessin's one by one.

Both:
I can see us sittin' 'round the table,
Find more similar lyrics on http://mp3lyrics.com/pPWwAs from the family bible dad would read,
I can hear my mother softly singin',
"Rock of ages, rock of ages, cleft for me."

Nelson:
Now this old world of ours is filled with trouble.
But this old world would, oh, so better be,
If we'd find more bibles on the table,
And mothers singing, "Rock of ages, cleft for me."

Both:
I can see us sittin' 'round the table,
As from the family bible dad would read,
Nelson:
And I can hear my mother softly singin',
Both:
"Rock of ages, rock of ages, cleft for me.
Rock of ages, rock of ages, cleft for me."

Applause.

1Since this song was written by Breeland/Buskirk/Gray, It's likely that Willie
meant he RECORDED it one time. Or he contributed to the piece and just wasn't
listed on the liner notes.
