Lyrics

DADDY, PLEASE DON'T GO

He turned at the corner
And drove down the street
He glanced at his daughter
Sittin quietly in her seat
Lookin lost in her thoughts
As he pulled up to the curb
She held out her arms
As he unbuckled her

CHORUS:
Daddy, please don't go
She cried out to him
Please just stay here with us
And we'll be a family again
I know Momma loves you
She still cries every night
If I did something wrong
I'll try to make it all right
Daddy, please don't go
Daddy, please don't go

Her words stabbed his heart
And her look said it all
Cause the life that she'd known
Was now just mem'ries to recall
As he walked up the steps
To the home that they'd shared
He searched for the words
To show how much he still cared

CHORUS:
Daddy, please don't go
She cried out to him
Please just stay here with us
And we'll be a family again
I know Momma loves you
She still cries every night
If I did something wrong
I'll try to make it all right
Daddy, please don't go
Daddy, please don't go

He said I know that you're hurtin
I know you don't understand
But your Momma and I love you
Though life didn't go like we'd planned
He said I'll always be near you
As he gently kissed her cheek
I'm gonna call you on Wednesday
And I'll try to see you next week

BRIDGE:
His eyes filled with tears
As he slowly drove away

CHORUS:
Daddy, please don't go
She cried out to him
Please just stay here with us
And we'll be a family again
I know Momma loves you
She still cries every night
If I did something wrong
I'll try to make it all right
Daddy, please don't go
Daddy, please don't go
