Lyrics

WHY DADDY WHY

Words & Music byDarryl S. Brannen

V.1) I WAS SEVEN YEARS OLD WHEN MY MAMA SAT ME DOWN TO SAY
"SON, I'VE GOT BAD NEWS, YOUR DADDY'S MOVIN' OUT TODAY"
WHEN HE WALKED OUT THE DOOR WITH BAG IN HAND
HE SAID, "YOU'LL ALWAYS BE MY LITTLE MAN"
THEN HE PULLED DOWN THE DRIVE AND WAS GONE BEFORE
I EVER HAD THE CHANCE TO SAY........

C.) DADDY WHY DID YOU HAVE TO SAY GOODBYE
I KNOW I PROMISED NOT TO CRY
BUT THAT WAS THEN AND THIS IS NOW
YOU'RE LEAVIN' ME LONELY
THERE'S WORDS TO SAY AND THINGS UNDONE
BETWEEN A FATHER AND A SON
BUT, STILL YOU SAY GOODBYE
SO, TELL ME WHY DADDY WHY?

V.2) I WAS WORKIN' THIRD SHIFT AT THE FACTORY WHEN THE CALL CAME IN
THEY SAID YOUR DADDY'S BEEN IN A BAD ONE OUT ON HIGHWAY 10
IT WAS SEVERAL DAYS LATER TILL I FELT THE PAIN
STANDING WITH A PREACHER IN THE POURIN' RAIN
I CLOSED MY EYES AND BEGAN TO PRAY......

C.) REPEAT

BR.) I TRIED TO UNDERSTAND YOUR WAYS
AND THE DISTANCE THAT YOU KEPT
REMEMBERING ALL THE LONELINESS
AND THE MANY NIGHTS I WEPT
SO, I PRAY THAT IF THE GOOD LORD
GIVES ME WISDOM FOR EACH DAY
I'LL NEVER HEAR MY LITTLE BOY SAY.......CHORUS

C.) REPEAT, TAG, END.
