Lyrics

Tom's at the bar -With one more round of whiskey
Unemployed again- Cut backs at the mill
He wonders how- some get by so easy
'Cause it's hard to make a buck when you don't have that many skills

And he thinks back to the day his Daddy left
And he wonders if the man he'd loved had but one regret
'Cause twenty years of drinking never helped Tom to forget
He thinks back to the day his Daddy left

He'd been a FATHERLESS BOY the one at school
With the busted up shoes and matted hair
He'd been a FATHERLESS BOY hard to be cool
When you hear their whispers and feel them stare
Some things you learn to accept, left behind like a broken toy
A FATHERLESS BOY

Two states away- Jake steps to the plate
Swings with all his might- cheers rise from the crowd
Two shifts today- so his Mama's late and
As he rounds third base- he wonders- if his Daddy would be proud

Then he thinks back to the day his Daddy left
And he wonders if the man he loved still has one regret
'Cause seven months without him hasn't helped Jake to forget
He thinks back to the day his Daddy left

He was a FATHERLESS BOY the one at school
With the busted up shoes and matted hair
He was a FATHERLESS BOY hard to stay cool
When you try so hard to prove that you don't care
You've got your heart to protect, left behind like a broken toy
A FATHERLESS BOY

Bridge:
Tenderly Tom holds out Jake's picture
The barmaid smiles when he tells her "That's my son"
Then he sets his final drink upon it's coaster
For the first time, Tommy sees what he has done

To his FATHERLESS BOY the one at school
With the busted up shoes and matted hair-
His sweet FATHERLESS BOY trying to stay cool
Wondering why his daddy isn't there...
It's been so long since he's FELT joy.....

There's one less ...
FATHERLESS BOY the one at school
With the busted up shoes and matted hair
There's one less FATHERLESS BOY trying to stay cool
Wishing and hoping that his Daddy cares
But it's a lot to expect... When you're left behind like a broken toy-
A FATHERLESS BOY...
