"Don't Cry Daddy"

(As recorded by Elvis Presley)
MAC DAVIS

Today I stumbled from my bed
With thunder crashing in my head
My pillow still wet, from last night's tears
And as I think of giving up
A voice inside my coffee cup
Kept crying out, ringing in my ears.

Don't cry daddy
Daddy please don't cry
Daddy you still got me and little Tommy
Together we'll find a brand new mommy
Daddy, daddy, please laugh again
Daddy ride us on your back again
Oh daddy please don't cry.

Why are children always first
To feel the pain and hurt the worst
It's true but somehow, it just don't seem right
'Cause ev'ry time I cry I know
It hurts my little children so
I wonder, will it be the same tonight.

Don't cry daddy
Daddy please don't cry
Daddy you still got me and little Tommy
Together we'll find a brand new mommy
Daddy, daddy, please laugh again
Daddy ride us on your back again
Oh daddy please don't cry.

Oh daddy, please don't cry.
