Daddy's Song Lyrics

Years ago I knew a man
He was my mother's biggest fan
We used to walk beside the sea
And he'd tell me how my life would be
When I grew up to be a man

Years ago we used to play
He used to laugh when I ran away
But when I fell and hurt my knee
He would run to comfort me
And the pain would go away

Years ago I knew a boy
He was his daddy's pride and joy
But when the daddy went away
It was such a rainy day
That he brought out all his toys

Now the momma did explain
Tryin' to take away the pain
But he just couldn't understand
That his father was not a man
And it all was just a game

The years have passed and so have I
Makin' it hard for me to cry
And if and when, I have a son
Let it all be said and done
Let that sadness pass him by

Years ago I knew a man
He was my mother's biggest fan
We used to walk beside the sea
And he'd tell me how my life would be
When I grew up to be a man

Years ago we used to play
He used to laugh when I ran away
But when I fell and hurt my knee
He would run to comfort me
And the pain would go away
