WHY DADDY WHY
Words & Music by Cliff Darby
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?

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.......
