Dolly Parton Daddy Did His Best Lyrics

Last updated: 04/05/2007 11:00:00 AM

I REMEMBER WHEN MY DADDY WORKED ALL DAY
FOR JUST A DOLLAR AND HE NEVER SAVED A PENNY
BUT AT LEAST THE BILLS WERE PAYED

I NEVER SEEN A MAN WORKED HALF AS HARD
AND COME HOME HALF A TIRED THEN GIVE THE
LORD A TIP OF ALL HE MADED

CHORUS:
DADDY SAID I'M MAKING PAYMENT ON THE MANSION
AND SO MANY TIME HE TOLD ME THIS OLD WORLD
IS NOT HOME AND HE TOLD HE BEEN PROMISE HE RECEIVE
A FAIR REWARD DADDY DID THE BEST HE COULD
AND LEFT THE REST UP TO THE LORD

NOW I NEVER SEEN A MAN THAT HAD NO REASON FOR
COMPLAINING BUT HE SMILE AT ME EXPLAINING
HOW HE NEVER WALKED ALONE

WHEN THEY CALLED ME TO HIS DEATH BED I REMEMBER
HOW MY DADDY JUST LOOKED UP AND SMILE AND SAID I'M
GOING HOME

REPEAT CHORUS.

INSTRUMENTAL

SEEN MY DADDY LEFT THIS WORLD FOR ONE MUCH BETTER
I'VE BEEN WATCHING PEOPLE WORRYING MORE AND WORKING
FOR THINGS THEY CAN FORD

IN A WORLD THAT FILLED WITH PROBLEMS NO ONE
EVER FOUND THE ANSWERS TO THE THINGS MY DADDY
LEFT UP TO THE LORD

DADDY DID HIS BEST AND LEFT THE REST UP TO THE LORD
