My Daddy Is Only A Picture
   ------Eddy Arnold

MY DADDY IS ONLY A PICTURE
Writer Tommy Dilbeck

I asked a little boy to call his daddy He said he couldn't and sighed And when I asked him what was wrong Here's what the little boy replied. My Daddy is only a picture, In a frame that hangs on the wall Each day I talk to my daddy, But he never talks at all. I tell him all of my secrets And all of my little plans And from the way he smiles at me, I know he understands. The angels took Daddy to heaven, When I was just goin' on three But I'll bet they never told him How blue and lonesome we'd be. I try to cheer up my mommie, When the tears roll down her face My daddy is only a picture, But I'm tryin' to take his place.
