Dolly Parton To Daddy Lyrics

Last updated: 03/03/2005 10:00:00 AM

Mama never seemed to miss the finer things of life
If she did she never did say so to daddy
She never wanted to be more than mother and a wife
If she did she never did say so to daddy

The only thing that seemed to be important in her life
Was to make our house a home and make us happy
Mama never wanted any more than what she had
If she did she never did say so to daddy

He often left her all alone but she didn't mind the staying home
If she did she never did say so to daddy
And she never missed the flowers and the gifts he never gave her
If she did she never did say so to daddy

Being took for granted was a thing that she accepted
And she don't need those things to make her happy
She didn't seem to notice that he don't kiss and hold her
If she did she never did say so to daddy

One morning we awoke just to find a note
That mama carefully wrote and left to daddy
And as we began to read it our ears could not believe it
The words that she had written there to daddy

She said our kids are older now they don't need me very much
And I've gone in search for love I need so badly
I have needed you so long but I just can't keep holdin' on
She never meant to come back home if she did she never did say so to daddy
Goodbye to daddy
