My Daddy Never Was
by Randy Travis

Album: Passing Through


My boss will tell you that I've been to work all week on time
That I ain't had no liquor on my breathe
Ain't no kinda' secret, I've been known to take a drink
And it's made me do some things that I regret

Loretta said this ain't no kind of way to raise a family
And one night she called it quits and called a cab
She left her clothes out on the clothes line
And the dishes in the sink
So I guess she knows that she ain't coming back

Well I just want to see my kids
I just want to hold my girls
Heaven knows I ain't got much of nothing else in this ole world
I just want to be around enough to know that they've been loved
I just want to be their daddy, my daddy never was

Now lately she's been knowin' this old boy she met in church
And I can't say she's wrong for wanting more
I gave him the right to tell my wife that I can't come around
The night I knocked a hole in her front door
And Loretta tooks my keys and she made me wait outside
But she didn't call the law she called a cab
And as I pulled away I saw something in her eyes
So I reckon that she knows I ain't so bad

I just want to see my kids
I just want to hold my girls
Heaven knows I ain't got much of nothing else in this ole world
I just want to be around enough to know that they've been loved
I just want to be their daddy, my daddy never was

Well my boss will tell you that I've been to work all week on time
And I ain't had no liquor on my breathe
