Marianne Thomas - Dad's Song

Yesterday got a page and it said that my daddy died
But I couldn't cry we had a fight long time ago by the liqour store
Said I didn't want to see your face no more see
I know pops was just a man but how you hurt someone you love
I don't understand telephone rings and what am I supposed to do

Heaven can you hear me father can you help me on my knees and prayin'
Please come through my world is slowly dyin' and lord I'm really tryn'
It's been awhile since I last talked to you mama said everyone makes mistakes
If that's true then I really need to see your face so I'll know its gonna be ok (ooook)

I pulled up about five to see my people at my mamas house to see what they was talkin' 'bout
I haven't seen 'um in a long time (baby are you doin' fine)
Now it's time to tell 'em what's been on my mind
Who was there to wipe my tears away and who decided not to show up on my weddin' day
So y'all tell me what am I supposed to do I just need to hear from you


Livin' in this world ain't easy you want to give up sometimes and even though
I got my girl beside me a fathers love is hard to find
See every boy wants his daddy there fells like his daddy cares
Feels like his daddy will be there watchin' on his graduation day
And be there to take the pain away


To every daddy that might hear this song see one day you'll look up and your baby be grown yeah
You can't get back all the years that's past so while you have the chance you better make it last didn't get the chance to say goodbye and I wish that I could see you one more time
And now I gotta keep my mama strong guess you never miss something til' its gone!!

[Chorus: x3]

... Gonna be okay okay okay okay
In the midnight hour
Late in the evening
Even in the mornin' time
It's gonna be O
Said its gonna be alright
Said it gonna be
