[C]The love between the two of us was [Dm]dying
And it [C]got so bad I knew I had to [Dm]leave
But [C]halfway down that h[C7]ighway when I t[F]urned around I s[D7]aw   
My [C]little daughter [Dm]running [G7]after [C]me  

[Dm]Cry-   [G7]ing    [C]daddy don't you walk so fast
[F]Daddy don't you walk so fast
Daddy [C]slow down [E7]some cause you're [Am]makin' me [D7]run   
[C]Daddy don't you [G7]walk so [C]fast

(for original key of F)

The love between the two of us was dying
And it got so bad I knew I had to leave
But halfway down that highway when I turned around I saw
My little daughter running after me

Cry-ing daddy don't you walk so fast
Daddy don't you walk so fast
Daddy slow down some cause you're makin' me run
Daddy don't you walk so fast

Now it broke my heart to tell my little daughter
That her daddy had to run to catch a train
She had no way of knowin' I was leavin' home for good
I turned around and there she was again

And she said daddy don't you walk so fast
My darling cried daddy don't you walk so fast
Daddy slow down some cause you're makin' me run
Daddy don't you walk so fast

If only for the sake of my sweet daughter
I just had to turn back home right there and then
And try to start a new life with the mother of my child
I couldn't bear to hear those words again

She cried and said daddy don't you walk so fast
Daddy don't you walk so fast
Daddy slow down some cause you're makin' me run
Daddy don't you walk so fast
Daddy slow down some cause you're makin' me run
Daddy don't you walk so fast
