Daddy

Song Author Donna Fargo Performer: Donna Fargo Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]Well I'm finally gonna write you that letter
That was owed you for a long long [D7]time   

I can't say much for me
But I do hope that ya'll are doing [G]fine

Well [C]how is Berry and Virginia
Are they still living down on the [G]farm
You [D7]know sometimes I get so lonesome daddy
I wish I'd never left [G]home


Are you working hard these days
Are you doing all the things the doctor said you oughta [D7]do   

Did you sell all your tobacco
Did the crops bring in what you thought they [G]would

Well I [C]might as well got to the point
Last night I tried to call you on the [G]phone
What I'm [D7]getting at
I guess is if I had the money daddy I'd come [G]home

Cause every [C]night I hear an old southbound [G]train whistle a-blowing
And [D7]daddy it's calling me [G]home


I've been to New York Chicago
Wheeling West Virginia and Nashville Tenne[D7]ssee   

And singers are as thick as fleas on a dog's back
By the way how's old [G]Lee  

And I [C]done changed my name so many times
I don't even know who I [G]am  
And [D7]daddy I sure miss them pinto beans
And corn bread and country [G]ham  


Now I know I should've listened when you said
I didn't have no business coming way out [D7]west   

That a girl belongs at home on the farm
Where she was born raising younguns like all the [G]rest

Well I [C]know it now that's why I'm writing
And why I tried to call you on the [G]phone
What I'm [D7]really trying to say
Is if you'll send me the money I'll come [G]home

Cause every [C]night I hear an old southbound [G]train whistle a-blowing
And [D7]daddy it's calling me [G]home

Cause every [C]night I hear an old southbound [G]train whistle a-blowing
And [D7]daddy it's calling me [C]h-om[G]e  


Well I'm finally gonna write you that letter
That was owed you for a long long time

I can't say much for me
But I do hope that ya'll are doing fine

Well how is Berry and Virginia
Are they still living down on the farm
You know sometimes I get so lonesome daddy
I wish I'd never left home

Are you working hard these days
Are you doing all the things the doctor said you oughta do

Did you sell all your tobacco
Did the crops bring in what you thought they would

Well I might as well got to the point
Last night I tried to call you on the phone
What I'm getting at
I guess is if I had the money daddy I'd come home

Cause every night I hear an old southbound train whistle a-blowing
And daddy it's calling me home

I've been to New York Chicago
Wheeling West Virginia and Nashville Tennessee

And singers are as thick as fleas on a dog's back
By the way how's old Lee

And I done changed my name so many times
I don't even know who I am
And daddy I sure miss them pinto beans
And corn bread and country ham

Now I know I should've listened when you said
I didn't have no business coming way out west

That a girl belongs at home on the farm
Where she was born raising younguns like all the rest

Well I know it now that's why I'm writing
And why I tried to call you on the phone
What I'm really trying to say
Is if you'll send me the money I'll come home

Cause every night I hear an old southbound train whistle a-blowing
And daddy it's calling me home

Cause every night I hear an old southbound train whistle a-blowing
And daddy it's calling me h-ome
