Your Mother's Eyes

Song Author Mel Tillis Performer: Mel Tillis Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]My children come sit here and [G7]hold to daddy's [C]hands
For I must tell you something that [D7]I don't under[G7]stand
[F]Lately we've been living in the [C]shadows of sur[F]prise
Since [C]I'm not the only man [G7]in your mother's [C]eyes

I can't say it's my fault and [G7]I won't say it's [C]hers
Cause I might have neglected when [D7]her need for me oc[G7]curred
[F]But we're still a family and [C]must rea[F]lize
That [C]I'm not the only man [G7]in your mother's [C]eyes

[F]No I'm not the [G7]only man in [F]her eyes any[C]more
And [D7]soon she'll be leaving [G7]walking out the door

And [C]things won't be easy [G7]with her not a[C]round
And the shame that's now with us [D7]will be hard to live [G7]down   
[F]So children bear with me [C]promise daddy you'll [F]try  
Since [C]I'm not the only man [G7]in your mother's [C]eyes
Since I'm not the only man [G7]in your mother's [F]e-y  [C]es  

My children come sit here and hold to daddy's hands
For I must tell you something that I don't understand
Lately we've been living in the shadows of surprise
Since I'm not the only man in your mother's eyes

I can't say it's my fault and I won't say it's hers
Cause I might have neglected when her need for me occurred
But we're still a family and must realize
That I'm not the only man in your mother's eyes

No I'm not the only man in her eyes anymore
And soon she'll be leaving walking out the door

And things won't be easy with her not around
And the shame that's now with us will be hard to live down
So children bear with me promise daddy you'll try
Since I'm not the only man in your mother's eyes
Since I'm not the only man in your mother's e-yes
