Don't Cry Daddy

This song is by Conway Twitty and appears on the album She Needs Someone to Hold Her (When She Cries) (1973).

Today I stumbled from my bed
With thunder crashing around my head
My pillow still wet
From last nights tears
And as I think of giving up
A voice inside my coffee cup
Keeps crying out
And ringing in my ears.

Don't cry daddy
Daddy, please don't cry
Daddy, you've still got me, Jimmy and Johnny
Together we'll find a brand new mommy
Daddy, daddy, please laugh again
Daddy ride us on your back again
Oh, daddy, please don't cry.

Why must children be the first
To feel the pain and hurt the worst
It's true somehow it don't seem right
And ev'ry time I cry I know
It hurts my little children so
I wonder will it be the same tonight?

Don't cry daddy
Daddy, please don't cry
Daddy, you've still got me, Jimmy and Joni
Together we'll find a brand new mommy
Daddy, daddy, please laugh again
Daddy ride us on your back again.

Oh, daddy, please don't cry
Well daddy, please don't cry
