Don't Cry Daddy
Elvis Presley Lyrics


Today I stumbled from my bed
With thunder crashing in my head
My pillow still wet
From last night's tears
And as I think of giving up
A voice inside my coffee cup
Kept crying out
Ringing in my ears

Don't cry, daddy
Daddy, please don't cry
Daddy, you've still got me and little Tommy
And 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 are children always first
To feel the pain and the hurt the worst?
It's true but somehow
It just don't seem right
'Cause every 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 and little Tommy
And 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

Oh, daddy, please don't cry

My father just passed away this morning and this was his and our favorite song ever to listen to together, and just hearing it reminds me of his voice and it overwhelms me with so many emotions. I miss him so much.

I used to do an Elvis show... this is one song I could never sing... I have kids and I would break up in tears before I could hit the chorus.... Even today... just hearing the song... causes me to tear up.

It's sensitive, brilliantly written by Mac Davis and beautifully sung by Elvis. You're excused on this masterpiece but I'd really like to hear some of your Elvis covers.

Debbie Gillette

Beautiful song. My mother died around the time this was released so always takes me back to that period.
