Lyrics
Daddy My Daddy

My daddy has gone - off to fight a war
He's gone--- and left us alone
He had to go - far away from home
Daddy oh daddy my own

I remember the day - my daddy went away
A tear drop fell from my eye
A tear stain is there - that won't wash away
Now daddy oh daddy I pray
Chorus
Daddy oh daddy - please come home soon
We love you and we miss you so
We miss your smile - and kind gentle face
And mommy just can't take your place
Lead
The days are so long - and worrisome too
And mommy is lonesome and blue
She's longing for you - faithful and true
It's just not a home - without you
Chorus
Daddy oh daddy - please come home soon
We love you and we miss you so
We miss your smile - and kind gentle face
And mommy just can't take your place
