lyrics

Daddy goes out from dawn til dusk
He's looking for a job that pays
He says I know we're living in a world that's just
And I'm gonna get it one of these days-
He says it's my fault we're in this boat
And it won't be long til we drown
I swear I wanna get you to the other side
But I'm the one who's weighing it down-
Well I have seen the future, daddy,
And I know you're gonna be fine
Chin up, honey, like you always told me
Now I wanna see you smile
Daddy don't cry-

Daddy got lost a couple years back
And he don't know how to find his way
He said I had my map, I had my facts
And I don't know where I went astray-
He says it's my fault we're in these woods
And the night is falling fast
I swear I wanna get you to the other side
But I still can't find the path-
Well I have seen the future, daddy
And I know we'll get out alive
Chin up, honey, like you always told me
Now I wanna see you smile
Daddy don't cry-

Daddy comes home with a heavy heart
And he's buckling under the weight
He says if only I could take it back to the start
But now I'm shouldering a burden too great-
He says it's my fault, I made my choice
Now all I can do is pray
I swear I'm gonna get Him to hear my voice
But I wanna know how long it'll take-
Well I have seen the future so daddy
Don't you go on taking blame
Win or losing, it's worth the choosing
And I love you just the same
Daddy don't cry.
