I Don't Call Him Daddy Lyrics

It was six in the morning
When I made the county line
There's someone I got to talk to
I can't get it off my mind
He is just a kid and
He's in a pretty rough spot
Two dimes to make a phone call
That's about all I got
How's my boy today
I know its been three weeks
But you know how far I've got to go
These days to make ends meet
How's your mama
Now with her new live in friend
Oh how I hate the wounds
That never seem to mend
He said "i don't call him daddy
But he takes care of things
When you pick me up on friday
Are you gonna bring me anything
Oh don't worry dad you know
It don't matter what we do
Cause I don't call him daddy
He could never be like you

God bless the little hearts
There the ones who really pay
When mom and dad can't get a long
And they go there separate ways
In a way I'm glad there's some one there
To fill the empty space
Tears of understanding stream down a dirty face
{repeat chorus}

Be like you be like you
He is quite a little man
Growing up as fast as he can
And I don't get to see him
Half as mush as I had planed
There's so much I need to tell him
So precious little time
A little rain on the window
And a little wave good by
(repeat chorus twice to fade)
