Lyrics

Daddy

Written By: Hannah Duckworth

Daddy, I know you're a strong guy,
I thought so when you used to twirl me above your head.
Daddy, I know you're a smart guy,
So why is the glass so heavy in your hand?
Daddy, you're the man I've looked up to my whole life,
but there were times when you weren't there for your children and your wife.

(Pre Chorus:)

Daddy, I always tried to understand, how the world could beat down so hard on one man,
to make him run away and hide with a bottle in his hand.
I still don't get it, but there are only certain people who can

CHORUS:

Did the Maker's Mark leave its scar on you?
Was the Southern Comfort too strong you couldn’t through?
Did the Captain of your ship get lost in a tidal wave of doubt?
Did you hang out with jack until he drowned your sorrows out?
Daddy, I'll always be your little girl, but I always wondered why something else
Ruled your whole world

(Verse 2)

Daddy, I know you're a brave guy,
You've been through a lot of things,
You've walked the world from a silver path, and had it taken from under your feet.
Daddy, I really missed you, when I was growing up,
I feel like you were too busy with other things, now I’m gone and time is up.

(Pre-chorus)

Daddy, I always tried to understand, and I know momma did too,
How something that couldn't even say a word
Had so much power over you

CHORUS:
Did the Maker's Mark leave its scar on you?
Was the Southern Comfort too strong you couldn’t fight through?
Did the Captain of your ship get lost in a tidal wave of doubt?
Did you hang out with jack until he drowned your sorrows out?
Daddy, I'll always be your little girl, but I always wondered why something else
Ruled your whole world.

(Bridge)

Now it's time to let you know I wasn't naive all along
I know what you were doing, when you were out 'til the break of dawn
You're the king of my world, so let the armored walls come down
Please stop this for me, before you lose your crown

(Breakdown)

In a truck with Jose down at Knob Creek,
When you wanted to just jump in did you stop and think of me, (stop and think of me)...

(Build-up)

Daddy, I'll always love you,
You sacrificed so much
To get me where I am today.
I really wished we had talked more
But after everything, I'm glad you're ok

CHORUS
Did the Maker's Mark leave its scar on you?
Was the Southern Comfort too strong you couldn’t fight through?
Did the captain of your ship get lost in a tidal wave of doubt?
Did you hang out with jack until he drowned your sorrows out?
Daddy, I'll always be your little girl, but I always wondered why something else
Ruled your whole world.
