(V1)

Daddy has a real hard life, for 20 straight years my mom was his wife.

When she left us his heart was so broken, nothing around could help him with coping, but…

(Chorus 1)

2 Packs of Cigarettes, God it’s gonna lead to his heart attack.

A 12 pack or more a day what’s he doing, doesn’t even care that it will lead to his Ruin…

(V2)

Way back before I was even born, my Daddy served time in the Vietnam War he got a pat on the back, & a Purple Heart

Maybe that’s the reason he started…

(C2)

2 Packs of Cigarettes, God it’s gonna lead to his heart attack.

A 12 pack or more a day what’s he thinking, doesn’t look forward to nothing but drinking.

I wish he would open up. Talk about his feelings & just move on, but that ain’t something a soldier can do.

So he’ll just keep on nursing that brew…

(V3)

Now he’s 53 & on his 2nd wife. All they ever do is drink, cuss, & fight,

Her kids have no respect for him. He don’t deserve the life that he’s living…with…

(Repeat Chorus 1)

2 Packs of Cigarettes, God it’s gonna lead to his heart attack.

A 12 pack or more a day what’s he doing, doesn’t even care that it will lead to his Ruin…

(Bridge)

He always pushed me away. He never called me, not even on my Birthday.

For 15 years he forgot me, but now when he needs something, it’s me he’s calling. Expecting me to buy him…

(Repeat C2)

2 Packs of Cigarettes, God it’s gonna lead to his heart attack.

A 12 pack or more a day what’s he thinking, doesn’t look forward to nothing but drinking.

I wish he would open up. Talk about his feelings & just move on, but that ain’t something a soldier can do.

So he’ll just keep on nursing that brew… & 2 Packs of Cigarettes, 2 Packs of Cigarettes.

My Daddy has a real hard life.

(The End)
