My Daddy Is Only a Picture  Eddy Arnold

Recorded by Eddy Arnold 1948
Lyrics and music by Thomas C. Dilbeck
I [G]asked a little [D7]boy to call his [G]daddy
He [D7]said he couldn't and [G]sighed
And [B7]when I asked him [Em]what was wrong
[A7]here's what the little boy r[D7]eplied
My [D7]Daddy is only a [G]picture, in a [D]frame that hangs on the [G]wall[G7]
Each [C]day I t[Cm]alk to my [G]daddy[Em], but [A7]he never talks at [D7]all
I [D7]tell him all of my [G]secrets and [D7]all of my little [G]plans[G7]
and [C]from the [Cm]way he [G]smiles at[Em] me, I [A7]know he [D7]unders[G]tands
The [D7]angels took Daddy to [G]heaven, when [D7]I was just goin' on [G]thre[G7]e
But I[C]'ll bet [Cm]they never [G]told him[Em] - how [A7]blue and lonesome We'd [D7]be
I [D7]try to cheer up my [G]mommie, when the [D7]tears roll down her [G]face[G7]
My [C]daddy is [Cm]only a [G]picture[Em], but I'm [A7]tryin' to [D7]take his [G]place
