To Daddy  Emmylou Harris

[G]Mama never seemed
To miss the finer things of life
If she did she never did say so to [D]daddy

She never wanted to be more

Than mother and a wife
If she did she never did say so to [G]daddy
[G]The only thing that seemed

To be important in her life
Was to make our house a [G7]home and make us [C]happy

Mama never wanted
Any [G]more that what she had
If she [D]did she never did say so to d[G]addy
[G]He often left her all alone

She didn't mind the staying home
If she did she never did say so to [D]daddy

And she never missed the flowers

And the cards he never sent her
If she did she never did say so to [G]daddy
[G]Being took for granted

Was a thing that she accepted
And she didn't need those (G7)things to make her [C]happy

And she didn't seem to notice
That [G]he didn't kiss and hold her
If she [D]did she never did say so to [G]daddy
One [C]morning we awoke

Just to find a note
That mama carefully wrote and left to [D]daddy
And [C]as we began to read it

Our ears could not believe it
The words that she had written there to [D]daddy
She [G]said the kids are older now

They don't need me very much
And I've gone in search of [G7]love I need so [C]badly

I have needed you so long
But [G]I just can't keep holding on
She never meant to come back home
[D]She did she never did say so to [C]daddy
Goodbye to [G]daddy
