The Games That Daddies Play  Conway Twitty

By Conway Twitty
rmofle at
He put his [D]arms around her shoulder and with a voice that sounded older
He said, "[D]Mom, I got something on my [A]mind
[A]I don't wanna bother you but I sure need to talk to you
[A]If you can only spare the [D]time
And [D]Mom I hope you understand how much I love and need you
And I [D7]don't want you to take this the wrong [G]way
But [D]don't you think I'm old enough and [A]big enough and strong enough
To [A]play the games that Daddies [D]play”
[D]My friend Billy Parker's dad came by today to see me
And he [D]wondered if I'd like to [A]go
with [A]him and Billy on a hike and maybe camp out overnight
the [A]way I've seen 'em do in picture [D]shows
And [D]there's one thing I'd like to do and maybe if I ask him to
He'd [D7]sit and talk with me man to [G]man
We'd [D]only be gone overnight and [A]I could find out what it's like
to [A]play the games that Daddies [D]play
Key Change
She [E]quickly turned to hide the tears from her son of seven years
He [E]didn't know she'd read between the [B7]lines
He'd [B7]never really known his dad and although he'd never ask
She [B7]knew exactly what was on his [E]mind
She [E]searched her mind in desperation, six long years of separation
[E7]Dimmed the words she knew she had to [A]say
I [E]hope you're never big enough or [B7]old enough or bold enough
To [B7]play the games that Daddies [E]play
I [B7]know you need and want his love but, Son, you're the victim of
A[B7]nother kind of game that Daddies [E]play
