Daddy oh daddy, won't you answer me please
Daddy oh daddy, won't you answer me please
All day I stood by your coffin, tryin' to give my poor heart ease

I rubbed my hands over your head and whispered in your ear
I rubbed my hands over your head and whispered in your ear
And I want my man to know that your mama's near

Mmm... (hummed chorus)

You told me that you loved me, and I believed what you said
You told me that you loved me, and I believed what you said
And I wish that I could fall here across your coffin dead

When I left the undertakers, I couldn't help but cry
When I left the undertakers, I couldn't help but cry
And it hurt me so bad, to tell the man I love goodbye.
