Conway Twitty — Don't Cry Daddy lyrics

Today I stumbled from my bed
With thunder crashing around my head
My pillow still wet From last nights tears
And as I think of giving up
A voice inside my coffee cup
Keeps crying out And ringing in my ears.

Don't cry daddy
Daddy, please don't cry
Daddy, you've still got me, Jimmy and Johnny
Together we'll find a brand new mommy
Daddy, daddy, please laugh again
Daddy ride us on your back again
Oh, daddy, please don't cry.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/conway-twitty-dont-cry-daddy-lyrics.html ]
Why must children be the first
To feel the pain and hurt the worst
It's true somehow it don't seem right
And ev'ry time I cry I know
It hurts my little children so
I wonder will it be the same tonight?

Don't cry daddy
Daddy, please don't cry
Daddy, you've still got me, Jimmy and Joni
Together we'll find a brand new mommy
Daddy, daddy, please laugh again
Daddy ride us on your back again.

Oh, daddy, please don't cry
Well daddy, please don't cry...
