Daddy’s Picture
Joseph E. Reed

Verse 1
Dear Daddy,
I know that you are far away
Sometimes I even wonder
If everything’s gonna be okay

I know that they sent you
I know that you’re a very brave man
But, dear Daddy, please come home
Just as soon as you can

I’ve got your picture here
I keep it with me all the time
I hold voice inside my heart
Mama and I are praying
That everything will be just fine
And Daddy, I’m gonna love you
Wherever you are

Verse 2
Now last night
I heard reports on CNN
Talking about the war out there
And my mind is filled with questions

Like, “Are things okay with you?”
And, “When’s this war gonna end?”
Daddy, I just pray it’s soon
So that you can come home again


Why did you have to go?
Sometimes I just don’t know
But I have your promise that you will return
And Daddy, I won’t ever let you go

Chorus X2
