Daddy Don’t Cry Chords

Today I stumbled from my bed
With thunder crashing in my head
  F                                C     A#
My pillow still wet from last night tears
   C                         E7
And as I think of giving up a voice inside my coffee-cup
    F                            A#    G7
Kept crying out and ringing in my ears

         C                          Dm   G7
Don't cry daddy   daddy please don't cry
     F                       G7
Daddy you've still got me and little Tommy
 C                   F
Together we'll find a brand new mommy
Daddy daddy please laugh again
Daddy ride us on your back again
F  Em  Dm G7           C
Oh dad-dy please don't cry

Why are children always first
To feel the pain and hurt the worst
    F                                   C     A#
It's true but somehow it just don't seem right
     C                          E7
Cause every time I cry I know it hurts my little children so
 F                            A#    G7
I wonder will it be the same tonight

Repeat #2

F  Em  Dm G7           C
Oh dad-dy please don't cry

About The Artist

Elvis Presley

Elvis Aaron Presley (January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977), also known simply as Elvis, was an American singer, musician and actor. He is regarded as one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century and is often referred to as the “King of Rock and Roll” or simply “the King”. His energized interpretations of songs and sexually provocative performance style, combined with a singularly potent mix of influences across color lines during a transformative era in race relations, led him to great success—and initial controversy.
