Lyrics

I was just a little boy when Daddy
Walked into the room on Christmas night
Holdin' all those special presents in his arms
That he wrapped up so nice

Daddy always seemed to come around
On Christmas Day, just like ol' Santa Claus
Then we'd open up our presents with our Daddy
But I knew he'd soon be gone

Daddy seemed to find another life, another place
Somewhere with someone new
And I always wondered why my Momma
Wasn't there inside that living room

Well my little brother's eyes would start to glow
Meeting Daddy at the door
But I always wondered if he understood
Daddy don't need us any more

No, I don't come from a family
That shares the Christmas love and joy
'Cause my Daddy he walked out on me
When I was a little boy

So make yourself a Christmas list
And remember to put Daddy on the top
'Cause you know he's got that special kind of love
That's never gonna stop

And on that Christmas Day
When you're giving him that special gift you've found
Just put him in your arms and thank the Lord
That your Daddy's still around

No, I don't come from a family
That shares the Christmas love and joy
'Cause my Daddy, he walked out on me
When I was a little boy

Look my Daddy, he walked out on me
And now he's nowhere to be found
So count your blessings every Christmas Eve
That your Daddy's still around

Count your blessings every Christmas Eve
That your Daddy's still around
