INTRO
| D | F/D | G/D | D | C/D |


VERSE 1
  D
Today I stumbled from my bed
     F#
With thunder crashing in my head
       G
And my pillow still wet
                  | D | C/D |
From last night's tears
    D
And as I think of giving up
  F#
A voice inside my coffee-cup
     G
Kept crying out
              | C | A |
Ringing in my ears


CHORUS
          D
Don't cry daddy
                    | Em | A |
Daddy, please don't cry
       G                       A
Daddy, you've still got me and little Tommy
  D                   G
Together we'll find a brand new mommy
G [break]
Daddy, daddy, please laugh again
A [break]
Daddy ride us on your back again
    G  F#m  Em   G/A         [D]
Oh, da-a-a-addy, please don't cry


INTERLUDE
| D | F/D | G/D | D | C/D | D | C/D |


VERSE 2
D
Why are children always first
   F#
To feel the pain and hurt the worst
     G
It's cruel but somehow
                 | D | C/D |
It just don't seem right
       D
'Cause ev'ry time I cry I know
   F#
It hurts my little children so
      G
And I wonder 
                    | C | A |
Will it be the same tonight


CHORUS
          D
Don't cry daddy
                  | Em | A |
Daddy, please don't cry
       G                       A
Daddy, you've still got me and little Tommy
  D                   G
Together we'll find a brand new mommy
G [break]
Daddy, daddy, please laugh again
A [break]
Daddy ride us on your back again
    G  F#m  Em   G/A        | D | C/D |
Oh, da-a-a-addy, please don't cry
    G  F#m  Em [break] G/A [break]  [D]
Oh, da-a-a-addy,        please don't cry
           [ritardando]
