The younger kids are sleeping mama's working nights
You are heavy on my mind so I just thought I'd write
Money's hard to come by outside of that we're fine
Little brother talks about you almost all the time
Every night I say a little prayer that he'll keep watching over you
I know you think that no one cares but daddy I love you

I've never once heard mama say who was right or wrong
I just came home from school one day and she told me you were gone
You may not want to come back home and if you never do
Daddy it won't change the way I feel I'll always love you
Every night I say a little prayer...
Every night I say a little prayer...
