Eminemmylou – My Daddy Died lyrics

Well my daddy died
I know he wasn't perfect
'cause he made my mamma cry
But my daddy died and I feel bad inside
I got a week off work called
compassionate leave
But when I got back was not
expected to grieve
Still my daddy died and my heart feels broken inside
He used to say don't you worry
'bout that
Cause I'm worried enough for the
both of us
And then he'd smile

He said just remember what you are
A Mariani with your head held high
You can set your mind to just anything
And don't you let troubles get
in your wing
Cause you're my joy and pride
Like a little bird who could fly so high
Now the big bird's died
And me and my mamma we sit and cry
My daddy died...
