Hank Williams – My Son Calls Another Man Daddy lyrics

Recorded by hank williams, sr.
Words and music by jewel house and hank williams, sr.

To-[c] night my heart is bowed in sor-[g] row
I can't keep the tears from my [c] eyes
My son calls an-[c7] other man [f] daddy
The [g7] right to his love, Ive been [c] denied.


My [f] son calls another man [c] daddy
Hell [d7] neer know my name nor my [g7] face
[f] God only knows how it [c] hurts me
For an-[g7] other to be in my [c] place.

Each night I laid there in prison
I pictured a future so bright
For he was the one ray of sunshine
That showed thru the darkest of nights.


Today his mother shares a new love
She just couldnt stand my disgrace
My son calls another man daddy
And longs for the love he can't replace.
