Indigo Girls – Daddy's All Gone lyrics

Don't have much say
But I call you up anyway
Just to try and tell you the way
That I feel today
Oh I miss you baby

Sure Im on the road
I don't need to say much more
Im just the same old well known stranger
That I was before
Seems like yesterday now

Daddys all gone
Hes just halfway home
Hes holding on to the telephone
Saying please don't let the show go on

There's a bus every other hour
Even a midnight train yeah
But that don't leave me the power to see your face again
Its not that simple anymore

Your see there's a room full of smiling faces
And there's a man standing by the door
Oh and he says it's time we take our places
And get down on the floor
Oh I'd like to kill him baby
Ah ah no now

Daddys all gone
Hes just halfway home
Hes holding on to the microphone
Singing please don't let the show go on
