They brought me a letter from my little girl my sweet little baby with long golden curls
The address was printed with crayon of red a letter to daddy and here's what it said

Hi daddy how are you I guess I'm okay except this bad cold
But I feel like a big girl now cause yesterday I was seven years old
And that little puppy dog you sent me why he's just as cutest as he can be
But daddy it wasn't just like a birthday why couldn't you have been here with me
Daddy I don't understand what happened in court that day
I ask mommy where you are and she just says daddy's gone away
Is it something that I did wrong daddy you never did fuss at me
But if you'll come home I'll climb upon your lap every night
And I'll be just as sweet as I can be
Daddy each night I ask God to make you keep loving me the way you used to
Oh daddy if I'd give mommy this letter I know she won't mail it to you
So I'm gonna look all over this city until I find you
Then maybe you'll see just how much we need you daddy mommy and me
And I love you daddy

They told me how she started walking downtown
There at the crossroads the car's struck her down
She lay in the ditch all covered with sand a letter to daddy was clutched in her hand
