Drive-by Truckers – Your Daddy Hates Me lyrics

I know your Daddy hates me and I got a room in hell reserved.
I know he wants to kill me and it抯 the least that I deserve
But I always loved your Daddy, that抯 something that I know you know.
Just sometimes don抰 do what I ought to, sometimes I yes when I should no.

I know your Daddy hates me and I drink more than a whale
But my failures ain抰 for lack of trying it抯 just a little too late now to prevail.
You always knew I was a screw up, long before I screwed us up.
You just said it endeared you to me, but in the end you just gave up

And I always loved your Daddy, I loved your Mama even more
And I always loved their daughter, that抯 for sure.

I know your Daddy hates me, I know I抎 probably hate me too.
But, I also know you don抰 hate me, even though you抎 probably like to and ought to.
And it抯 a little too late for writing love songs, but I never did anything on time.
Happiness on your big adventure.
See you Darling down the line.
