Kay Adams – She Didn't Color Daddy lyrics

I'm with my little girl the only friend left in the world
So I gave her a book to color on
Just to pass the time away this had been her longest day
Everything is lonely with him gone
I laughed when I first looked at the pictures in her book
The way she colored everything all wrong
But this chill came over me as I realized that she
Had colored things as she felt baby long
She colored mommy blue with brown eyes crying
She made our house as grey as the dawn
She made the sun as black as night as if to say it had no light
But she didn't color daddy cause he's gone
Oh yes I'm so blue and I've been crying and our home is as grey as the dawn
And the sun it gives no light every day is black as night
And she didn't color daddy cause he's gone
Oh no she didn't color daddy cause he's gone
