Tammy Wynette – 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 so lonely with him gone

I laugh when I first look at the pictures in her book
The way she colored everything so wrong
But then a tear came over me as I realized that she
Had other things as she felt they belong

She colored mummy blue with brown eyes, crying
She made our home as great as the dawn
She made the sun as black as night
As if to say it have no life
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 great as the dawn
And the sun, it gives no light
Everyday is like the night
But she didn't color daddy 'cause he's gone
