DADDY COME AND GET ME (Dolly Parton / Dorothy Jo Hope) Dolly Parton recorded 1969 In this mental institution, looking out through these iron bars, How could he put me in here, how could he go that far? Yes I need help but not this kind, he didn't love me from the start, But it's not my mind that's broken, it's my heart! Oh daddy come and get me and take me home with you, I'm depending on you daddy, there's nothing I can do! And you said that I could come to you if I ever was in need, But daddy I can't come to you, you'll have to come to me! When he said he loved another, I was crazy with jealousy; That's 'cause I was crazy over him and I couldn't stand to set him free! And I couldn't stand to lose him, and I cried and cried for days, And he said that I was crazy, but he just put me in here to get me out of his way! Daddy, come and get me! Oh daddy come and get me and take me home with you, I'm depending on you daddy 'cause there's nothing else I can do! And you said that I could come to you if I ever was in need, But daddy I can't come to you, you'll have to come to me! Oh daddy, come to me! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - February 2017)
