DON'T TELL MY LITTLE GIRL (Kris Kristofferson / Eddie White) Johnny Darrell - 1966 The stranger lay dyin,' I could tell he'd been cryin' On the ground where he'd laid the whole night long At first I thought he was prayin', but then I heard him sayin' Please don't tell my little girl why Daddy's gone I thought when I left her I could make her life better And I never meant to stay away so long But the wine and the women just kept my head a swimmin' And the bars became my home away from home You see I promised when I left her I'd be coming home again When spring had come to melt away the snow And I know she still waits for me to come and take her little hand And go to places that we used to go So won't you please send my daughter these little things I bought her And tell her that I won't be gone too long If you've got time for a letter, tell her I won't forget her Just don't tell my little girl why Daddy's gone You see I promised when I left her I'd be coming home again When spring had come to melt away the snow And I know she still waits for me to come and take her little hand And go to places that we used to go So won't you please send my daughter these little things I bought her And tell her that I won't be gone too long If you've got time for a letter, tell her I won't forget her Just don't tell my little girl why Daddy's gone Just don't tell my little girl why Daddy's gone (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - September 2011)
