I WANT A PARDON FOR DADDY (Charles E. Roat) Henry Burr - 1926 Vernon Dalhart - 1926 Also recorded by: Gene Autry; Slim Dusty. A dear little girl stood there crying By an old gloomy prison wall The warder so kind heard her sighing As he listened to her call She said she had come for her Daddy But the warden just shook his head For tears in his eyes quickly started As these words to him she said I want a pardon for Daddy For Mother is lonely and sad I know he'll go straight If they'll open the gate For Daddy was all that we had Last night while Mother was praying I prayed to the angels above I want a pardon for Daddy To bring back the Daddy we love (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2008)
