MY DADDY IS ONLY A PICTURE (Thomas Dilbeck) Dick Thomas & His Nashville Ramblers - 1948 Eddy Arnold - 1948 As recorded by DICK THOMAS: I asked the little boy to call his Daddy He said he couldn't and sighed And when I asked him what was wrong Here's what the little boy replied My Daddy is only a picture In a frame that hangs on the wall Each day I talk to my Daddy But he never talks at all I tell him all of my secrets And all of my little plans And from the way that he smiles at me I know he understands The angels took Daddy to Heaven When I was just goin' on three But I'll bet they never told him How blue and lonesome we'd be I try to cheer up my Mommy When the tears roll down her face My Daddy is only a picture But I'm tryin' to take his place (Instrumental Break) I try to cheer up my Mommy When the tears roll down her face My Daddy is only a picture But I'm tryin' to take his place ******************** As recorded by EDDY ARNOLD: I asked a little boy to call his Daddy He said he couldn't and sighed And when I asked him what was wrong Here's what the boy replied My Daddy's only a picture In a frame that hangs on the wall And when I talk to my Daddy He never talks at all I tell him all my secrets And all my little plans And by the way he smiles at me I know that he understands The angels took Daddy to heaven When I was just going on three I know he wouldn't leave us If he knew how lonesome we'd be I try to cheer up my Mommy When the tears roll down her face My Daddy's only a picture But I'm trying to take his place (Contributed by ebollendorf - August 2005) (Updated by Mel Priddle - January 2013)
