Little girl come around, don’t walk away
I ain’t the devil, don’t care what your mama say
Daddy’s going away, won’t see me no more
But before I go I got something to say

At just 22, barely on my own
Drunk in a barroom, 4th of July down back home
Well the other man, I shot him in the gut
The police came and all I could do is run

Lord’s gonna take me away
I ain’t a bad man, he just built me this way
Caught for a crime done 10 years ago
Ain’t touched a gun since that day

Been on the low so many days
I left your mama, had to go away
I went away so you and she could remain to be free
I needed some time to get away from me


It’s OK, don’t be afraid
Every dollar and dime I owed to you has been paid
And when I go, It’ll be alright
Cause you’re on your daddy’s mind tonight
