Haggard, Merle - Daddy Won't Be Home Again For Christmas Lyrics




Daddy won't be home again for Christmas
But I just hope that this little check will fit
Daddy won't be home again for Christmas
Maybe this will serve to let you know I don't forget

The Christmas tree, where I'll be, won't be lighted
But the rain and cold will let us know December's here
Forgive me for the letters I don't answer
But I keep thinking I'll be home again each year

But daddy won't be home again for Christmas
Here's hoping that this little check will fit
Daddy won't be home again for Christmas
Maybe this will serve to let you know I don't forget

I know Santa Claus won't bring you all the things you need
Maybe he will be kinder if he knows
That I won't be home again this year to play his role
Besides I must fit in to wear his clothes

Daddy won't be home again for Christmas
But here's hoping that this little check will fit
No, daddy won't be home again for Christmas
But maybe this will serve to let you know I don't forget

    I lost my dad last year. This will be my second Christmas without him. We used to listen to this together when I was a kid. Hearing these songs again hurts, but makes it feel like he's still here
