I Never Knew My Daddy

	  		Intro: C 

tabchorus
Am Well, I never new my daddy, who sailed the ocean blue C F G He gave me life before he died, a child he never knew Am Em He fought a hundred heroes, my kinfolk used to tell Dm Am F G To be beside his pretty bride - he loved her very well C G C Oh, I never new my daddy, who sailed the ocean blue

Verse 1:

Am When she waved him off to war, she didn?t tell him then F C About the child she carried soon to come Am And as he sailed away, she cried for him and prayed F C G For his safe returning when the fight was won Am Em But the summer turned to winter and winter soon was gone F G C As she patiently would wait for him alone Am Em And the child that grew within her, so proud in spring was born F G C G7 But my daddy never made the journey home

Verse 2:

Am Then I grew so strong and tall, my hair was flaxen gold F C But mother?s hair had turned to silver grey Am And though she?d give a smile and laugh with me awhile F C I knew she still remembered yesterday Am Em I would see her at the window, a-gazin? down the road F G C With a crumpled, faded letter in her hand Am Em And she?d tell me with her eyes all the sadness of goodbyes F G C G7 From a summertime when once my life began
