My Daddy is Only a Picture (Thomas C. Dilbeck) I ask a little boy to call his daddy He said he couldn't and sighed And when I ask him what was wrong Here's what the 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 he smiles at me I know he understands. The angels took daddy to heaven When I was just going on three But I'll bet they never told him How blue and lonesome we'd be. I tried to cheer up my mommy When the tears rolled down her face My Daddy Is Only A Picture But I'm trying to take his place. Repeat last verse. Recorded by Eddy Arnold Words and music by GG Apr98
