So Long Dad

(Newman)


Home again
And the streets are not much cleaner
The quaint old southside scenery is quaint no more
I guess I'm older than before
Go up the stairs
Go down the hallway
To my daddy's door

Your girl is home, dad
She's found a beau
He's just the sweetest guy I'll ever know
I hope you'll like him dad
I hope you do
But if you don't, that's alright too

What's new? Do you still work at the drug store?
Is that true? Still polishing the same floor
I miss my dear ol' dad
My, but I'm glad to see ya

Home again
But we won't be staying here, dad
The smoke makes Jim's eyes tear so bad
We can't have that
I guess I'll write you where we're at
Jimmy's father owns a bank
I guess he'll try his hand at that

So come and see us papa when you can
There'll always be a place for my old man
Just drop by when it's convenient to
Be sure and call before you do

So long, Dad
So long, Dad
Well, so long, Dad
So long, Dad
Ah, so long, Dad
So long, Dad
