Daddy played piano
Played it very well
Music from those hands could
Catch you like a spell

He could make you love him
'Fore the tune was done
You have your daddy's hands
You are your daddy's son

Daddy never knew that
You were on your way
He had other ladies
And other tunes to play

When he up and left me
I just up and run
Only thing in my head
You were your daddy's son

Couldn't hear no music
Couldn't see no light
Mama, she was frightened
Crazy from the fright

Tears without no comfort
Screams without no sound
Only darkness and pain
The anger and pain

The blood and the pain
I buried my heart in the ground
In the ground
When I buried you in the ground

Daddy played piano
Bet he's playin' still
Mama can't forget him
Don't suppose I will

God wants no excuses
I have only one
You had your daddy's hands
Forgive me, you were your daddy's son
