Don't Cry Daddy

by

Elvis Presley



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This was written By Mac Davis, who also wrote Elvis' hit "In The Ghetto." Elvis sings it from the perspective of a man who has lost his wife, and his sadness is making his kids sad also. But the song leaves a question: Was it death or divorce? The lyrics don't say. (thanks, Dennis - Ambridge, PA)

Hey Dennis:

Well seeing that Elvis and precilla didn't get divorced until 1973 I kinda doubt your perspective. I think more than that actual story, Presley like Country music and this is, basically, a country song. Elvis was also a "Sucker" for a really god ballad and this really IS a good one :-)

The Jayhawks' song "Big Star" has special meaning to Gary, who explains how longevity and inspiration have trumped adulation.

Dean's saga began with "Ariel," a song about falling in love with a Jewish girl from New Jersey.

Fishbone has always enjoyed much more acclaim than popularity. Angelo might know why.

The Brazilian rocker sees pictures in his riffs. When he came up with one of his gnarliest songs, there was a riot going on.
