Don't Cry Daddy by Elvis Presley

Album: The Essential Elvis PresleyReleased: 1969Charted:
  • 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 :-)
