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 :-)

Shears does very little promotion, which has kept him secluded from the spotlight. What changed when Cyndi Lauper had a hit with his song? Not much, really.
