  • (Dolly Parton/Dorothy Jo Hope)

    In this mental institution, lookin' out through these iron bars
    How could he put me in here, how could he go that far
    Yes I need help but not this kind, he didn't love me from the start
    But it's not my mind that's broken, it's my heart
    Oh Daddy come and get me and take me home with you
    I'm depending on you Daddy, there's nothing I can do
    And you said that I could come to you if I ever was in need
    But Daddy I can't come to you, you'll have to come to me

    When he said he loved another, I was crazy with jealousy
    That's 'cause I was crazy over him and I couldn't stand to set him free
    And I couldn't stand to lose him and I cried and cried for days
    And he said that I was crazy but he just put me in here to get me out of his way
    Daddy come and get me

    Oh Daddy come and get me and take me home with you
    I'm depending on you Daddy 'cause there's nothing else I can do
    And you said that I could come to you if I ever was in need
    But Daddy I can't come to you, you'll have to come to me

    Oh Daddy, come and get me
