Daddy Never Was The Cadillac Kind

In the style of

Confederate Railroad

Lyrics

we were poor
when i was a young'un
i don't remember
ever going hungry
daddy made sure
we didn't do without

i went to school
with some of
these fellas
they had money
and i was jealous
i didn't know then
what i know now

daddy'd say
you can't judge a book
by lookin' at the cover
it's what's inside
that really matters

daddy never was
the cadillac kind
he said some things
just glitter and shine

taught us that love
was the one thing
money couldn't buy
daddy never was
the cadillac kind

i left home
right outta
high school
got me a big car
thought i was
real cool
cruisin' around
the old neighborhood

i'd see daddy
after church
on sunday
say you'll have to go
ridin' with me someday
he just said no
i never understood

he asked me
how i bought it
i told him on credit
daddy just smiled
i'll never forget it

daddy never was
the cadillac kind
he said some things
just glitter and shine

taught us that love
was the one thing
money couldn't buy
daddy never was
the cadillac kind

it took a while
but now i'm grown
settled down with
kids of my own
the more i give them
the more they want

daddy left us
last november
i don't remember him
ever lookin' better
all laid out
in his sunday best

i'm sure instead of
all that attention
all he'd of wanted
was a few words
mentioned
a simple man
simply laid to rest

as they drove him away
in that big cadillac
with a tear in my eye
i had to laugh

'cause
daddy never was
the cadillac kind
he said some things
just glitter and shine

well just this once
i hope daddy
enjoyed the ride
'cause
daddy never was
the cadillac kind
no my daddy never was
the cadillac kind
