"I don't call him daddy" as written by and Reed Nielsen....
It was six in the morning when I made the county line
There's someone I got to talk to, can't get it off my mind.
He's just a kid, and he's in a pretty rough spot.
Two dimes to make a phone call, that's about all I got.

How's my boy today? I know its been three weeks.
But you know how far I've got to go these days to make ends meet.
How's your momma now, with her new live in friend?
Oh, how I hate the wounds that never seem mend.

[Chorus]
You said, I don't call him daddy, but he takes care of things.
When you pick me up on Friday, are you gonna bring me anything.
Oh, don't worry dad, you know, it don't matter what we do
'Cause I don't call him daddy, he can never be like you.

God bless the little hearts, they're the ones who really pay
When mom and dad can't get along and they go their separate ways
In a way I'm glad there's someone there to fil the empty space.
Tears of understanding stream down a dirty face.

[Chorus]
You said, I don't call him daddy, but he takes care of things
When you pick me up on Friday are you gonna bring me anything?
Oh, don't worry dad, you know, it don't matter what we do.
'Cause I don't call him daddy he can never be like you

Be like you
Be like you

He's quite a little man growing up as fast as he can.
And I don't get to see him half as much as I had planned
There's so much I need to tell him, so precious little time
A little rain on the window and a little wave goodbye.

You said, I don't call him daddy, but he takes care of things.
When you pick me up on Friday are you gonna bring me anything?
Oh, don't worry dad, you know, it don't matter what we do
'Cause I don't call him daddy, he can never be like you

He said, I don't call him daddy, but he takes care of things
When you pick me up on Friday are you gonna bring me anything?
Oh, don't worry dad, you know it don't matter what we do
'Cause I don't call him daddy, he can never be like you.
