The Only Daddy That'll Walk The Line

Lyrics: Ivy J Bryant
Music: Ivy J Bryant

A song the New Riders played in the late 1960s and early 70s.

Everybody knows
You've been steppin' on my toes
And I'm gettin' pretty tired of it

You keep a steppin' out of line
You're messin' with my mind
If you had any sense you'd quit

'Cause ever since you were a little bitty teeny girl
You said I was the only man in this whole world
Now you better do some thinkin' then you'll find
You got the only daddy that'll walk the line

I keep a workin' every day
All you want to is play
I'm tired of stayin' out all night

I'm comin' unglued
From your funny little moods
Now honey baby that ain't right


You keep a-packin' up my clothes
Nearly everybody knows
That you're still just a' puttin' me on

Every night I walk in
And I hear you start a-squawkin'
Beggin' me to come back home


You got the only daddy that'll walk the line
