Lyrics

I don't remember mama She died when I was born We lived in a one room shanty But daddy tried to make it a home When I was only six years old Started singing in the streets And people would throw me pennies So I could help daddy make ends meet He'd say [CHORUS] Keep on singing Don't stop singing You're gonna be a star someday You're gonna make A lot of people happy When they come to hear you play He'd say keep on singing Keep the bells a ringing Spread your music from town to town There's not enough love In this old world So spread your songs around By the time I was ten years old I had a little rock and roll band And Daddy's eyes were growing dim But I didn't understand He would be so proud of me Each time he'd hear us play At night, he'd call me to his side And daddy'd always say, he'd say [repeat CHORUS] He didn't have much money But things never seemed so bad And I felt like The king of the world When I was with my dad

Then one rainy April night Daddy called me to his side He held me there with trembling hands Just before he died, he said [repeat CHORUS] I thought my heart was breaking Daddy was my dearest friend Now every time I sing a song I can hear him say again, he'd say [repeat CHORUS]
