The Only Daddy That'll Walk The Line

Lyrics: Ivy J Bryant
Music: Ivy J Bryant

A song the New Riders played in the early 1970s.

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

Chorus
'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

[chorus]

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

[chorus]

You got the only daddy that'll walk the line
