They Don't Make 'Em Like My Daddy - The Hit Crew

I wasn't much more than a baby

 

I thought he was a bear

 

The way my daddy carried me around

 

They said I learned to walk

While holdin' on to just one finger

 

On the hand of a man

That stands at six-foot-three

 

Not old enough to understand

The meaning of depression

Just something people

Talked about a lot

 

My daddy wasn't one

That tried to make no big impressions

Just one heck of a man

That worked for what he got

 

They don't make men like

My daddy anymore

 

Guess they've thrown away

The pattern through the years

 

In a great big land of freedom

 

At a time we really need 'em

They don't make 'em like

My daddy anymore

 

From the Johnson County coal camps

To the hills of West Virginia

My daddy hauled the timber for the mines

 

Education didn't count so much as

What you had born in you

Like the will to live and a dream

Of better times

 

Daddy never took a handout

We ate pinto beans a bacon

But he worked to keep the wolf

Back from the door

 

And it only proves one thing to me

When folks start belly achin'

They don't make 'em like

My daddy anymore

They don't make 'em like

My daddy anymore

 

Guess they've thrown away the pattern

Through the years

 

In a great big land of freedom

At a time we really need 'em

They don't make 'em like

My daddy anymore

 

They don't make 'em like

My daddy anymore
