Daddy And The Wine (Lloyd Snow) video

A boy walked in the candy store
in faded overalls,
Threw a nickel on the counter,
said I think I'll spend it all;
I carried it three months or more,
you can tell it by the shine,
I need a sack of candy
like my daddy needs his wine.

Daddy and the wine go back
three years out of my eight,
In the old days we were happy,
dad worked hours long and late;
And then one day mom disappeared,
and so did daddy's mind,
And now it's me and daddy,
mostly daddy and the wine.

The boy picked up his sack and
then he walked out in the street,
We put a roll of green in
amongst the jelly beans;
The clerk was broke, and so was I,
we gave him our last dime,
A stranger stole his mommy,
now his daddy's on the wine.

Daddy and the wine go back
three years out of my eight,
In the old days we were happy,
dad worked hours long and late;
And then one day mom disappeared,
and so did daddy's mind,
And now it's me and daddy,
mostly daddy and the wine.
And now it's me and daddy,
mostly daddy and the wine.
