About The Song

Despite the song’s title, “Don’t Cry Daddy,” this duet will undoubtedly move anybody to tears. “Don’t Cry Daddy” was composed by Mac Davis and first released in 1969 by the legend himself, Elvis Presley.

The song reached number six on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1970, becoming one of Elvis Presley’s hit songs throughout his career. But it was when Elvis Presley‘s own daughter Lisa Marie Presley made a virtual duet of the song with his late father that this song truly stayed with many country listeners.

Lisa Marie recorded a music video of the song after her father’s death in 1997, singing it as a duet with her father’s original recordings. The audience is astonished to see this music video come across the screen showcasing photographs of Elvis and his baby girl in this wonderful computerized blend of their voices.

The two look to be singing next to one other as the images flash through the screen, almost as if the icon was right there singing live with his daughter. The audience was moved to tears since it somehow brought back a nostalgic feeling to everyone. It might be because they have also lost someone in their lives, or they just miss the legend themselves.

Lyric

🎵 Let’s sing along with the lyrics! 🎤
Today I stumbled from my bed
With thunder crashing in my head
My pillow still wet
From last night tears
And as I think of giving up
A voice inside my coffee-cup
Kept crying out
Ringing in my ears
Don’t cry daddy
Daddy, please don’t cry
Daddy, you’ve still got me and little Tommy
Together we’ll find a brand new mommy
Daddy, daddy, please laugh again
Daddy ride us on your back again
Oh, daddy, please don’t cry
Why are children always first
To feel the pain and hurt the worst
It’s true, but somehow
It just don’t seem right
‘Cause ev’ry time I cry I know
It hurts my little children so
I wonder will it be the same tonight
Don’t cry daddy
Daddy, please don’t cry
Daddy, you’ve still got me and little Tommy
Together we’ll find a brand new mommy
Daddy, daddy, please laugh again
Daddy ride us on your back again
Oh, daddy, please don’t cry
Oh, daddy, please don’t cry
