  • Lyrics:   Don’t You Know That Makes a Daddy Proud *(Cut and Run) © (Floyd Tolston/Byron Walker) COPYRIGHT 2005(ASCAP TITLE CODE 341663178) She walks into a barroom her jeans splitting at the seams She’s the kind of girl whose the object of every cowboys dream That halter top she’s wearing shows her tittys to the world Now don’t you know that makes a daddy proud. He skateboard through the mall in his baggy dirty pants The head phones on his ears make his tattooed body dance The pounding of the music drives the drugs straight to his brain Now don’t you know that makes a daddy proud. (Chorus) Yeah daddy works hard everyday and comes in late at night He buys himself a six pack and just stays out of sight From those who criticize him for the things that he allowed He’s wondering just what it takes to make a daddy proud. She’s dancer in a night club that caters just to men Every night she takes her clothes of time and time again The pole on the stage ain’t the only one she dances round Now don’t you know that makes a daddy proud He’s running from the police in his dad’s new pick up truck He’s had enough tequila that even he knows he’s *screwed up He skids across the parking lot right through the Wal Mart doors Now don’t you know that makes a daddy proud. (Chorus) Twelve pack He’s wondering what the hell it takes to make a daddy proud She’s blonde haired and blue eyed she’s been away at school Brings him home at Thanksgiving to met the family and share their food He’s big black and obnoxious, greets her dad with “What’s up dog?’ Now don’t you know that makes a daddy proud. He’s sitting in a bar pink umbrella drink in hand And he’s playing footsy with another man Their hands touch they giggle then they share a tender kiss Now don’t you know that makes a daddy proud (Chorus) Yeah daddy didn’t work today and the didn’t go home tonight He bought himself a case of beer and dropped plumb out of sight From those who would condemn him for the things his kids become Yeah daddy’s had enough so he just cut and run Yeah ole daddy finely had enough so he just cut and run.
