My boss'll tell you that I've been to work all week on time
And I ain't had no liquor on my breath
It ain't no kind of secret, I've been known to take a drink
And it's made me do some things that I regret

Loretta said, ''This ain't no kind of way to raise a family''
And one night she called it quits and called a cab
She left clothes out on the clothes line and the dishes in the sink
So I guess she knows that she ain't coming back

But, I just wanna see my kids, I just wanna hold my girls
Heaven knows I ain't got much an' nothin' else in this whole world
I just wanna be around enough to know that they've been loved
I just wanna be the daddy, my daddy never was

Now lately she's been knowin' this ol' boy she met in church
And I can't say, she's wrong for wantin' more
I gave him the right to tell my wife that I can't come around
The night I knocked a hole in her front door

And Loretta took my keys and she made me wait outside
But she didn't call the law, she called a cab
And as I pulled away I saw somethin' in her eyes
So I reckon that she knows I ain't so bad

I just wanna see my kids, I just wanna hold my girls
Heaven knows I ain't got much an' nothin' else in this whole world
I just wanna be around enough to know that they've been loved
I just wanna be the daddy, my daddy never was

Oh, my boss'll tell you that I've been to work all week on time
And I ain't had no liquor on my breath
