Daddy Doesn't Pray Anymore Lyrics

Daddy don't pray anymore
I guess he's finished talking to the lord
He used to fold his hands and bow his head down to the floor
But daddy don't pray anymoreI remember even when the times were bad
He thanked jesus for everything he had
For a good wife and three children
And the food upon our plates
Yeah, everything was right when he said, graceDaddy don't pray anymore
I guess he's finished talking to the lord
He used to fold his hands and bow his head down to the floor
But daddy doesn't pray anymoreThere was a time when we didn't get along
'Cause I thought I was right and he was wrong
Still when I laid down at night
I'd hear him get down on his knees
And say a little prayer for meDaddy don't pray anymore
I guess he's finished talking to the lord
He used to fold his hands and bow his head down to the floor
But daddy don't pray anymoreToday I followed daddy down to church
And listened to the preacher read god's word
We sang his favorite hymn but daddy didn't make a sound
This afternoon we'll lay him in the ground
Daddy don't pray anymore
I guess he's finally walking with the lord
He used to fold his hands and bow his head down to the floor
But daddy don't pray anymore
