Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast

Wayne Newton

The love between the two of us was dying
And it got so bad I knew I had to leave
But halfway down that highway when I turned around I saw
My little daughter running after me, cry in’

   Daddy, don’t you walk so fast
   Daddy, don’t you walk so fast
   Daddy, slow down some ‘cause you’re makin’ me run
   Daddy, don’t you walk so fast

Now it broke my heart to tell my little daughter
That her daddy had to run to catch a train
She had no way of knowin’ I was leavin’ home for good
I turned around and there she was again, as she said to me

Repeat Chorus

If only for the sake of my sweet daughter
I just had to turn back home right there and then
And try to start a new life with the mother of my child
I couldn’t bear to hear those words again, she cried and said

Repeat Chorus

Won’t you slow down some ‘cause you’re making me run
Daddy don’t you walk so fast
