Father Knows Best Recorded by Ricky Skaggs Written by Mike Curtis and Lenny LeBlanc
C F C Daddy told me not to ride my bike across that rocky creek G7 You know it's swift in places and son it's pretty deep F C Am But hardheaded full of pride I went on anyway C G7 C And if daddy hadn't been watchin' me I wouldn't be here today
F C Father knows best father knows best G7 C C7 If he hadn't been looking out for me I'd be in such a mess F C Am I swore from then on I would do just what he said F G7 C Cause father knows best father knows best
F C I remember back in high school about sixteen years old G7 My friends said let's go drinking but daddy told me not to go F C Am Now I'm so glad that I stayed at home cause it turned out he was right C When the papers came the next morning G7 C Well it was there in black and white
Am C F C Today a man knocked on my door and said your daddy died F D7 G7 I tried holdin' back the tears but I just stood there and cried F C Am Now Lord you know I loved him why did he have to go away C G7 C Then lookin' up to heaven I heard somebody say
F C Father knows best father knows best G7 C C7 I’m always looking out for you so your heart can be at rest F C Am I’ll see you through the bad time just remember what I’ve said F G7 C Cause father knows best father knows best
F G7 C Your father knows best son your father knows best
