The Child's Side Of Life Recorded by Johnny Horton Written by Joe Nixon and Tommy Thomas
C F A little boy stood crying in a courtroom G7 C Before a judge with a face so grim and cold F He brought tears to the eyes of all the jury G7 C As they listened to this story that he told
F I know my mom’s not a honky tonk angel G7 C I know she’s not bad like people say F I know my dad didn’t mean the words he uttered G7 C When he said she went a wild and wicked way
F I know my daddy loves me and he loves my mommy G7 C Cause he told us that the day we said goodbye F He wouldn’t tell us that he loved us and not mean it G7 C I know daddy wouldn’t tell his son a lie
F I couldn’t live without mommy and daddy G7 C Cause they mean so much to me judge don’t you see F There’d be no mom to kiss and tuck me in at bedtime G7 C There’d be no dad to hold and bounce me on his knee
F So won’t you ask my daddy if he’ll kiss my mommy G7 C Ask my mom if she’ll kiss my daddy too F Then I’ll know that all my prayers have been answered G7 C And the three of us can start our life anew
F A silence fell upon that crowed courtroom G7 C As each one thought these words that Jesus spake F And the little child shall lead them was that wisdom G7 C And the home began to build instead of break
