They Don't Make 'em Like My Daddy Anymore
Recorded by Loretta Lynn
Written by Jerry Chesnut

G
I wasn't much more than a baby I thought he was a bear
D7
The way my daddy carried me around

They said I learned to walk

While holding on to just one finger
G
On the hand of a man that's standing six foot three


Not old enough to understand the meaning of depression
D7
Just something people talk about a lot

My Daddy wasn't one to try to make no big impression
G
Just one heck of a man that worked for what he got

C
They don't make men like my daddy anymore
G
Guess they've thrown away the pattern through the years
C
In the great big land of freedom
G C
At a time when we really need 'em
G D7 G
They don't make 'em like my daddy any more


From the Johnson County court house

To the hills of West Virginia
D7
My daddy worked down in them dark cold mines

Education didn't count so much as what you had born in you
G
Like the will to live and a dream of better times


Daddy never took a hand out we ate pinto beans and bacon
D7
But he worked to keep the wolf back from the door

And it only proves one thing to me

When folks start bellyaching
G
They don't make 'em like my daddy any more

Repeat #3

D7 G
They don't make 'em like my daddy any more
