MOMMY FOR A DAY
Recorded by Kitty Wells
Words and music by Harlan Howard and Buck Owens
[C] I go to see my [F] little girl each [C] Sunday afternoon
And [F] how I dread the [C] words I know she'll [G7] say
She'll [C] ask me when I'm [F] coming home, I'll [C] answer pretty soon
But I [F] know I'm just her [C] Mommy [G7] For A [C] Day.
She's [G7] much too young to realize why [F] mommy can't come [C] home
And [F] that her daddy [C] wanted things this [G7] way
We [C] kiss goodbye and [F] my heart breaks, to [C] walk away alone
To [F] have to be a [C] Mommy [G7] For A [C] Day.
I love her dad with all my heart, they lied and ruined our home
Oh! why did he believe the things they'd say
I pray in time he'll change his mind and take me back once more
And I'll not be a Mommy For A Day.
