Daddy, Don't You Walk So Fast Wayne Newton (#4 in 1972)

The love between the two of us was dyin'
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, crying

    Daddy, don't you walk so fast, daddy don't you walk so fast
    Daddy, slow down some, 'cause you're making me run
    Daddy, don't you walk so fast.

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.

It broke my heart to tell my little daughter
That her daddy had to run to catch a train
She had no way of knowing that I was leaving home for good
