This was a country song from the 60s or 70s, maybe. Have no clue who performed it, but for a few years it was resurrected every Christmas. Started something like:

Please, Daddy, don't get drunk this Christmas,
I don't want to see my Mama cry ...

I've tried Cowpie, no luck. Any clues?

Thanks

Giac

Thanks so much. It was asked for recently and I only remembered a tad of it. I've been pickin' and singin' a bit for an elderly, very frail man who has made countless tapes for me over the years. He requests a song and if I don't have it handy, I try to find it by the next time I play for him. I've done more country songs in the last few weeks than in my previous many years, but I've picked up quite a few old songs along the way.

I get far more from these sessions than he does. It gives me quite a warm feeling to watch him keep time by tapping his foot under his covers. Sometimes he doesn't even open his eyes, but he taps that foot.

Thanks Yvonne, and Gene.

PLEASE DADDY, DON'T GET DRUNK THIS CHRISTMAS
Bill Danoff, Taffy Nivert

CHORUS: Please, Daddy, don't get drunk this Christmas
I don't want to see my mama cry.
Please, Daddy, don't get drunk this Christmas
I don't want to see my mama cry.

Just last year I was only seven.
Now I'm nearly eight as you can see.
You came home a quarter past eleven
And fell down underneath our Christmas tree. CHORUS

Mama smiled and looked outside the window.
She told me, "Son, you better go upstairs."
Then you laughed and hollered, "Merry Christmas,"
And I turned around and saw my mama's tears. CHORUS

[Recorded by John Denver and a few others.]
