MARK WEIGLE FRANK WAS NOT MY DADDY'S NAME LYRICS
After Mama died, I went through her papers
And found a letter dated 1968
I figured it was probably from my father
Cuz he was on the road a lot back in those days
The letter started out with "how I miss you"
And I wish Mama was still here to explain
Why it was signed "Frank" beneath "I Love You"
When Frank, was not my daddy's name
In the letter, Frank begged my Mom to join him
He said a man should be with his son
That he was sorry now he'd left her hangin'
But he'd been so afraid and much too young
And when he thought of how he'd ever asked her
To give me up, he felt ashamed
And he was ready now to be my father
But Frank was not my Daddy's name
It wasn't Frank who got me up at 5 a.m. to fish
Or taught me how to ride a 2-wheel bike
He's not the one who held me through the night when I was sick
Or made me follow rules I didn't like
Yes I know there's a man out there
Who gave me his flesh and his blood
And I suppose I've got his eyes and hair
But I never got nothing of his love
So the courthouse might have a piece of paper
With a little fact of life that I can't change
But here in my heart I know better
Frank was not my Daddy's name
