Unwed Fathers Lyrics – Tammy Wynette

In an Appalachian greyhound station
She sat there waitin’ in a family way
Goodbye brother tell mom I love her
Tell all the others I’ll write someday

From a teenage lover to unwed mother
Kept under cover like some bad dream
But unwed fathers can’t be bothered
They run like water to a mountain stream

In a cold and grey town a nurse says lay down
This ain’t no playground and this ain’t home
Someone’s children havin’ children
In a cold grey building all alone

From a teenage lover to unwed mother
Kept under cover like some bad dream
But unwed fathers can’t be bothered
They run like water to a mountain stream

On a somewhere else bound nighttime greyhound
She bows her head down and lullaby
Scared and crazy she holds her baby
Says I think maybe you got your daddy’s eyes

From a teenage lover to unwed mother
Kept under cover like some bad dream
But unwed fathers can’t be bothered
They run like water to a mountain stream
They run like water to a mountain stream
