Bobby pleaded guilty to the charges that they read As they led him from the courtroom, a young voice turned his head A little boy, dressed in blue, was standing at the rail He said "I hope they kill you, I hope you go to hell" They put Bobby in a jail with forty other men They all knew what he had done, they were glad to take him in They'd all seen the headlines about Bobby and his wife How they loved each other, and how he took her life Day after day, he sat alone Night after night, they'd hear him sing his song (he'd sing) [Chorus] Baby, I'll take care of you, I'll never let you down No harm will ever come to you as long as I'm around I am not afraid of what people say or do The only thing I fear is being here...without you The little boy dressed up in blue grew up to be a man When he fell in love himself, he came to understand How it was that Bobby took the life they both adored Cause Bobby couldn't stand to see her suffer anymore He took out the papers from the trunk beneath his bed And all the years just disappeared as through his tears he read The stories of the accident that robbed his mama's mind And the man who held her in his arms and chose to cut the line And the one about the man who sits alone Year after year, singing his song (he'd sing) [Chorus] The young man drove his car up, and parked outside the gate They led him to a cold gray room, the guard told him to wait When the guard brought Bobby in, the young man finally knew He still missed his mama, but he'd missed his daddy too And when the guard left the two of them alone He took Bobby in his arms, and the young man sang the song Daddy, I'll take care of you, I'll never let you down No harm will ever come to you as long as I'm around You have taught me not to fear what people say or do The only thing I fear is being here...without you
