67: “I’m Her Daddy” by Bill Withers

Not the guy who dies in an episode of Star Trek.I first heard this song on a compilation by Tommy Guerrero called Another Late Night.

From Bill Withers‘ 1971 release, Just As I Am, “I’m Her Daddy” is a dark tune sung by a father questioning his lost love about the 6-year-old daughter he didn’t know he had.  Everyone knows what THAT feels like.  Awkward as a full-on shart. But he’s willing to sing through it.

6 years, Lucy, Lord have mercy, that’s a long time.

Enjoy.
