I was only six years old

Verse  
I was only six years old,
and to me you were a king,  
worshipped the ground you walked upon,
'cause you were everything,
Verse
Loved it when you used to hide,
beneath the autumn leaves,
Just like a scary monster,
in a disney make believe,  
Verse
then you'd jump right out on me,
and scare me half to death,
then chase me all around the barn,  
' till I ran out of breath,
Chorus
I was only six years old,
when you went away,
Yeah I was only six years old,
but it seems like yesterday,
Verse
I was only six years old,
when you started acting strange,
to young to know the reason why,  
but I knew that you had changed,
Verse  
how was I to know,
she was running 'round on you,
caught Mamma with the preacher,
and you beat him black and blue,
Verse  
next day you said you loved me,
and then kissed me on the cheek,
drove your Chevy, up the red dirt road,
and straight Into the creek,
Chorus
I was only six years old,
when you went away,
I was only six years old,
but it seems like yesterday,
Verse
wasted years getting wasted,
thought I was happy as a clam,
sleeping 'round and sleeping rough,
' cause I didn't give a damn,
Verse
but I sobered up and settled down,
now my wounds have almost healed,
as I watch my son chasing butterflies,
through my old daddies field,
Verse  
and I cherish every moment,
and every hair upon his head,
' cause by the time that I was six years old,
my daddy, he was dead,
Chorus  
I was only six years old,
when you went away,
I was only six years old,
but it seems like yesterday,
