Big Daddy Of Them All--John Mellencamp
written by J. Mellencamp
From the album "Big Daddy"

INTRO: G   (G  Cadd9 D Dsus2) 2x

            G                        Cadd9        G
You used to raise your voice so that it could be heard
             D                   Dsus2          D                 G
You used to shout out your order,     and your word was the final word
Em                        D
Do as I say, and not as I do
         C                  D
They've taken your picture off the wall
C                                    D  Dsus2 G
How does it feel to be the big daddy of them all

You used to chase your women right into your home
You used to tell them you loved 'em o'er the telephone
Now they all see through you, and you're sinking like a stone
No one knocks at your door, no one calls
How does it feel to be the big daddy of them all

BREAK

You're sad and disgusted, that's what you've grown up to be
Bet you had no idea this is what your dream would turn out to be
Oh and you live for yourself, it's hard on everyone
But you did your way man you did it all
How does it feel to be the big daddy of them all

Now you did your way man you did it all
How does it feel to be the big daddy of them all

Mellencamp was going through a very difficult time in his life. Divorce, mostly. He was quite the womanizer and the "Big Daddy of them All," so to speak. He lived for himself and that made it hard on everyone...his family especially. This is his emotional catharsis.
