    I think it's about a man who by lack of spine or other obligations can't or won't be with his lover to father his child and the weight of remorse is heavy...the line "leave off God bless daddy if you please" is his way of saying I have failed you and our child and my heart is broken from my selfishness and disgrace.
    The writer of this song gives you just enough information so you can fill in the gaps with your own soap opera like details..
    I love this style of song writing and this one is really tops in my book.

    I think it is his mistresses and she knows they can't be together because he is married so she leaves. That's why he doesn't want her telling the baby about him.

    I think it is about a guy who impregnated his girl. For some reason, he was not ready to be a father and he could not love his future child. He decided not to go with his girl in New York City. He feels he is not good enough to be a husband and to be a father. His girl decided to live her life in New York city with their future child. I think you are somewhat correct.

    PEACE OUT
