This song is by Rosanne Cash and appears on the compilation Tammy Wynette Remembered (1998).

Our little boy is four years old and quite a little man
So we spell out the words we don't want him to understand
Like T-O-Y or maybe S-U-R-P-R-I-S-E but the words were hiding form him now tears the heart right out of me
Our D-I-V-O-R-C-E becomes final today
Me and little J-O-E we'll be going away
I love you both and this will be pure H-E double LL for me
Oh I wish that we could stop this D-I-V-O-R-C-E

Watch him smile he thinks it's Christmas or his 5 birthday
And he thinks C-U-S-T-O-D-Y spells fun or play
I'll spell out all the hurting words and turn my head when I speak
'Cause I can't spell the way this hurt that's driping down my cheek
