Holding Daddy’s Hand

Verse 1
Looking up to him, as every morning he’d walk me to school
Didn’t mind what kind of weather we went though
‘cause I felt like a princess with a loyal knight at my command
When walking right beside him, holding Daddy’s hand

 

Chorus
He was as strong as the lone oak standing tall for all to see
Always there for his children, my brothers and me
Lots of kisses for our mother as the love between them grew
And a friend who could be counted on by everyone he knew

 

Verse 2
On the Lord’s Day, in our crowded little church
Sittin’ close enough to smell his clean Sunday shirt
Just a little girl with my weekly, predictable plan
To put my head on his shoulder and hold Daddy’s hand

 

Bridge
He always had time to listen and to lend a helping hand
Yes my daddy was an extraordinary man

 

Chorus
Strong as the lone oak standing tall for all to see
Always there for his children, my brothers and me
Lots of kisses for our mother as the love between them grew
But our time together was shorter than we knew

 

Verse 3
Dreamed of him holding my hand, walking me down the aisle
But in a fifth floor room we gathered round to say our last goodbyes
He was not afraid as he faced what fate had planned
As he closed his eyes and breathed his last I was holding daddy’s hand

 

Chorus
Strong as the lone oak standing tall for all to see
Always there for my mother, my brothers and me
He’s gone but lives on in good memories we all share
And inside heaven’s gates where he waits he’s praying for us there

Yes someday we’ll see him again and I’ll hold my daddy’s hand
