My sweet Daddy,I never would have thought that
"IT'S ALL OVER BUT THE CRYIN'." This "CHEATING HEART,"
is constantly lying.Pusing me futher into a world where
"ITS ONLY MAKE BELIEVE." In my world I'm no longer
"SETTIN'FANCY FREE." "AIN'T THAT A SHAME," that in reality there
is no "YOU AND ME?" Daddy,please come back and
"TAKE ME TO YOUR WORLD." I can't accept this
"PICTURE OF ME WITHOUT YOU." These "VALLEY OF TEARS,"
has surely "BURNED LIKE A ROCKET," with all this sadness and
"THE BLUES." "TIL' A TEAR BECOMES A ROSE,"
"I'LL BE BETTER OFF (IN A PINE BOX,) than living on this
"HIGHWAY TO HELL!" You'll forever be my "BOARDWALK ANGEL,"
"TIL'I CAN MAKE IT ON MY OWN!" Daddy, "DON'T BE ANGRY,"
for I'm no longer "THE HAPPIEST GIRL IN THE WHOLE U.S.A."
I'm lost from reality.I now live deep within "HEARTBREAK U.S.A."
"TELL ME I WAS DREAMING." Tell me that there was no such
thing as a "YARD SALE." much less that I saw you for the last time
as I exit "THE GRAND TOUR!" Then came "THE RIDE," your last
one.Oh,Dad "THE TRACKS OF MY TEARS," are "STILL" falling today!
"ONLY YOU," can stop these "BLUE EYES CRYIN'IN THE RAIN."
"I'M BEGGING TO YOU," please come home and melt this
"COLD,COLD HEART." If perhaps God would "LET ME BE THERE,"
"I CAN HELP," because "I NEVER ONCE STOPPED LOVING YOU!"
I'm just "SOMEBODY SOMEWHERE," in a "SILENT NIGHT," wishing
that her Dad was here to "HELP ME MAKE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT."
With each passing day "I FALL TO PIECES." "JUST BETWEEN YOU AND ME."
I'm a "THOUSAND MILES(FROM NO WHERE.)" no one can touch me
I live in a world "BEHIND CLOSED DOORS!" The "SWEETEST GIFT," I've
ever known was how you came along to "SHARE YOUR LOVE WITH ME."
"YOU DECORATED MY LIFE," in "LITTLE WAYS." "SOMETIMES," I go
"CRAZY," and the pain in my heart is double the "T-R-O-U-B-L-E."
"YOU NEVER GAVE UP ON ME," because on the "FIGHTIN'SIDE OF ME,"
never have "I THREW AWAY THE ROSE." You know Dad,it's "STRANGE,"
just when I thought "I'M MOVING ON," I realized that "TIME STOOD STILL!"
"WHAT DO I DO WITH ME?" now that my "COUNTRY SUNSHINE,"
passed on down that "DIXIE ROAD." do I become a "STATUE OF A FOOL"
"THROUGHOUT ALL TIME?" Daddy "PLEASE DON'T GO!" you can't
"RELEASE ME," and leave with those "GUARDIAN ANGELS."
"DADDY COME AND GET ME," and take me home with you.
Don't leave me to this "CRYN' TIME."Remember the song
"LIFE TURNED HER THAT WAY?" You'll never believe that is me
"TODAY ALL OVER AGAIN." Sadly to say those "SWEET DREAMS,"
of you are turning into "OLD PICTURES," of a "FADED LOVE."
"WASTED DAYS,WASTED NIGHTS," there has been many
because "TODAY MY WORLD SLIPPED AWAY!"
"BREAK IT TO ME GENTLY." tell my heart that you will be
here to "WALK THROUGH THIS WORLD WITH ME," and
when lost in deep despair that you will my "SHINING STAR."
Although you are far away "I'LL SHARE MY WORLD WITH YOU,"
because in my heart "THATS THE WAY LOVE GOES!"
"THEY DON'T MAKE 'EM LIKE MY DADDY ANYMORE."
as the Lord was fashioning you He heard that "MIDNIGHT CRY,"
and made the one and "ONLY YOU!"
I knew that "THE DOORS IS ALWAYS OPEN," in your heart for me.
The pain in my heart "IT KEEPS RIGHT ON HURTIN'." I knew that
when Dad took that last breath of life "THERE HE GOES"
"THERE GOES MY EVERYTHING!" The day will come when I will
be filled with joy and laughter when "I'LL LEAVE THIS WORLD LOVING YOU!"
Dad for us our "YESTERDAYS GONE." You went away to
"WHERE GRASS WON'T GROW." "HE STOPPED LOVING HER TODAY,"
Daddy done that to me.Although it hurt, "I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU."
To prove my daughterly love to you."TAKE ME," to the
"GREEN,GREEN GRASS OF HOME," just "TWO DOORS DOWN." through
those "SWINGING DOORS," so I can be "JUST ONE MORE SOUL!" I've felt
the pain when the time came to "KISS AN ANGEL GOOD MORNING," while
"CRYING IN THE CHAPEL." If ever a heart was broken "I KNOW ONE!"
I know that you are watching over me from "THE WINDOW UP ABOVE."
Dad, "THANKS ALOT," from the ways you "LOVE ME TENDER," and all the
wonderful things that you have done."AM I LOSING YOU?"
Look out,look out Daddy there are "SEVEN SPANISH ANGELS,"
lifting you up toward Heaven.They're taking you home to
"THE PROMISED LAND." Please wait Daddy!I'm "ONLY THE LONELY."
As I lowered my head to "KISS AND SAY GOOD-BYE," for you these
"LONELY TEARDROPS," just kept on rolling down my cheeks!As I held you
I said, "DON'T CRY DADDY." for I will keep our "PRECIOUS MEMORIES,"
deep within my heart,'Til we meet again face to face and heart to heart,
in your new home in "BEULAH LAND!!!!"
