Music Monday idea stolen from Holly's blog

link to Holly's Blog.



I've always loved this song. I'm not on any level a "Daddy's Girl", I don't always like my dad, but this song is one of many that always makes me think about him.

I remember Daddy´s hands, folded silently in prayer.
And reaching out to hold me, when I had a nightmare.
You could read quite a story, in the callouses and lines.
Years of work and worry had left their mark behind.
I remember Daddy´s hands, how they held my Mama tight,
And patted my back, for something done right.
There are things that I´ve forgotten, that I loved about the man,
But I´ll always remember the love in Daddy´s hands.

Daddy's hands were soft and kind when I was cryin´.
Daddy´s hands, were hard as steel when I´d done wrong.
Daddy´s hands, weren´t always gentle
But I´ve come to understand.
There was always love in Daddy´s hands.

I remember Daddy´s hands, working 'til they bled.
Sacrificed unselfishly, just to keep us all fed.
If I could do things over, I´d live my life again.
And never take for granted the love in Daddy´s hands.

Daddy's hands were soft and kind when I was cryin´.
Daddy´s hands, were hard as steel when I´d done wrong.
Daddy´s hands weren´t always gentle
But I´ve come to understand.
There was always love in Daddy´s hands.

Daddy's hands were soft and kind when I was cryin´.
Daddy´s hands, were hard as steel when I´d done wrong.
Daddy´s hands weren´t always gentle
But I´ve come to understand.
There was always love .....
In Daddy´s hands.

Can you tell I pretty much just listen to country?

Yay! Someone else doing Music Monday! Personally, not a fan of that song, but then again, I'm not much of a country fan to begin with. :)

LOL it was 10:50 at night, I was ready for bed, I didn't have time to look for something better! It's really not a big favorite of mine either!
