Daddy's Little Girl
by Kippi Brannon



Daddy, take me with you
I promise I'll be good
Daddy, it's next time
And Mama said I could

Sitting in the front seat
Riding downtown
For an ice cream cone
I'd wrap him around
My little fingers
Tighter than my baby curls

You can make a tear go
A long, long way when you're
Daddy's little girl
Walking down the isle
My eyes on Mr. Right

My bouquet was shaking
But Daddy held on tight
Taking those last steps
Daddy and me, from the child
To the woman I'd be

With a diamond on my finger
And my mama's string of pearls
He gave me away, 'cause I couldn't stay
Daddy's little girl

Well, he taught me my bible
From seven to thirteen
Taught me to drive
When I was a wild thing

I reached and he prayed
When I made some mistakes
That I wouldn't have made
If I'd've done it his way

Now he hugs me when he sees me
We talk about the past
He tries to give me money
And I try to give it back

He's a book of advice
More than I need
The look in his eyes
As he's saying to me

Let me help you while I can
While I'm still in this world
What will you do when your Daddy's gone
And you're Daddy's little girl

What'll I do when my daddy's gone
