Daddy's Will
by Billy Dean



Daddy's will was stronger than the winds of a hurricane
Steady as a stone wall never did hear him complain
There were times when we had nothing but the hope in his eyes
His spirit went unbroken and his faith was never tried

Daddy's will held us together
Determined he would make a better life for us all
He sacrificed unselfishly so our dreams could be fulfilled
But then again Daddies will

Got a sister on the west coast and another who lives back east
I moved up to Nashville where I'm living out my dreams
But we all stay in touch these days talking on the line
'Bout how hard it is raising kids then we're reminded of those times
(When)

Daddy's will held us together
Determined he would make a better life for us all
He sacrificed unselfishly so our dreams could be fulfilled
But then again Daddies will

I won't forget the summer when Daddy passed away
Mama opened up the safe and read the will he made
It said our family fortune lies within our hearts
Then our eyes filled with tears but no one fell apart
(Cause)

Daddy's will held us together
Determined he would make a better life for us all
He sacrificed unselfishly so our dreams could be fulfilled
But then again Daddies will

Until the end you know Daddies will
