She Was Watching

He always called her daddy's little girl She was four years old Waiting by the door to run into his arms Each time that he came home And every night he tucked her in and read to her in bed When she'd fall asleep he'd close his eyes and gently bow his head [Chorus] But she was watching Her daddy praying And thought someday I wanna be like that She was watchin what he was saying And the way he bowed his head And though she can't recall the prayer She was watching Late one evening he was coming home from work He called to say he'd lost his job And after dinner they excused their baby girl She knew they had to talk But from inside her bedroom She could hear them down the hall They were dancing in the kitchen as momma sang his favorite Song [Chorus] She was watching As they were dancing And thought someday I wanna be like that She was watching Her momma singing As they were dancing hand in hand And though she can't recall the song She was watching Faith can't be taught It's just something that is caught along the way No faith is never taught It's just something that they catch from watching you along the way He always called her daddy's little girl But now she's twenty-three He walks her down the aisle to give away his world Oh but he can hardly speak And when he kisses her goodbye he tries to hold it in But as he turns away she pulls him close and whispers in his ear I was watching And I've been waiting And finally found someone just like you I was watching My whole life praying For God to see it through And as he kissed her one last time He said a prayer and closed his eyes And she was watching
