Butterfly for Bucky
Buck was born on a beautiful morning And I felt very proud Lets just say its not every day That you see me cry out loud Hair like sunshine, a smile as warm And the prettiest eyes you'll find One day last spring my lady and I Found out those eyes were blind [Chorus] Have a butterfly for me daddy They sound so pretty to me Tell me about the butterfly And all the things you see Well over there Buck lies a beautiful meadow With the colors of gold and tan With the smell of hay and the sound of crickets Here Buck, take my hand And I wish you could see that big oak tree With its limbs reaching up to the sky And a bed of flowers growing at its feet And a big yellow butterfly Save a butterfly for me daddy Before they disappear Save a butterfly for me daddy And on his cheek was a tiny tear So we packed up our bags our hopes and our dreams And we all went to town that day I sneaked off to the hospital chapel I got down on my knees and I prayed Save a butterfly for my boy lord I sure need nothing for me Except an angel of joy to touch him The way that he's touched me Now there are things in this universe That we just don't understand And through an open window came a butterfly To land on Buck's small hand The doctor's face was strangely white As if it just couldn't be But the light was in my boys face Daddy he said, I can see Save a butterfly for us Bucky We're all so blind it seems For we've not seen the magic In the power of a little boy's dreams
