Ellen Muriel Deason (August 30, 1919 – July 16, 2012), known professionally as Kitty Wells, was an American country music singer. Her 1952 hit recording, "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels", made her the first female country singer to top the U.S. country charts, and turned her into the first female country star. Her Top 10 hits continued until the mid-1960s, inspiring a long list of female country singers who came to prominence in the 1960s. more »

How far is heaven, let's go to-night
I want my daddy to hold me tight.

A little girl was waiting for her daddy one day
It was time to meet him, when she heard her mommy say
Come to mama, darling, please do not cry
Daddy's gone to heaven, way up in the sky.

How far Is Heaven, when can I go
To see my daddy, he's there, I know
How far Is Heaven, let's go tonight
I want my daddy to hold me tight.

He was called so suddenly and could not say goodbye
I know that he's in heaven, we'll meet him by and by
The little girl trembled, her tears she could not hide
She looked up towards heaven and then she replied.

How far Is Heaven, when can I go
To see my daddy, he's there, I know
How far Is Heaven, let's go tonight
I want my daddy to hold me tight.
