Daddy's Hands Lyrics

I remember daddys hands folded silently in prayer And reachin' out to hold me, when I had a nightmare
You could read quite a story in the callous' and lines
Years of work and worry had left their mark behind
I remember daddy's hands how they held my mama tight
And patted my back for something done right
There are things that I'd forgotten that I loved about the man
But I'll always remember the love in daddy's hands
CHORUS
Daddy's hands were soft and kind when I was cryin'
Daddy's hands were hard as steel when I'd done wrong
Daddy's hands weren't always gentle but I've come to understand
There was always love in daddy's hands.
I remember daddy's hands workin' 'til they bled
Sacrifised unselfishly just to keep us all fed
If I could do things over, I'd live my life again
And never take for granted the love in daddy's hands
Repeat CHORUS
Repeat CHORUS & TAG

I lost my father 10 years ago, however every time I hear this song my eyes water up .... I love this song so very much and I loved my dad unconditionally. He loved me back and what a great feeling that was. He was my step-father but he was just daddy to me!
