Daddy's Hands
by Holly Dunn

I remember daddy's hands folded silently in prayer
And reachin' out to hold me, when I had a nightmare.
You could read quite a story in the callouses 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.

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
Sacrificed 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.
