Daddy's Hands
written and recorded by Holly Dunn

C G7
I remember daddy's hands folded silently in prayer
Am F C G7
And reaching out to hold me when I had a nightmare
C G7
You could read quite a story in the callous’ and lines
F C G7 C
Years of work and worry had left their mark behind

I remember daddy's hands how they held my mama tight
Am F C G7
And patted my back for something done right
C G7
There are things that I'd forgotten that I loved about the man
F C G7 C
But I'll always remember the love in daddy's hands

Daddy's hands were soft and kind when I was crying
Em Am Dm G7
Daddy's hands were hard as steel when I'd done wrong
C F D7
Daddy's hands weren't always gentle but I've come to understand
C G7 C
There was always love in daddy's hands

I remember daddy's hands working 'til they bled
Am F C G7
Sacrificed unselfishly just to keep us all fed
C G7
If I could do things over I'd live my life again
F C G7 C
And never take for granted the love in daddy's hands
