Daddy If You Have To Go© 2016
by Grant Maloy Smith & Karen Teich Cluster

Daddy, don't go͟Said the grown-up child Why can͛t we sit together for a while? Your eyes are tired Lord, the things they͛ve seen I wish you͛d squeeze my hand and stay with me But Daddy, if you have to go Save me a place in Heaven Forever never ends I͛ll be with you again, I know Daddy, if you have to go Save me a place in Heaven I͛m not scared anymore Daddy, if you have to go We spent that day Talking ͚bout the past The time I took your truck and run her out of gas We laughed and cried and traded memories I saw my life through your eyes Smiling back at me But Daddy, if you have to go Save me a place in Heaven Forever never ends I͛ll be with you again, I know Daddy, if you have to go Save me a place in Heaven I͛m not scared anymore
Daddy, if you have to go We fell into silence As the shadows climbed the wall I watched your chest a-rising With each breath I watched it fall I thought about my mama and I knew you missed her, too Taken way too early But you͛ll be there with her soon So Daddy, if you have to go Save me a place in Heaven Forever never ends I͛ll be with you again, I know Daddy, if you have to go Save me a place in Heaven I͛m not scared anymore Daddy, if you have to go I͛m not scared anymore Daddy, go I ain͛t scared anymore Daddy, go
