Terry K father songs (58* d) Lyr Add: THAT SILVER-HAIRED DADDY OF MINE (G Autry 05 Jun 06


"That Silver Haired Daddy of Mine" - didn't Simon & Garfunk do it? Very sickly - could be just what you're looking for!

THAT SILVER-HAIRED DADDY OF MINE - Gene Autry

In a vine covered shack in the mountains,   (D)
Bravely fighting the battle of time,   (A7)
Is a dear one who's weathered life's sorrows,   (D, G)
'Tis that silver-haired daddy of mine.   (D, A7, D)

REFRAIN: If I could recall all the heartache,   (D)
Dear old Daddy I've caused you to bear,   (G, D)
If I could erase the lines from your face,   (A7, D)
And bring back the gold to your hair,   (E, A)
If God would but grant me the power,   (D)
Just to turn back the pages of time,   (A7)
I'd give all I own if I could but atone,   (D, D7, G)
To that silver-haired daddy of mine.   (D, A7, D)

I know it's too late dear old daddy,
To repay all the sorrow and care,
But dear Mother is waiting in heaven,
Just to comfort and solace you there.

(Refrain)
