That Silver Haired Daddy Of Mine Lyrics

Artist: Jim Reeves

In a vine-covered shack in the mountains
Bravely fighting the battle of Time
There's a dear one who's weathered life's sorrow
It's that silver haired Daddy of mine

If I could recall all the heartaches
Dear old Daddy, I've caused you to bear
If I could erase those lines from your face
And bring back the gold to your hair

If God would but grant me the power
Just to turn back the pages of Time
I'd give all I own if I could but atone
To that silver haired Daddy of mine.

I know it's too late, dear old Daddy
To repay for the heartaches and care
But dear Mother is waiting in Heaven
Just to comfort and solace you there

If I could recall all the heartaches
Dear old Daddy, I've caused you to bear
If I could erase those lines from your face
And bring back the gold to your hair

If God would but grant me the power
Just to turn back the pages of Time
I'd give all I own if I could but atone
To that silver haired Daddy of mine

FIRST HEARD THIS SONG ON A GENE AUTRY RECORD PURCHASED BY MY PARENTS FROM SEARS ROEBUCK IN THE 1930'S.
REMEMBERED SOME OF THE LYRICS, AND THE REST ALL CAME BACK TO ME AS I READ THEM HERE. WE PLAYED IT ON A CRANK-TYPE VICTROLA. THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES.

It takes a real artist to sing out a real good song and lyrics from the heart.

God bless!

My late father bought this seven single in 1967 and it is been one of my many Jim Reeves favourites ever since. The only velvet voice I know.
