DADDY'S GIRL (Click Here to Here The Song) Rate G
Recorded by Red Sovine
Words and music by Glen Martin

I  recall the night ...
That you came into this  world
I couldn't believe the doctor
When he said, "It's a little girl."
I said, "Now Doc you must be wrong
You  see I want a boy."
 Then he laid you  in my arms
And  my heart sang with  joy. ...

CHORUS:

Daddy's Girl ... Daddy's Girl ...
I'm the center ... of Daddy's  world ...
I  know I'm Daddy's number one
For he loves me like I was his son
Daddy's Girl.

I recall the (time or day) day I took you to a baseball game
You brought along your baby doll and half its' baby things
We sat there a-playin' house, while the Dodgers played the Braves
And ev'ryone in the bleachers, looked at us as if to say.

CHORUS:

Daddy's Girl ... Daddy's Girl ...
I'm the center ... of Daddy's  world ...
I  know I'm Daddy's number one
For he loves me like I was his son
Daddy's Girl.

I  recall the (time or day) day I took you  on a fishin'  trip
You said, "Daddy won't that hook -  hurt the fishes'  lip?"
And you said if they don't get air
Those  things in the can will  die
So we turned the  worms all loose
And  chased some butter-flies.

CHORUS:

Daddy's Girl ... Daddy's Girl ...
I'm the center ... of Daddy's  world ...
I  know I'm Daddy's number one
For he loves me like I was his son
Daddy's Girl.

I recall the day that your young man came to call
Seems like only yesterday, (we) you swam and played football
But I know the time has come, that I must set you free
But no matter where you are, you know what you are to me.

CHORUS: (2X)

Daddy's Girl ... Daddy's Girl ...
I'm the center ... of Daddy's  world ...
I  know I'm Daddy's number one
For he loves me like I was his son
Daddy's Girl.
Daddy's Girl.
Daddy's Girl.
I'm the center ... of Daddy's  world ...
I  know I'm Daddy's number one
For he loves me like I was his son
