daddy’s hands lyrics – patsy cline

(feat. loretta lynn)

i remember daddy’s hands folded silently in prayer
and reachin’ out to hold me, when i had a nightmare
you could read quite a story in the callous’ and lines
years of work and worry had left their mark behind

verse 2
i remember daddy’s hands how they held my mama tight
and patted my back for something done right
there are things that i’d forgotten that i loved about
the man
but i’ll always remember the love in daddy’s hands

daddy’s hands were soft and kind when i was cryin’
daddy’s hands were hard as steel when i’d done wrong
daddy’s hands weren’t always gentle but i’ve come to
there was always love in daddy’s hands.

verse 3
i remember daddy’s hands workin’ ’til they bled
sacrifised unselfishly just to keep us all fed
if i could do things over, i’d live my life again
and never take for granted the love in daddy’s hands

repeat chorus
