DADDY’S PRAYER
CLAY/FERRIS © 1999

WE HAD A WOOD STOVE IN THE KITCHEN
AN OUT HOUSE IN THE BACK
A HAND PUMP IN THE FRONT YARD
A TIN ROOF PAINTED BLACK
THIS WAS HOME FOR OUR BIG FAMILY WHILE US KIDS WERE GROWIN UP
DADDY SAID THAT WE WERE WEALTHY CAUSE WE ALWAYS HAD ENOUGH
 
CHORUS:
AT NIGHT WE’D HEAR HIM PRAY
MAKE ME A STRONGER MAN
I’M NOT ASKING FOR MYSELF
BUT HELP ME IF YOU CAN
AS YOUR CHILD AND A FATHER
I DO MY BEST TO SERVE
LORD HELP ME GIVE  MY CHILDREN
THE BLESSINGS THEY DESERVE
 

THERE WERE WOOLIES ON THE CLOTHESLINE
A PATCH QUILT ON THE BED
A BEAT UP TRUCK IN THE DRIVEWAY
AND FIREWOOD IN THE SHED
WHEN WE WENT TO CHURCH ON SUNDAY
MOMA’D SING THOSE HYMNS SO LOUD
DADDY’D SMILE AND JOIN IN WITH HER
HOW HE LOVED HER MADE US PROUD 

BRIDGE:
WE NEVER WENT WITHOUT DADDY SAW TO EVERY NEED
THE STRENGTH THAT HELD HIM UP HE FOUND DOWN ON HIS KNEES
I REMEMBER DADDY’S PRAYER
