Year: 2003 - Album: Love Luther
D A Bm G Back when I was a child before life removed all the innocense D A Bm G My father would lift me high and dance with my mother and me and then D Bm Em Bm Spin me around till I fell fell asleep then up the stairs he would carry me Em A And I knew for sure I was loved D A Bm G If I could get another chance, another walk, another dance with him Em Bm I'd play a song that would never ever end Em G D How I'd love love love to dance with my father again When I and my mother would dissagree To get my way I would run from her to him He'd make me laugh just to comfort me Then finally make me do just what my mama said Later that night when I was asleep He left a dollar under my sheet Never dreamed that he would be gone from me If I could steal one final glance, one final step, one final dance with him I'd play a song that would never ever end Cause I'd love love love to dance with my father again Sometimes I'd listen outside her door And I'd hear how my mother cried for him I prayed for her even more than me,I prayed for her even more than me I know I'm praying for much to much, But could you send back The only man she loved, I know you don't do it usually But dear lord she's dying, to dance with my father again Every night I fall asleep and this is all I ever dream.
