Sing to Me

This song is by Grey DeLisle and appears on the album The Small Time (2000).

Daddy used to love to play the guitar
The fields would steal the music from his hands
At nightfall before mama called for supper
He'd sit right down beside his biggest fan

And he's sing to me
Cradle me on his knee
Running his bruised and blistered fingers
Through my hair
He'd sing to me
In that old familiar key
Each lonesome note
Clung to his throat
But I didn't care

Daddy's little girl became a woman
Couldn't wait to set myself apart
When the world was cold and cruel and cunning
I knew just how to ease my aching heart

When he'd sing to me
Holding me tenderly
Running his worn and weathered fingers
Through my hair
Yeah, he'd sing to me
In that old familiar key
Each lonesome note
Clung to his throat
But I didn't care
Each lonesome note
Clung to his throat
But I didn't care

Daddy's final days were dark and painful
But me and mama stayed closed to his side
Something filled my dreams that fateful morning
One last melody before he died

I heard him sing to me
Just the way it used to be
Running his frail and trembling fingers
Through my hair
When I heard him sing to me
In that old familiar key
I said okay
Go on your way
But I'll meet you there
Go on your way
Knowing one day
I'll meet you there
