​Daddy's Hands

This song is by Holly Dunn and appears on the album Holly Dunn (1986) and on the album Daddy's Hands (1991).

I remember daddy's hands folded silently in prayer
And reaching out to hold me when I had a nightmare
You could read quite a story in the caluses and lines
Years of work and worry had left their mark behind

I remember daddy's hands how they held my momma tight
And patted my back for something done right
There are things that I've 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 understand
There was always love in daddy's hands

I remember daddy's hands working till they bled
Sacrificed 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

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 understand
There was always love in daddy's hands
(Repeat)
