That Silver Haired Daddy of Mine - Jim Reeves (吉姆·裏夫斯)

In a vine covered shack in the mountains

Bravely fighting the battle of time

There's a dear one

Who's weathered life's sorrows

It's that silver haired daddy of mine

If I could recall all the heartaches

Dear old daddy

I've caused you to bear

If I could erase those lines from your face

And bring back the gold top your hair

If God would but grant me the power

Just to turn back the pages of time

I'd give all I own if I could but atone

To that silver haired daddy of mine

 

I know it's too late dear old daddy

To repay for the sorrows and cares

 

Tho' dear mother is waiting in Heaven

Just to comfort and solace you there

If I could recall all the heartaches

Dear old daddy

I've caused you to bear

If I could erase those lines from your face

And bring back the gold to your hair

If God would but grant me the power

Just to turn back the pages of time

I'd give all I own if I could but atone

To that silver haired daddy of mine
