About Me

About This Blog

Songs mean a lot to me. In this Blog I am sharing songs that have specific meaning to me. My tastes are varied but lean particularly to Country.

The lyrics of a song have meaning to the writer. I know a song can be popular for the tune and beat. It is when the words find a connection with the heart and find a common experience in the life of the listener the song becomes a classic.

Here you will learn more about what makes me tick than you probably want to know. I also hope it gives you some pause for reflection too on joys, sorrows, successes and struggles we all face.

I'll give you the song title, album I found it on, and the lyrics. You can decide whether you want to download it from your favorite music site.

That Silver Haired Daddy of Mine

Dad left this world for Heaven in January of this year. On this 1st Father's Day weekend since he passed into eternity I send out this song. Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson and Ray Price produced a great album a few years back and this one is from it. My player on the Blogspot website only plays a piece of this song but it is all I could find.
Love you Dad!

Song: That Silver Haired Daddy of Mine
Artist: Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Ray Price
Album: Last Of The Breed

In that vine covered shack in the mountains
Bravely fighting the battle of time
There's a dear one who 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 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
