  • The Daddy Daughter Dance

    So I entered “ The Daddy Daughter Dance” into the Nashville Songwriter’s Contest for lyrics only.
    (2600 entries)
    In order to win I needed 74 points. My final score was 62. All things considered this was a really cool experience and boost of excitement and enthusiasm to keep on writing.




    The Daddy Daughter Dance

    He waited thirty years for this day to come along
    The Daddy-Daughter Dance-they've picked the perfect song
    The dance floor to them selves-family and friends gather round
    Daddy-Daughter dancing-hearts beating the only sound


    Arms wrapped lovingly around each other's shoulders
    Daddy's so happy he's the only man to hold her
    The lights are turned down and he whispers in her ear
    "You're the love of my life-I love you precious dear"


    The tears start to fall as he kisses her on the cheek
    overwhelmed with emotion he finds it hard to speak
    Lost in their thoughts they circle round the floor
    while the mother of the bride lovingly adores


    Daddy and Daughter have lost track of time
    memories of yesterdays flooding through their minds
    Waiting in the wings the new man in her life
    Proud to say my daughter has now become his wife


    Take good care young man as I hand her off to you
    The life I shared with my daughter has always been so true
    One day you will be dancing with your daughter in this spot
    My words will have more meaning so please forget me not

      MH, I'm sure you'll have a lot to write about. The hardest part will be waiting till the actual event happens. Unless you want to let your imagination run wild. Thx for stopping by it is always a pleasure.

            No harm no foul Second. When we can make men weep we've done our job. And I like you have married off just one of three so I will be weeping with you, AGAIN!

              I don't know if I'll ever get the privilege with my girls, Bobby. Lovely moment, winsomely captured. Yes, I got a bit teary.

                Grant, we men who write our feelings down and are lucky in love with daughters are always expected to water the bouquets with our tears. Thanks for sharing a few of yours with me.
