Ferlin Husky – That Silver Haired Daddy Of Mine lyrics

(Gene Autry - Jimmy Long)
" © '31 Western Music, ASCAP "
In a vine covered shack in the mountains bravely fighting the battle of time
There's a dear one who's weathered life's sorrow 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
I know it's too late dear old daddy to repay for the heartaches and cares
My dear mother is waiting in heaven just to comfort and solace you there
If I could recall all the heartaches...
