Roy Acuff – That Silver Haired Daddy Of Mine lyrics

In a vine covered shack in the mountains bravely fighting the battle of time
Is 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 the 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
[ harmonica ]
I know it's too late dear old daddy to repay for the sorrows and cares
But dear mother is waiting in heaven just to comfort and solace you there

If I could recall all the heartaches...
