You're my love you're my angel
You're the girl of my dreams
I'd like to thank you for waiting patiently
Daddy's home your daddy's home to stay

How I've waited for this moment
To be by your side
Your best friend wrote and told me
You had teardrops in your eyes
Daddy's home your daddy's home to stay

It wasn't on a sunday (monday and tuesday went by)
It wasn't on a tuesday afternoon (all I could do was cry)
But I made a promise that you treasured
I made it back home to you

How I've waited for this moment
To be by your side
Your best friend wrote and told me
You had teardrops in your eyes
Daddy's home your daddy's home to stay
Daddy's home to stay
I'm not a thousand miles away
Daddy's home to stay
I'm gonna be here come what may

    When i got my dad's metals and his flag. I felt i got my dad back. I lost him in a
    car wreck at eight years old. My whole
    family. Then i was abused by a minister.

    The song means whatever you want it to mean! It is not about any particular family or daddy. If an interpretation is required, the words imply a temporary absence and that daddy has the means to return when he needs to. A business trip is the obvious explanation - not war or prison or marital difficulties.

    I always think of how blessed i am that my daddy came home from the vietnam war and married my mom then had a family. He is my rock and my hero and i can not imagine my life without him.
