[Verse 1:]
Gotta hold on easy as I let you go.
Gonna tell you how much I love you, though you think you already know.
I remember I thought you looked like an angel wrapped in pink so soft and warm.
You've had me wrapped around your finger since the day you were born.

[Chorus:]
You're beautiful baby from the outside in.
Chase your dreams but always know the road that'll lead you home again.
Go on, take on this whole world.
But to me you know you'll always be, my little girl.

[Verse 2:]
When you were in trouble that crooked little smile could melt my heart of stone.
Now look at you, I've turned around and you've almost grown.
Sometimes you're asleep I whisper "I Love You!" in the moonlight at your door.
As I walk away, I hear you say, "Daddy Love You More!".

[Chorus:]
You're beautiful baby from the outside in.
Chase your dreams but always know the road that'll lead you home again.
Go on, take on this whole world.
But to me you know you'll always be, my little girl.

[Verse 3:]
Someday, some boy will come and ask me for your hand.
But I won't say "yes" to him unless I know, he's the half
That makes you whole, he has a poet's soul, and the heart of a man's man.
I know he'll say that he's in love.
But between you and me. He won't be good enough!

[Chorus:]
You're beautiful baby from the outside in.
Chase your dreams but always know the road that'll lead you home again.
Go on, take on this whole world.
But to me you know you'll always be, my little girl.

    to me this song means that no matter how old his daughter gets she will always be considered is little girl and when she finds someone to marry he may think he loves her b=most but the father will always love her the most

    Well... I think it´s about a father singing to his daughter a kind of love song and singing about her... He knows that she´ll not stay small and at home for ever and that someday a man would want to ask for her hand... But what he is really saying is that she may not stay a little girl but she´ll stay his little girl and he will always love her with his whole heart...
    I just want to say: That it is my favourite song... Mostly it touches my heart so much that I´m near to crying ´cause I know that my father thought that way... Though he died... And I miss him so much... And this song and voise just reminds me of him...

    I love this song! When I first heard on the movie Flicka, I almost cried. It is truly a inspiring song to me. And the movie was awesome. I recommend anyone to get the movie and watch it. I love Tim McGraw, he's so hot! He's my favorite in country music. This song is my favorite song in country music.

    I know what you mean Suri. They played it at my father's funeral a few months ago. Whenever I hear, I break down.

    This was my father and my song. I find it hard to listen to now. My father passed away a Lil over 3 weeks ago at the age of 48 I am only 29. I don't know if I will ever b able to listen to it again. This was the song we danced to at my wedding. Just reading it makes me hurt. Never take ur father for granted n always b with him whenever you can! I always thought mine would b there for me n now he's not.
