Lyrics

Daddy always told me I'd be lucky in love

If I followed his advice

He said the heart is not an easy thing

To fix when it’s broken

So don’t give it away

‘Til you’re sure you got a fair price

 

Be strong enough to talk

When walkin’s all you want to do

Be strong enough to fight

Until your love comes shining through

 

That’s what my daddy said

 

Daddy always finds a silver lining in life

Even if he has to look all day

He says that into every life

A little hard rain must fall

But without it you don’t grow

So don’t you chase that rain away

 

If you’re open to the lessons

That you learn when you fail

Every door you close

Just starts to look like a new trail

 

That’s what my daddy said

 

Daddy always taught me to be honest

Daddy said in hard work there is pride

Through the years

As time has turned the pages

I always have relied

On the things my daddy said

 

Daddy always promised

I’d be happy in life

If I kept my sense of humor intact

He said the winds of change

Will blow you where you didn’t expect

But batten down and sail ahead

Don’t ever get caught looking back

 

If you’re high up on a building ledge

With your back against the wall

Take the boldest leap you can

I’ll always catch you when you fall

 

That’s what my daddy said

 

Daddy always taught me to be honest

Daddy said in hard work there is pride

Through the years

As time has turned the pages

I always have relied

On the thing my daddy said

 

I can’t say that I’ve ever been

Too lucky in love

I keep my sense of humor

Better than men

But I have grown up strong and tall

Here with my back against the wall

As the winds of change have blown me

Far from home and back again

 

I’ve got wisdom like a beacon

And it guides me to the land

If I have kids of my own

I swear I’ll tell them if I can

 

The things my daddy said
