The song I chose for my dad and I is “I Loved Her First” by Heartland. Not sure exactly when that came out though.

My first daughter to marry also used “I Loved her First.” I listened to all the band’s songs, in that group, to narrow it down for her. I sobbed through the whole song. I played it for her and she did the same thing, so it was a winner. I tried to listen to it every day, to build up my endurance so I wouldn’t cry at the wedding. My son on law took a cellphone video, of the dance, so I have it on my phone. It gets me every time, especially since my husband had to start using a cane, a few months later. My second daughter is using Martina McBride’s “In my Daughter’s Eyes.” We heard her band do it at a preview, and we each went through 2 tissues. Since her father is more disabled now (incurable muscular disease), the first two verses are very appropriate:

In my daughter’s eyes I am a hero. I am strong and wise, and I know no fear. But the truth is plain to see, She was sent to rescue me. I see who I wanna be, In my daughter’s eyes.           In my daughter’s eyes, everyone is equal. Darkness turns to light, and the world is at peace. This miracle God gave to me, gives me strength when I am weak. I find reason to believe, In my daughter’s eyes.                           I’m crying again. Good luck!
