My dad and I are dancing to “Walk With You” by Edwin McCain. I cried like a baby the first time I heard it, and I still get emotional when I listen to it. I sent the link to the video to my mom and dad, and my mom told me that my dad got all choked up listening to it, too. I only heard it on the radio once, and I thank God that I did! Otherwise I would have totally missed out on this beautiful song.

Walk With You (Edwin McCain, Maia Sharp)

I’ll take this slow sweet walk with you You’ll let go of my hand to say “I do” He will discover just how blessed a life can be I know ‘cause all those years ago someone handed you to me

Every step that we take brings back the memories Winter snows and horse shows and dancing on the beach I can’t help thinking that I’m the lucky one You’re still my baby daughter and now I’ve gained a son

I’ll take this slow sweet walk with you You’ll let go of my hand to say “I do” He will discover just how blessed a life can be I know ‘cause all those years ago your mom handed you to me

Don’t miss a chance to put each other first Now that you’ve vowed for better or for worse Don’t let the beauty of this life pass you by In the times of trouble you’ll stand side by side

I’ll take this slow sweet walk with you You’ll let go of my hand to say ” I do” I picture a slow sweet walk yet to be When you’ll take my hand and say “Daddy come see” Then you’ll know what it felt like You won’t believe what it feels like Then you’ll know what it felt like when she handed you to me. She handed you to me

@HisPookie- Did you know that Loudon Wainwright’s version is a cover? The original version is by Peter Blegvad, it is a little faster and a little more non-country.

You said that you didnt want country but “My little girl” By Tim Mcgraw was on my top and I dont think its really “Country” like but its a great daddy daughter song!

  Another one is by Jessica simpson…YES I said it Jessica simpson (But its still good!) and its called ‘You dont have to let go”

Here are the lyrics!

I don’t need your strength anymore
cause you’ve made me strong
You may not see the woman in me
That you dreamed of
Holding me in your arms

All the days that you gave
All the moments you’ve saved me,
Praying for my life
Sacrificed, just to make me who I am on my own
You don’t have to let go

You don’t say it
But it’s in your eyes
All the fears of good-bye
But I can promise
You’ll always have a place, and a way to my heart

All the days that you gave
All the moments you’ve saved me,
Praying for my life
Sacrificed, just to make me who I am on my own
You don’t have to let go

I can live
Cause you lived for me
And I can love
Because you loved me.

All the days that you gave
All the moments you’ve saved me,
Praying for my life
Sacrificed, just to make me who I am on my own
You don’t have to let go
