@Chelle-Lee:  I know this is probably no use to you now as I see your wedding day has passed, but could the song you were thinking of for the father/daughter dance be “Tough Little Boys” by Gary Allen

the lyrics go :

Well I know one day, I’ll give you away
And I’m gonna stand there and smile
And when I get home, and I’m all alone
Well, I’ll sit in your room for a while

@heyveldc:  That would be the one!  LOL!  yeah, too late.  But no biggie.  I had also had every intention of using the time durring the dedicated dance to my late father to run to the bar to go get a drink.  Nay- thank you, dear Husband and father-in-law for going find my uncle for me to dance with.  Awwwww-  yes, I know.  endearing, it really is.  But I had really wanted that drink.  trust me- if you knew my family you’d know that perticular moment would have had more sentimental meaning being held in the bar anyway.
