I'll Sleep

Randy Houser

My daddy use to sing about a preacher man
who lost his wife she was his whole life
He kiss me then he tuck me in with his old guitar
Maaan that second verus I hung on every word I drift off and get lost in
between the melody then dream and he sing

Please come back to me we gona build this spring and start a family
Please just one more day so much to
say don't leave this way live's on in my fondest memorys
He sing and I'd sleep

Well I grew up like a weed thur my teenage years
OH daddy tried but I'd bearly say goodnite
I sure he thought my mind was
on girls and school but I was just way to cool to say I love you
But he didn't know when I close my eyes and turn out the lights
I'd hear

And after all those night and all these years
here we are and here he is taken his last breath and I'm man enough to cry
and hes to young to say goodbye and he is all that's left and I'm scarded to death

Please come back to me
right now I need you more than anything
Please just one more day so much to say
wish you could stay and he squeeze my hand
and kiss me on the check and said
you sing and I'll sleep
