Lyrics

My Baby Girl
(c) 2013 Sol Knopf & Geri Smith


Verse 1
The sweetest thing a man could ever hold
Wrapped in pink only moments old
Wispy locks beneath her knitted hat
I'll never forget that

Verse 2
The first time she walked and let go of my hand
Was the first day I began to understand
Each baby step away from me
Was a giant leap toward the woman she would be

CHORUS
My Baby girl
I'll do my best to teach you all I know
Protect you while I give you the space to grow
know when to hold you close and when to let you go

Verse 3
Before I knew it she was driving my Chevrolet
Me and God grew close from all my prayin'
Then she got a ticket goin' too fast
Had tears in her eyes.. and I just couldn't get mad
She's just like her dad

CHORUS
My Baby girl
I'll do my best to teach you all I know
Protect you while I give you the space to grow
know when to hold you close and when to let you go

Bridge
Someday you'll be the most beautiful bride
And I'll struggle to walk you down the aisle
No longer a girl you'll be a woman by my side
But through that veil I'll see a child

SOLO

CHORUS
My Baby girl
I'll do my best to teach you all I know
Protect you while I give you the space to grow
and I'm gonna hold you close
'til I have to let you go
