Lyrics

Roadhouse Anels

Written By: Barbara Cecil

Roadhouse Angels Barbara Cecil

I'm on my way to work its another friday night
I'm all dressed up with my sequins on and I'm headed for the lights
on the other side of that river just beyond the railroad tracks
to a place they call the roadhouse where you can lay a cold one back
and when the sun goes down and its quitting time there's no place that I'd rather be
than singing to the roadhouse angels that are watching over me

chorus
I'm singing to the roadhouse angels, they've got their wings tucked up their sleeves
they've got cowboy hats on their halo's oh but their not fooling me
I guess it just goes to show you no matter what you believe
things arn't always as they look not always what you perceive

some might call them barflies and some might call them drunks
I can tell ya when their flying high or when they're down in the dumps
I don't pass no judgements I just smile at them and sing
cause I can see the light shining in their eyes I know its all a part of the game
And when a fight breaks out in the corner and the poolsticks start to swing
I can count on the roadhouse angels to be watching over me

chorus

Now there are angels in the heavens and there are angels on this earth
and the angels in the barroom yeah their keeping me safe at work
the angels all like music can do a mighty fine two step too
take a ride on the mechanical bull ain't nothing the those angels can't do
And when the bar shuts down and the lights come up and the whole place starts to leave
I can count on the roadhouse angels to be watching over me

Chorus

tag
I'm singing to the roadhouse angels, singing to the roadhouse angels, I'm singing to the road house ,singing to the roadhouse angels

Oh Daddy

Written By: Barbara Cecil

Oh Daddy

There's a little girl in the neighborhood who's only five or six years old
her mama and daddy sat her down and said theres something you must be told
her daddy had his suitcase packed and it was waiting by the door
and mama said we can't get along and daddy's not living here no more

Oh her daddy's heart was breaking and her mamas heart was too
she wasn't sure just what to say and didn't know just what she should do
and then her mama left the room so that her daddy could say goodbye
and he put his arms around her and the tears fell from his eyes

chorus
and she said
Daddy please don't worry I'll always be your little girl
and no one else will ever love you more than me in this whole wide world
You'll always be my here and I'll always look up to you
oh daddy please don't cry those tears cause I'll take care of you

There's a young girl on her wedding day and daddy's walking her down the isle
he can't beleive this day has come yesterday she was just a child
Oh all these years of loving her how could he ever let her go
then she took his hand in her hand and said oh daddy don't you know

Chorus
that daddy you shouldn't worry i'll always be your little girl
and no one else will ever love you more than me in this whole wide world
You'll always be my hero and I'll always look up to you
oh daddy please don't cry those tears I'll always be here for you

Bridge
They'll always be a special bond between daddys and their little girls
and the love so strong that it never leaves the heart of a little girl

There's an old man in the hospital soon it will be his time to go
his daughter sits beside his bed crying with her head down low
Oh all these years together she never thought they'd ever part
and now its time to let him go and with the last beat of his heart
he says

chorus
Darlin please don't worry you'll always be my little girl
and no one else has ever loved you more than me in this whole wide world
you've always been my hero and i've always looked up to you
oh darlin please don't cry those tears cause my love goes on with you

Oh darlin please don't cry
