I've been writing songs for the last 30 years, but have never had the desire to become an artist at singing them. My desires are for someone to hear my songs and hopefully to one day hear one of them played on the radio.

Biography

I'm always singing in church somewhere. I write country as well as gospel tunes. Some of my music has been classified as love ballads and pop music.

Lyrics

Daddy's Little Girls

Written By: Jesse Tadlock

Verse:
Hands of steele, a heart of gold
The way we raise our kids
A seed was planted not long ago
Which blossomed throughout the years
A simple child with hair of gold
An angel with soft curls
Still one of God's own greatest gifts
Are Daddy's little girls

Chorus:
Nights and days I've cared for her
I see her grown up now
And all the times she trusted me
I did my part somehow
She's ready now to face life's fears
And take on the whole wide world
Still one of God's own greatest gifts
Are daddy's little girls

Verse:
From baby dolls to softball games
And everything between
I've watched my flower grow and bloom
Into a teenage queen
But now upon her wedding day
I'll share my love for her
Still one of God's own greatest gifts
Are daddy's little girls

(repeat chorus)

Tag:
A little child whose grown up now
A father's love for her
Still one of God's own greatest gifts
One of God's own greatest gifts
Still one of God's own greatest gifts
Are daddy's little girls

A Minute Of Your Time

Written By: Jesse Tadlock

Verse:
I saw her at my best friends house
A week ago today
She looked at me as I said "hello"
Then turned the other way
A heart torn smile and the way she moved
She knew what was on my mind
I'm just an old friend asking for
A minute of your time

Chorus:
A minutes all I'm asking for
To prove my love to you
Although its been three long years
I'm still in love with you
Its not a short love story
Where everything seems fine
I'm just an old friend asking for
A minute of your time

Verse:
Three years ago on a front porch swing
I stole her heart away
A chance for happiness I'd have
No promises I'd make
I never knew that the words she'd say
Someday would sound like mine
I'm just a friend who's asking for
A minute of your time

Chorus: (repeat)

Bridge:
Sometimes the one you push aside
Is just the one you'll need
Time has left an empty space
Its made a change in me
Once your true love comes along
Don't run away and hide
It may be you who's asking for
A minute of their time

Tag:
I'm just an old friend asking for
A minute of your time

My Soul Mate, My Best Friend

Written By: Jesse Tadlock

Verse:
Dancing round an old piano
Swinging to a Motown beat
Cross my heart I told her someday
She would be in love with me
We were still kids in high school
Knowing dreams would soon begin
Looking for that last companion
For a soul mate and best friend

Chorus:
You are my soul mate, my best friend
From beginning till the end
You are my life; you've made a perfect wife
Share with me so all the world can see
That true love never ends
You've won my heart
My soul mate, my best friend

Verse:
Twenty some odd years later
On a dance floor back in town
We could still sway to oldies
Or fall in line with country sound
Looking back through all the memories
Of the places we have been
Time will always hold the answer
To a soul mate and best friend

Chorus: (repeat)

Bridge:
Two people spending time together
Loving hands that cannot part
Have I ever failed to mention
That I've been here from the start

Chorus: (repeat)

Waiting There By The Phone

Written By: Jesse Tadlock

Verse:
Flying in from Atlanta
On a silver winged airplane
Close to home there's a smell so sweet
Things never seem to change
My hearts afire with a strong desire
For my woman waiting back home

Chorus:
Take me down to the earth my friend
Close my eyes and feel the flames begin
Soon I'll be back in her arms again
She'll be waiting there by the phone

Verse:
Seven years beside her
Beats the wonders of this world
Soft moonlight across a starlit sky
She's the wonder of it all
Her hearts desire is a flame of fire
When the sparks begin to glow

Chorus: (repeat)

Bridge:
And when the phone rings, she doesn't hesitate
She knows exactly who's on the line
How her heart breaks, when she knows I'm late
And the plane doesn't land on time
But when she hears all the things I say
The fire gets hot, she knows I'm on my way
Back in her arms where I'd like to stay
No more waiting there by the phone

Verse:
Late at night I'll leave those runway lights
For our nine room suburban home
Between the sheets soft tender feet
Lie there waiting to rub my own
Feelings my grow between those bedroom walls
Flames will begin to burn

Climb:
Spread your wings, slowly pulling me in
Hold me tight, our love will never end
Now I'm here in your arms again
No more waiting there by the phone

Tag:
Flying in from Atlanta, as she waits there by the phone

He Never Gave Up On Me

Written By: Jesse Tadlock

Chorus:
He never gave up on me
After all of these years
Through all of my trials
He always stood near
Now I'll go with you Lord
Wherever you lead
God must have saw a child in need
Cause he never gave up on me

Verse:
There's a place where the saints of God shall gather
There's still hope for all those lost an gone astray
Earthly treasures are not needed
There our souls will be set free
Praise the Father
Cause he never gave up on me

Chorus: (repeat)

Verse:
Pardon me, who's that knocking at my door
The one who's tugging at my heart could be the Lord
Saints are praying round the alter
I'm not the man I use to be
Praise the Father
Cause he never gave up on me

Chorus: (repeat)

Bridge:
A promise till the end of time
If you only believe
A friend I know who answers prayers
Cause he never gave up on me

Chorus: (repeat)
