Daddy I miss you so much
Daddy it's your day of honor every day
That's why we sure need you here,
I wish you weren't so far away
It's so long waiting, year after year.
'Cause Mommy and me, we miss you so
But I'm brave, never fear,
And when she's real sad, just as you said
I wipe away her tears.
Every day is not real good without you
But, we still set your place,
At the top of the dinner table
And pretend we see your face.
Then as the sun is setting way over there
I tuck Mommy in real tight,
And we say our prayers again
For God to keep you, while you fight.
We're real proud of you Daddy
Of your big heart and all,
When I'm big I'll serve God and country too
And in your footsteps fall.
