My daddy used to sing about a preacher man
Who lost his wife, she was his whole life
He kissed me then he took me in with his old guitar
Man that second verse, I hung on every word

I'd drift off and get lost in between
A melody and a dream and he'd sing

Please come back to me, we're gonna build this spring and start a family
Please just one more day, so much to say, don't leave this way
Lives on in my fondest memories, he'd sing and I'd sleep

Well, I grew up like a weed through my teenage years
Oh, daddy tried but I'd barely even say goodnight
I'm sure he thought my mind was on girls and school
But I was just way too cool to say I love you

But he didn't know that when I close my eyes
And turned out the lights that I'd hear

Please come back to me, we're gonna build this spring and start a family
Please just one more day, so much to say, don't leave this way
Lives on in my fondest memories, he'd sing and I'd sleep

After all those nights and all these years
Here we are and here he is taking his last breath
And I'm man enough to cry and he's way too young to say goodbye
And he's all but lived and man I'm scared 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 squeezed my hand and kissed me on the cheek
And said you sing and I'll sleep
