Simon And GarfunkelThat Silver Haired Daddy Of Mine

That silver-haired daddy of mine. In a vine-covered shack in the mountains, Bravely fighting the battle of time Is a dear one who's weathered my sorrows, Tis that silver-haired daddy of mine. If I could recall all the heartaches, Dear old Daddy, I've caused you to bear, If I could erase those lines from your face And bring back the gold to your hair. If God would but grant me the power Just to turn back the pages of time, I'd give all I own if I could but atone To that silver-haired daddy of mine. Oh, I know it's too late, dear old Daddy To repay all those sorrows and cares, Though dear Mother is waiting in heaven Just to comfort and solace you there. If I could recall all the heartaches, Dear old Daddy, I've caused you to bear, If I could erase those lines from your face And bring back the gold to your hair, If God would but grant me the power Just to turn back the pages of time, I'd give all I own if I could but atone To that silver-haired daddy of mine. I'd give all I own if I could but atone To that silver-haired daddy of mine. LYRICS AND MUSIC WERE WRITTEN IN 1931 BY GENE AUTRY AND JIMMY LONG.
