Slow, Sweet Walk

I haven’t posted a blog in several weeks- we were preparing for our daughter’s marriage last Saturday and all of my efforts were focused on that. I’ll post some photos when they come back from the photographer, but today I just wanted to share the song that my daughter and I danced to at the wedding.

In my opinion, it’s the perfect father-daughter wedding song. It’s called, “Walk With You”, and it was sung by Edward McCain (here’s a link to a video of him performing it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0arzHmOby0).

Here are the words:

I’ll take this slow sweet walk with you.
You’ll let go of my hand to say, “I do”.
He will discover just how blessed a life can be.
I know ‘cause all those years ago
Someone handed you to me.
Every step that we take
Brings back the memories.
Winter snows and horse shows
Dancing on the beach.
I can’t help thinking that I’m the lucky one.
You’re still my baby daughter,
And now I’ve gained a son.

Chorus

I’ll take this slow sweet walk with you.
You’ll let go of my hand to say, “I do”.
He will discover just how blessed a life can be.
I know ’cause all those years ago
Your mom handed you to me.
Don’t miss a chance to put each other first
Now that you’ve vowed, “for better or for worse”.
Don’t let the beauty of this life pass you by.
In the times of trouble you’ll stand side by side.

Chorus

I’ll take this slow sweet walk with you.
You’ll let go of my hand to say, “I do”
I picture a slow sweet walk yet to be
When you’ll take my hand and say, “Daddy, come see”.
Then you’ll know what it felt like.
You won’t believe what it feels like.
Then you’ll know what it felt like
When she handed you to me.
She handed you to me.

I’m the happiest father in the world!
