BUTTERFLY KISSES    Bob Carlisle

 C                    Am       C            Am
There's two things I know for sure She was sent here from heaven 
            F             G         Dm                      G
And she's daddy's little girl As I drop to my knees by her bed at night
     Dm        Am                  G 
She talks to Jesus and I close my eyes
        F           Dm          G         Am        Dm           G
And I thank God for all of the joy in my life.  Oh, but most of all, for...
F           C            G       C
Butterfly Kisses after bedtime prayer
            F            C        G          C
Stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair
  F                C              Am    
"Walk beside the pony daddy, It's my first ride."
 F                        C          G
"I know the cake looks funny daddy, but I sure tried."
     F                       Dm      G                        Am
Oh, with all that I've done wrong I must have done something right
N.C.             F          C           G         G7        C
To deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses at night
 C         Am    C            Am
Sweet six-teen today She's looking like her momma
                     G   F              Dm               G
a little more every day One part woman, the other part girl
     Dm         Am                      G
To perfume and makeup from ribbons and curls
  F          Dm             G         Am      C    G
Trying her wings out in a great big world But I remember
F           C            G       C
Butterfly Kisses after bedtime prayer
            F            C        G          C
Stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair
F                    C                        Am
"You know how much I love you daddy but if you don't mind
      F             C               G
I'm only going to kiss you on the cheek this time."
N.C.          F          C           G         G7        C
To deserve a hug every morning and butterfly kisses at night

She'll change to her name today She'll make a promise
           F        G
and I'll give her away 

  Dm              G               Em
Standing in the bride room just staring at her
     Dm                  G                  Em
She asked me what I'm thinking and I said, "I'm not sure
   F                   Dm        C   Am
I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl

"Walk me down the aisle daddy it's just about time
  F                         C               G
Does my wedding gown look pretty daddy?" "Daddy don't cry."
      F                      Dm      G                        Am
Oh, with all that I've done wrong I must have done something right
N.C.             F           Dm            G        Am
To deserve her love every morning, And butterfly kisses

I couldn't ask God for more, man, this is what love is

I know I've gotta let her go but I'll always remember
       F           C           G              
Every hug in the morning and butterfly kisses
