BUTTERFLY KISSES BY BOB CARLISLE: LYRICS & CHORDS

VERSE 1:
 
             C                 F           G
There’s two things I know for sure
 
               C
She was sent here from heaven and she's daddy's little girl
 
        F               C                  G
As I drop to my knees by her bed at night
 
F                 C                                G
She talks to Jesus and I close my eyes
 
         F                     G        Am          F
And I thank God for all the joy in my life
 
            F
Oh but most of all…
 
                   
CHORUS:
 
       F           C                G           C
For butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer
 
            F               C               G            Am
Stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair
 
F                                                 C
“Walk beside the pony daddy it's my first ride”
 
 F                                                          C
“I know the cake looks funny daddy, but I sure tried”
 
        F                         G                                     Am           F
With all that I've done wrong I must have done somethin' right
 
                        F                           G                               C
To deserve her hug ev'ry mornin' and butterfly kisses at night
 
 
VERSE 2:
 
C            F         G
Sweet sixteen today
 
          C
She's looking like her mamma a little more ev'ry day
 
F                               C              G
One part woman the other part girl
 
      F                                        C                 G
To perfume and makeup from ribbons and curls
 
F               G                    Am          F
Trying her wings out in a great big world
 
            F
But I remember...
 
 
CHORUS 2:
 
F            C                G           C
Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer
 
            F               C              G            Am
Stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair
 
         F                                                           C
“You know how much i love you daddy, but if you don't mind”
 
       F                                         C
“I'm only gonna kiss you on the cheek this time”
 
         F                        G                                   Am           F
With all that I've done wrong I must have done somethin' right
 
                        F                           G                               C
To deserve her love ev'ry mornin' and butterfly kisses at night
 
 
BRIDGE:
 
                    G  F                                           C
Oh precious time like the wind the years go by
 
                        G F                                    G
Precious butterfly spread your wings and fly
 
 
VERSE 3:
 
C                          F       G
She'll change her name today
 
C
She'll make a promise and I'll give her away
 
F                       C                      G
Standing in the bride room just staring at her
 
        F                            C                   G
She asked me what I'm thinking and I said “I'm not sure
 
         F                 G               Am   F
I just feel like I'm loosing my baby girl”
 
                   F
She leaned over...and gave me
 
 
CHORUS 3:
 
F            C                      G           C
Butterfly kisses with her mamma there
 
             F              C              G            Am
Stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair
 
F                                                     C
“Walk me down the aisle daddy it's just about time”
 
                F                                                       C
“Does my wedding gown look pretty daddy?” “Daddy don't cry.”
 
        F                         G                                     Am           F
With all that I've done wrong I must have done somethin' right
 
                        F                           G                               
To deserve her love ev'ry mornin' and butterfly kisses
 
              F                                    G
Couldn't ask God for more, man, this is what love is
 
           F                                                            G
I know I gotta let her go but I'll always remember
 
F                                    G                                  C
Ev'ry hug in the mornin' and butterfly kisses…
