I [E] recall the night ...
That you [A] came into this [E] world
[B7] I couldn't believe the doctor
When he [A] said, "It's a little girl." [E]
I said, "Now Doc you must be wrong
You [A] see I want a [E] boy."
[A] Then he laid you [E] in my arms
And [B7] my heart sang with [E] joy. ...
[E] Daddy's Girl ... Daddy's Girl ...
I'm the [A] champ ... of Daddy's [E] world ...
I [B7] know I'm Daddy's number one
For he [A] loves me like I was his son [P]
[NC] (* * *)(Strum 3 times) Daddy's Girl. [E]
I recall the day I took you to a baseball game
You brought along your baby doll and half its' baby things
We sat there a-playin' house, while the Dodgers played the Braves
And ev'ryone in the bleachers, looked at us as if to say.
CHANGE TO F:
I [F] recall the day I took you [Bb] on a fishin' [F] trip
[C7] You said, "Daddy won't that hook - [Bb] hurt the fishes' [F] lip?"
And you said if they don't get air
Those [Bb] things in the can will [F] die
[Bb] So we turned the [F] worms all loose
And [C7] chased some butter-[F] flies.
[F] Daddy's Girl ... Daddy's Girl ...
I'm the [Bb] champ ... of Daddy's [F] world ...
I [C7] know I'm Daddy's number one
For he [Bb] loves me like I was his son [P]
[NC] (* * *)(Strum 3 times) Daddy's Girl. [F]
I recall the day that your young man came to call
Seems like only yesterday, you swam and played football
But I know the time has come, that I must set you free
But no matter where you are, you know what you are to me.
