BY DAVID AND JJ HELLER

The Father-Daughter Dance
Was only two weeks away
They asked her if she was planning to go
The only thing she could say was

My daddy is not around
He’s locked in a jail on the outskirts of town
I wish we could dance on that Saturday night
But I’ll have to turn it down
’Cause my daddy is not around

The little girl wrote to the sheriff
Her request was unusual
Would you be willing to put on a dance
Since my father cannot come to school?

My daddy is not around
He’s locked in your jail on the outskirts of town
I wish we could dance on that Saturday night
Please don’t make me turn it down
’Cause my daddy is not around

The dance was held at the prison
Her dad wore a shirt and tie He told her
“You look like a princess to me
May I have this dance tonight?”

And their feet never touched the ground
They forgot where they were on the outskirts of town
They were dancing together on a Saturday night
He spun her around and around
And their feet never touched the ground

After the final song played
And the school bus drove away
Alone in the dark
His heart broken in two
Her daddy began to pray

Dear Jesus, my girl needs her dad around
Not locked in a jail on the outskirts of town
Then we could dance every Saturday night
I don’t want to let her down
Help me turn my life around
’Cause my girl needs her dad around
