My little girl followed me around as a child now she is not around and I miss her.
My precious girl you're my whole world.
I love you alone please come back home.
Daddy's Lassie you sure are real classy.
You are sugar and joy and not a bad boy.
Years have passed living alone is a task.
I wish you were here laughing my dear.
If I seen you today the blues would stray.
If I don't see you again my love won't end.
Little shadow I know you won't let me go.
Gone from my life I lost mommy my wife
My little baby has grown into a pretty lady.
While you're young come back bring fun.
I will give you away, to a gentleman okay?
If that time comes I'll be here by your side.
Don't you worry come back now and hurry.
Won't be long before I don't have to worry.
