That Silver-Haired Daddy of Mine (Simon & Garfunkel)

In a vine covered shack in the mountains Bravely fighting the battle of time Is a dear one who's weathered my sorrows 'Tis that silver haired daddy of mine If I could recall all the heartaches Dear old daddy, I've caused you to bear If I could erase those lines from your face And bring back the gold to your hair If God would but grant me the power Just to turn back the pages of time I'd give all I own if I could but atone To that silver haired daddy of mine Oh, I know it's too late, dear old daddy To repay all those sorrows and cares Though dear mother is waiting in heaven Just to comfort and solace you there If I could recall all the heartaches Dear old daddy, I've caused you to bear If I could erase those lines from your face And bring back the gold to your hair If God would but grant me the power Just to turn back the pages of time I'd give all I own if I could but atone To that silver haired daddy of mine I'd give all I own if I could but atone To that silver haired daddy of mine.
