  • Gotta hold on easy as I let you go
    Going to tell you how much I love you
    Though you think you already know
    I remember I thought you looked like an angel
    Wrapped in pink, so soft and warm
    You've had me wrapped around your finger
    Since the day you were born

    You're beautiful baby, from the outside in
    Chase your dreams but always know
    The road that will lead you home again
    Go on, take on this old world but to me
    You know you'll always be my little girl

    When you were in trouble that crooked little smile
    Could melt my heart of stone
    Now look at you
    I turned around and you've almost grown
    Sometimes when you're asleep
    I whisper I love you in the moonlight at your door
    As I walk away, I hear you say
    Daddy love you more

    You're beautiful baby, from the outside in
    Chase your dreams but always know
    The road that will lead you home again
    Go on, take on this old world but to me
    You know you'll always be my little girl

    Someday some boy will come and ask me for your hand
    But I won't say yes to him
    Unless I know he's the half that makes you whole
    He has a poet's soul and the heart of a man's man
    I know he'll say that he's in love
    But between you and me, he won't be good enough

    You're beautiful baby, from the outside in
    Chase your dreams but always know
    The road that will lead you home again
    Go on, take on this old world but to me
    You know you'll always be my little girl Writer/s: TIM MCGRAW, TOM DOUGLAS
