Are You Coming Home Today? - Deana Carter

There's a tiny house with a little white fence at the end of Tucker Road
Where a baby girl and her mother lived, many years ago
Pretty as a Princess in thrifty nickel clothes
She sang this song and this is how it goes

Daddy, are you coming home to play with me today
After all the chores are done an' I've put my dolls away?
Mamma says I'm almost grown. Oh, how time slips away
Daddy, are you coming home today?

Well, her mother stood beside her, as she grew up to be
A free livin' writer, an' a home comin' queen
At night, she'd talk to Jesus before she'd go to sleep
She sang this song and prayed, her soul to keep:

Daddy, are you coming home to play with me today
After all the chores are done an' I've put my dolls away?
Mamma says I'm almost grown. Oh, how time slips away
Daddy, are you coming home today?

With a daughter of her own now beside her
She holds back the tears when she hears her baby say:

Daddy, are you coming home to play with me today
After all the chores are done an' I've put my dolls away?
Mamma says I'm almost grown. Oh, how time slips away
Daddy, are you coming home today?

Daddy, are you coming home today?

Daddy, are you coming home today?
