"My Little Girl" as written by Tom Douglas and Tim Mcgraw....
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

    General CommentThe simplicity of it is what makes it such a beautiful song. I dedicated this song to my little sister. Ha now i understand why my dad is always worried about me. This is my favorite song by him at the moment. It is my song on my myspace =D.

    General CommentThis song gets me excited about being a father one day and really loving my kids. It also makes me want to be a good man for my future wife whoever it may be. "

    I wanna be that.

    General Comment"A four-year-old could write this."
    maybe so but its part of what makes it so sweet and innocent; this is the song that would be played at a wedding or anything significant in a daughters life.

    General CommentYay, it's up. Hope it's all right.

    This song is obviously about a father and daughter's love. Beautiful, I love it, especially the chorus. Tim Mcgraw is the best.

    General CommentThis is one of the few songs Tim has wrote, it's awesome. He has three little girls so it definitely comes from the heart for him.
