"You Can Let Go Now" as written by and Kent Blazy Rory Feek....
Wind blowing on my face
Sidewalk flying beneath my bike
A five year old's first taste
Of what freedom's really like

He was running right beside me
His hand holding on the seat
I took a deep breath and hollered
As I headed for the street

You can let go now, daddy, you can let go
Oh, I think, I'm ready to do this on my own
It's still a little bit scary but I want you to know
I'll be okay now, daddy, you can let go

I was standing at the altar
Between the two loves of my life
To one, I've been a daughter
To one, I soon would be a wife

When the preacher asked
"Who gives this woman?"
Daddy's eyes filled up with tears
He kept holding tightly to my arm
'Til I whispered in his ear

You can let go now, daddy, you can let go
Oh, I think, I'm ready to do this on my own
It's still feels a little bit scary but I want you to know
I'll be okay now, daddy, you can let go

It was killing me to see the strongest man I ever knew
Wasting away to nothing in that hospital room
You know he's only hanging on for you

That's what the night nurse said
My voice and heart were breaking
As I crawled up in his bed and said

You can let go now, daddy, you can let go
Your little girl is ready to do this on my own
It's gonna be a little bit scary but I want you to know
I'll be okay now, daddy, you can let go, you can let go
