"Daddy Learned To Fly" as written by and Patterson Hood....
Daddy's gone away and no one can tell me why
Mama's been so sad
Since Daddy learned to fly
Everybody brought food
And everybody cried
Nothing's been too good
Since Daddy learned to fly

Fun we used to have
And the way we used to laugh
It's all gone away since they cut my world in half
Sometimes I think I see him smile from the sky
But he never stops to visit since Daddy learned to fly

Everyone tries so hard
To ease my troubled mind
Guess he's doing better than the ones he left behind
They tell me I'm not old enough to know the reasons why
The clouds reached down from heaven,
Daddy learned to fly
Learned to fly

They tell me that in time everything will be okay
Life goes back to normal
Like before you flew away
They tell me you can see me
So I'm trying not to cry
But sometimes I can't help it since Daddy learned to fly

Learned to fly
Learned to fly

    General CommentI can relate to this. Daddy has died. He is up there somewhere flying around and watching over us, but he is never coming back home.
