    My Wish - Rascal Flatts

    With lyrics like these, it's almost impossible to choose another song:

     My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
    Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small,
    You never need to carry more than you can hold,
    And while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
    I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
    Yeah, this, is my wish.

    I Loved Her First - Heartland

    This song was a one-hit wonder for the group "Heartland" but they made an impressive impact with this perfect father/daughter dance song:

    Look at the two of you dancing that way
    Lost in the moment and each others face
    So much in love your alone in this place
    Like there's nobody else in the world
    I was enough for her not long ago
    I was her number one
    She told me so
    And she still means the world to me
    Just so you know
    So be careful when you hold my girl
    Time changes everything
    Life must go on
    And I'm not gonna stand in your way

    Butterfly Kisses - Bob Carlisle

    A great song from Bob Carlisle as he walks through his daughters life in the lyrics, there won't be a dry eye at the reception:

    Butterfly kisses, with her mama there
    Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair
    "Walk me down the aisle daddy, it's just
    About time"
    "Does my wedding gown look pretty Daddy?"
    "Daddy don't cry"
    Oh with all that I've done wrong,
    I must have done something right
    To deserve her love every morning,
    And butterfly kisses

    My Little Girl - Tim McGraw

    Daddy to three of his own little girls, Tim McGraw knows what the love between father and daughter is all about.

    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

    Isn't She Lovely - Stevie Wonder

    A timeless song which was a big hit for Stevie Wonder:

    Isn't she lovely
    Isn't she wonderful
    Isn't she precious
    Less than one minute old
    I never thought through love we'd be
    Making one as lovely as she
    But isn't she lovely made from love

    God Gave Me You - Blake Shelton

    The video starts with Miranda Lambert 36 hours before their wedding. It is a love song but it does have father/daughter feelings as well. Unfortunately the marriage didn't last but the song sure did:

    'Cause God gave me you for the ups and downs
    God gave me you for the days of doubt
    For when I think I've lost my way
    There are no words here left to say, it's true
    God gave me you, gave me you

    Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel)

    Written for his daughter, Alexa Ray, Billy Joel penned a straight from the heart father/daughter song.

    Goodnight my angel, now it's time to sleep
    And still so many things I want to say
    Remember all the songs you sang for me
    When we went sailing on an emerald bay
    And like a boat out on the ocean
    I'm rocking you to sleep
    The water's dark and deep, inside this ancient heart
    You'll always be a part of me

    There Goes My Life - Kenny Chesney

    This song starts out with a daddy-to-be who thinks he has made the mistake of his life, that "mistake" turns out to be the greatest thing that ever happened to him:

    Momma's waiting to tuck her in
    As she stumbles up those stairs
    She smiles back at him dragging that teddy bear
    Sleep tight, blue eyes and bouncing curls                 He smiles
    There goes my life
    There goes my future my everything
    I love you, daddy goodnight
    There goes my life

    I Hope You Dance - Lee Ann Womack

    Lee Ann Womack's big hit is a favorite father/daughter dance song:

    I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
    You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger
    May you never take one single breath for granted
    God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
    I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
    Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
    Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance
    And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

    Wind Beneath My Wings - Bette Midler

    Of course, who could ever leave this song off a list like this?
    So I was the one with all the glory,
    While you were the one with all the strength.
    A beautiful face without a name for so long.
    A beautiful smile to hide the pain.
    Did you ever know that you're my hero,
    And everything I would like to be?
    I can fly higher than an eagle,
    For you are the wind beneath my wings.
