17 Unusual Bride-Father Songs

Looking for an unusual option for your dance with your Dad?  Here is a list put together by Huffington Post that has some great suggestions for you!

Note: “Butterfly Kisses” did not make the list.

But what about the bride who wants something a little different for her dance with dad? Not to worry ― we’ve got you covered. Below, 17 less conventional picks from HuffPost readers (and a few of our own suggestions as well!) that you might not have considered before.

“For all the things my hands have held // The best by far is you”

“You are my sunshine, my only sunshine // You make me happy when skies are gray // You’ll never know dear, how much I love you // Please don’t take my sunshine away”

“I raise my glass // On a Saturday night // I thank the Lord above // On my Sunday drive // For Daddy’s hands // And Mama’s dreams // He gave me roots //
She gave me wings”

“My daddy taught me how to do my own thing // He said to let it out // Long as you find your groove // Be a dancin’ fool // Go ahead and find your groove // Be a dancin’ fool // Make sure you stand out in the crowd and show them all what you can do”

“I will walk with you // Even when the sun don’t shine // The rain it may come down // And fate may be unkind // If you get a scrape // I’ll brush away the tears // Come what may I will walk with you” 

“As I slipped out my bed // To your crib I crept // Touched your head gently // Felt my heart melt // Cause I know I loved you more than life itself”

“She’s as sweet as Tupelo honey // She’s an angel of the first degree // She’s as sweet as Tupelo honey // Just like honey from the bee”

“I am with you always // From the darkness of night until the morning // I am with you always // From life until death takes me”

“I’ll be the ocean so deep and wide // And catch all the tears whenever you cry // I’ll be the breeze after the storm is gone // To dry your eyes and love you all warm”

“I’m only one call away // I’ll be there to save the day // Superman got nothing on me // I’m only one call away”

“May you win and stay humble // Smile more than grumble // And know when you stumble // You’re never alone”

“When the night has come // And the land is dark // And the moon is the only light we’ll see // No I won’t be afraid // No I won’t be afraid // Just as long as you stand, stand by me” 

“Hope when you take that jump // You don’t feel the fall // Hope when the water rises // You built a wall // Hope when the crowd screams out // It’s screaming your name // Hope if everybody runs // You choose to stay”

“You’ve got a friend in me // You’ve got troubles, well I’ve got ’em too // There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you // We stick together and see it through //
Cause you’ve got a friend in me” 

“And if this old world starts getting you down // There’s room enough for two // Up on the roof // Up on the roof”

“Long may you run // Long may you run // Although these changes have come
// With your chrome heart shining in the sun // Long may you run”

“Yesterday I saw you standing there // Your head was down // Your eyes were red // No comb had touched your hair // I said get up // And let me see you smile  // We’ll take a walk together // Walk the road a while”
