A co-write with Lisa Gundling.
Because it is a song from the perspective of sisters, and it sounds funny when I sing the princess line...
I asked my sister-in-song to sing this for us.
Again, a Giant Thank You to Janice Merritt!! MY DADDY'S KNEE
the land was flat when my daddy bought it
an acre needing tending behind our new home
back property line was a forest of pine
miles of trees where we kids could roam
free dirt from a neighbor
that truck dumped a windfall
dad grabbed his wheelbarrow
and started to haul
for years he worked hard
to transform that yard
a realm for his princesses
my sister and i
apples of his eye
sharing the perfect throne
my daddy's knee
shovel by shovel he built our kingdom
three terraced levels with stepping stone stairs
we were all so fond of his little round pond
half hidden alcoves tucked everywhere
a big bamboo patch
three trees full of cherries
lopsided rock bench
you should have seen the fairies!
i can still see the look on his face
the gleam in his eye for that magical place
