TEMPO: Country Ballad
[C] [1.] [C/B] [am] [am/G] [F] [G]
[C]The moment was - [F]custom-made to [C]order:
I was [dm]ridin' with my [C/E]daughter on our [F]way back from [G]Monroe.
An' like children do, - she started playin' twenty questions,
But I never could a guessed one - would touch me to my soul.
She said: "Daddy, [F]when we get to [G]Heaven, - can I [C]taste the Milky [am]Way?[am/G]
"Are we [F]goin' there to [G]visit, - or are we [C]goin' there to [am]stay?[am/G]
"Am I [F]gonna see my [G]Grandpa? Can I [C]have a pair of [am]wings? (Break)
"An' do you [dm]think that God could [C/E]use another [F]Angel,
"To [G]help pour out the [C]rain?"[am]
[BRIDGE: LIKE INTRO]
Well, I won't lie: - I pulled that car right over,
An' I sat there on the shoulder tryin' to dry my misty eyes.
An' I whispered: "Lord, - I wanna thank you for my children.
"'Cause your innocence that fills them often takes me by surprise."
Like: "Daddy, when we get to Heaven, - can I taste the Milky Way?
"Are we goin' there to visit, - or are we goin' there to stay?
"Am I gonna see my Grandpa? Can I have a pair of wings?
"An' do you think that God could use another Angel,
"To help pour out the rain?"
Well, I [F]thought about it [G]later on,
An' a [C]smile came [C/B]to my [am]face.
An' when I [dm]tucked her in to [C/E]bed,
I got down - [F]on my knees an' [G]prayed.
Lord, when I get to Heaven, - can I taste the Milky Way?
"I don't wanna come to visit - 'cause I'm comin' home to stay.
"An' I can't wait to see my family and meet Jesus face to face.
"An' do you think, Lord, you could uses one more Angel,
"To help pour out the rain?" Mmmm, can I help pour out the rain?
