Tabbed byJessica
TuningStandard
CapoNone
INTRO: C  -  C (second string, walk down 3-2-0)


Am                                 F
She stepped off of the boat to see flowers in his hands
C                              G
The man she would marry was as hard as the mountains
Am                        F
She had his children in a one room log cabin
C                                 G 
Soon I'd be another star in this family's constellation
                             Am 
In the land of the midnight sun
               G  
Searching for gold

  C                      
I am my father's daughter
    G
He has his mother's eyes
Am                         F
I am the product of their sacrifice
  C                           G
I am the accumulation of the dreams of generations
          Am                      F-C-G
And their stories live in me like holy water
                  C
I am my father's daughter

Am                       F
My father raised me in a one room log cabin
C                       G 
And he sang for me the songs his mother sang for him
Am                                     F
And honkey-tonks, and empty bars, just me and him
                    C
And that old guitar
                      G
He passed on a legacy wrapped up in a melody
             Am
That I carry on
              G
Searching for gold

  C
I am my father's daughter
   G
I have my Gramma's eyes
  Am                       F  
I am the product of their sacrifice
  C                          G
I am the accumulation of the dreams of generations
          Am                      F-C- G
And their stories live in me like holy water
                 C 
I am my father's daughter

Am               F
And every time I step on stage
C
And the music finds me
Am                     G              
I don't need gold to remind me

That I am my father's daughter
I have my Grandma's eyes
I am the product of such sacrifice
I am the accumulation of the dreams of generations
And their stories live in me like holy water
I am my father's daughter
I am my father's daughter
Oh, I am my father's daughter
