Five Little Fingers
Bill Anderson
Album: Definitive Collection (2006)

A                            D                A     D
I came home last night to a dark and lonely cottage
             A                       E                 A
I took the wreath off the door and somehow I stumbled inside 
                     D                  A      D
I just can't I just can't I said live without her 
         A                  E                       A
Give me one reason to live now that my darling has died 
                      D                  A
And then five little fingers touched my hand 
E                         D             A
Five little fingers too young to understand 


And there was a softness in my little girl's touch 

That seemed to say daddy I need you so 

And in five little seconds her five little fingers 

Told me all that I wanted to know 

                         D                  A       D
I could tell her little eyes were full of questions
             A                    E                A
I tried to answer but all I could do was hold her tight 
               D                  A     D
Forgive me forgive me I said for crying 
                  A                    E                      A
But darling your daddy has got such a load on his shoulders tonight 
                       D               A
And then five little fingers soft and dear 
E                                    D             A
Touched me on the cheek and gently brushed away a tear

And I knew that in her own little way 

My baby was saying daddy I love you so

It only took five little seconds for her five little fingers 
To tell me all that I needed to know 

 E                        D            A
Five little fingers too young to understand
