Dolly Parton Little David's Harp Lyrics

Last updated: 04/05/2007 11:00:00 AM

LITTLE DAVID WAS OUR SON,
BORN ON CHRISTMAS DAY
BLIND AT BIRTH HE NEVER SAW
THE HARP HIS FINGERS PLAYED
THE HARP THAT CAME THE DAY
HE WAS BORN FROM WHERE WE
JUST DON'T KNOW A HARP LIKE NONE
YOU EVER SEEN FORTH SOLID GOLD

LITTLE DAVID LEARN TO PLAY IT
AT SUCH AN EARLY AGE NO ONE
HAS TO TEACH HIM HE JUST LEARN IT
RIGHT AWAY AND WE WOULD STARE AT THIS
TV AS HIS HANDS MOVE CROSS THE STRINGS
AND WHEN HE PLAY THAT SEEM TO BE
COULD HEAR THE ANGELS SING

HE WAS 4 THEN HE WAS 5 AND THAN HE 6 YEARS
OLD AND THE SONGS HE PLAYED ON HIS HARP THERE
WAS SOMETHING TO BE POSES

THERE WAS SOMETHING HEAVENLY IN THE WAY
THAT DAVID SMILE LITTLE DAVID WAS SO DIFFERENT
FROM THE AVERAGE CHILD AND THAN THERE WAS A STORM
ON CHRISTMAS MORNING AND THE SNOW BROUGHT SUCH A CHILL
LITTLE DAVID 7 NOW LACE QUIET AND STILL HIS HANDS
REACH OUT TO TOUCH HIS HARP GENTLY BE CRESTED THE
ANGEL'S CAME FOR HIM THAT NIGHT AND ON THE 7TH YEAR
HE RISK IT

LITTLE DAVID PLAYING NOW IN GOD ANGEL LAND
HE'S GONE HOME TO HEAVEN NOW THE WAY THAT IT
WAS PLANNED BUT ON HIS BIRTHDAY EVERY DAY WHICH
FALLS ON CHRISTMAS DAY ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE WE
HEAR THE HARP THAT LITTLE DAVID PLAYED
