“Turquoise Blue (with a touch of Purple)”

“Turquoise Blue (with a touch of Purple)”
by B.C. Dodge & Matt Tellier

She closed her eyes and cried
“Daddy must it be this way?”

“Relax baby doll” he said
“rest your head…
Daddy’s always there for you.”

So paint a picture
paint a picture
a picture of turquoise blue

He said “Baby doll…
Daddy’s going to leave you soon”

She noticed a tear in his eye
“Daddy, why do you cry?”

“I’ve tried to teach you
right from wrong…
Please care for you sisters
and your mother while I am gone”

So paint a picture
paint a picture
a picture of turquoise blue

He squeezed her hand
and rested his head
There he lie in his bed

So now she must come paint the sad
picture of turquoise blue

So paint a picture
paint a picture
a picture of turquoise blue
