Chord Req: Daughter of mine (John McDermott)

Can someone help me with the chords for this John McDermott song? I know it's a very simple waltz tempo and probably falls into the "3 chord" category but I can never "hear" the chords. I've copied the lyrics from another thread if that helps.


Lyrics by Madeline Thomson.

These are the thoughts of a father,
On the wedding day of his daughter,
As his mind wanders back to the first time he held her.
He looks at her now, the same pride in his eyes,
As onto the dance floor they glide.
It's the dance of the bride and her father.

Dance with me, daughter of mine,
On this, your wedding day.
Dance with me, daughter of mine,
You'll soon be going away.
I loved you since you first began.
Now you've found a new man,
But I love you so, and this you must know,
That my love won't falter,
So, dance with me, daughter,
Beautiful daughter of mine.

We walk down the aisle.
On my face there's a smile
But, deep in my heart there's a tear.
Our friends and relations are here in the church,
With smiles on their faces they stare
As we walk t'ward the man who has stolen your heart,
And to whom I must give you away,
But I wish you love and happiness, too,
On this your wedding day.


The dance has begun,
We twirl round the floor,
But, I know you're not my little girl anymore.
A lovely young woman has taken her place,
And there's happiness written all over her face,
But, always remember, although we must part,
You may leave my arms.... but never my heart.
