Luke Bryan Debuts ‘Build Me a Daddy’ Live on ‘The Tonight Show’: Watch

Luke Bryan pulled on heartstrings with a performance of “Build Me a Daddy” just in time for Father’s Day weekend.

The country star offered a live take of the new song with a poignant, socially distanced performance for The Tonight Show Thursday night (June 18).

“A boy walks past a window of a glowing ‘open’ sign/ Full of wooden toys and trucks and painted trains/ Rings a bell up on the counter, hands a picture to the man/ Of a kid beside a soldier smilin’ away/ Said, ‘Sir, I’ve heard you can build anything’/ ‘Could you build me a daddy?’” Bryan asks in the first verse of the emotional ballad, from the perspective of a child who’s lost his father.

“Strong as Superman/ Make him ten feet tall with a southern drawl/ And a crooked smile if you can/ I sure miss him/ Maybe you could bring him back/ If I walked in with him, it’d sure make mama happy/ If you could build me a daddy,” he sings in the chorus.

“Build Me a Daddy” will be on Bryan’s new album Born Here Live Here Die Here, out Aug. 7.
