During a sold out show at East Hampton's Guild Hall, Jimmy Buffett gave the audience a performance to remember when he began singing a heartfelt tribute to his daughter, Sarah Delaney Buffett. 

Jimmy prefaced his performance with a few touching words, saying,

"I do love my children, and I love being able to write songs about my children, they are a neat subject. And again, as I said, they teach us so many things. This is Delaney's song, this is called 'Delaney Talks To Statues'".

Way to tug at our heartstrings Jimmy, that was beautiful!  

The legendary Jimmy then began singing the song he wrote for his daughter, pouring his heart and soul into the performance. Talk about emotional!   

In 1994, after five years away from the recording studio, Jimmy released his 18th studio album called Fruitcakes. The 13-track album featured an array of many amazing covers and originals (it's Jimmy Buffett after all, of course it was great), but one particularly touching song on the album was, "Delaney Talks To Statues". Hearing Jimmy speak so highly of his little girl shows just how proud of a father he really is. We love it! 

Check out the video below to see Jimmy's touching tribute to his baby girl, and prepare to be dazzled!

LYRICS BELOW

Delaney talks to statues
As she dances 'round the pool
She chases cats through roman ruins
And stomps on big toadstools
She speaks a language all her own
That I cannot discover
But she knows I love her so
When I tuck her 'neath the covers

Father, daughter
Down by the water
Shells sink, dreams float
Life's good on our boat

Delaney draws me pictures
She finger paints the sand
We chase the dogs and hop like frogs
Then I do my bad handstand
She's growing up too fast for me
And asking lots of questions
Some I know the answers to
And some I'm looking for suggestions

Father, daughter
Born by the water
Surf's up, sun's down
Life in a beach town

And some of the things I've seen
Maybe she won't have to see
But there's a lot I want to pass along
That was handed down to me

Delaney talks to statues
As she dances 'round the pool
She chases cats through Roman ruins
And stomps on big toadstools
She speaks a language all her own
Just a little like her mother
And she knows I love her so
When I tuck her 'neath the covers

Father, daughter
Down by the water
Shells sink, dreams float
Life's good on our boat
