Father/Daughter AND Mother/Son song - Classic Rock?

I am searching for a good classic rock type song for our Father/Daughter / Mother/Son dance. So it has to be a song that can be for both dads and moms...

My dad is REALLY into music! He LOVES Eric Clapton, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allman Brothers, etc...
This is a very difficult decision for us!!!!
FI was thinking Tuesday by Lynyrd Skynyrd. if you are not familiar with that song here are some of the lyrics:
Train roll on, on down the line,
Won't you please take me far away?
Now I feel the wind blow outside my door,
Means I'm leaving my woman behind.
Tuesday's gone with the wind.
My woman's gone with the wind.
As you can see, it's not really wedding material... what do you think? Its about him leaving his girl and home & now she's gone...

I need help! I will also ask my friend/dj. But I want all your ideas too cause you are all so good at it!

thanks!

    I don't know, but I googled it and came up with these:

    Rock/Pop Father Daughter Dance Songs

    Sweet Child o' Mine – Sheryl Crow. You may get a few laughs when people realize that this is a cover of the Guns n' Roses classic hit, but for rock and metal lovers, this is a great way of including GnR in your wedding without alienating the grandparents.

    Daughters – John Mayer
    Particularly good for daughters who haven't always had smooth relationships with their fathers, Daughters tells fathers to be good to their daughters, and mothers to be good to them too.

    I'll Stand By You - The Pretenders

    How You've Grown - 10,000 Maniacs

    You Got It – Roy Orbison

    Thank You – Led Zeppelin.
    The dads of todays brides are more likely to be Led Zeppelin fans than swing music fans. Appeal to your dad's music taste with a little classic rock.

    Dancing on Daddy's Shoes - Leon Redbone.
    It's hard to say exactly what genre Redbone's music belongs to. His interpretations of early 20th-century music cover rock, folk, jazz, and bluegrass. It's old fashioned while being just a teesy bit modern too.
