The Little Girl


             ---------------------------The Little Girl---------------------------------


Verse I

Her parents never took the youg girl to church,
                    Am                     G
Never spok of His name, never read her His Word.
Two non believers walking lost in this world.
                     Am                        G
Took there baby with them, oh what a sad little girl.
Her daddy drank all day and mommy did drugs
                   Am                   G
Never wanted to play or give kisses and hugs
She'd watch the TV and sit there on that couch, 
                      Am                     G
While her mom fell asleep and her daddy went out.

Chorus I
        F                   Fmaj7
And the drinking, and the fighting,
C                    G
Just got worse every night
       F                     Fmaj7
Behind their couch, she'd be hiding,
C                     G
Oh what a sad little life

Verse II
And like it always does, the bad just got worse,
         Am               G
With ever slap, and every curse
Until her daddy in a drunk rage one night, 
                 Am                     G
Used a gun on her mom, and then took his life.

Chorus II
          F               Fmaj7
Then some people, from the city,
C                 G
Took the girl far away 
         F          Fmaj7
To a new mom, and a new daddy
C                     G
Kisses and hugs every day.

Verse III
First day of Sunday school, the teacher walked in,
                   Am                            G
Saw a small little girl, staring at a picture of him.
She said I know that man, there on that cross, 
                 Am                     G
I don't know his name, but I know he got off.

Chorus III
             F           Fmaj7
Cause he was there in my old house,
C                     G
Held me close to his side.
     F                Fmaj7
As I hid there behind our couch.
C                         G
The night that my parents died.
