Alyssa Lies  Jason Michael Carrol

[Verse 1] 

[D]My little little girl,

[C]met a new friend just the [G]other day,

[D]on the playground at school,

be[C]tween the tires and t[G]he swing,

[D]but she came h[C]ome,

with tear[G]filled eyes,

[D]she said to me [C]daddy,

[G]alyssa lies,

[D]well i just brushed it off at fi[C]rst,

[C]Cause i didnt know,

how much my li[G]ttle girl had been hurt,

[D]I wasnt ready wh[C]en i said,

y[C]ou can tell me,

and she said

[D]alyssa lies to the cla[A]ssroom,

[G]alyssa lies every day a[A]t school,

[D]alyssa lies to the te[A]acher,

[G]as she tries to cover ev[A]ery bruse,

[Verse 2] 

[D]My little girl laid her head down,

[C]that night to go to sleep,

as i ste[G]pped out of the room,

[D]I heard her say a pr[C]ayer so soft and s[G]weet,

[D]God bless my mom and my d[C]ad,

and my n[G]ew friend alyssa,

[Dig In] D
lord i know she needs you bad, because



[D]i had the worst night of sleep in ye[C]ars,

[G]as i thought of a way to calm her fe[D]ars,

A G (i think)
I knew exactly what i had to do

[Verse 3] 

[D]my little girl asked me why,

[C]eveybody looked so sad,

the l[G]ump in my throat grew bigger,

w[D]ith every ques[C]tion that she asked,

[G]until i felt the tears run down my f[D]ace,

[single strum] C
And i told her that alyssa,

[single strum]         G
wouldnt be at school today


[D]cause she doesnt lie in the cla[A]ssroom,

[G]she doesnt lie anymore at sc[A]hool,

[D]Alyssa lies with j[A]esus,

[G]cause theirs nothing anyone can [A]do,

[Final Verse] 

[D]tears filled my e[C]yes,

when my li[G]ttle girl asked why,

[D]oh daddy,[C]oh daddy,

al[G]issa lies
