Georgia Lee  Tom Waits

[C]Cold was [F]the [C]night, [F]hard was the [C]ground
They [F]found her in a [C]small grove of [G]trees[G7]
[C]Lonesome was [F]the [C]place where [F]Georgia was [C]found
She's too [F]young to be [C]out
On the [G]street.
[G7]Why wasn't God [C]watching?[C/B]      [F]
Why [G7]wasn't God [C]listening?[C/B]      [F]
Why [G7]wasn't God [C]there for
[G7]Georgia [C]Lee?
Ida said she [C]couldn't [F]keep [C]Georgia
From [F]dropping out of [C]school
I was [F]doing the [C]best that I [G]could [G7]
But [C]she just [F]kept [C]runnin a[F]way from this [C]world
These [F]children are so [C]hard to raise [G]good
[G7]Why wasn't God [C]watching?[C/B]      [F]
Why [G7]wasn't God [C]listening?[C/B]      [F]
Why [G7]wasn't God [C]there for
[G7]Georgia [C]Lee?
[G]Close your [C]eyes and [F]count to [C]ten
[G]I will [C]go and h[F]ide but [G]then
[Em]Be sure to [A]find me. I [F]want you to [G]find me
And we'll [C]play all [F]over
We will [C]play all [F]over
We will [C]play all [F]over a[C]gain   [G]    [G7]
There's a [C]toad in [F]the [C]witch grass
There's a [F]crow in the [C]corn
Wild [F]flowers on a [C]cross by the [G]road [G7]
And [C]somewhere [F]a [C]baby is [F]crying
For her [C]mom
As the [F]hills turn from [C]green back
To [G]gold
[G7]Why wasn't God [C]watching?[C/B]      [F]
Why [G7]wasn't God [C]listening?[C/B]      [F]
Why [G7]wasn't God [C]there for
[G7]Georgia [C]Lee?
Why [G7]wasn't God [C]watching?[C/B]      [F]
Why [G7]wasn't God [C]listening?[C/B]      [F]
Why [G7]wasn't God [C]there for
[G7]Georgia [C]Lee?
