The Little Girl3  John Montgomery

[C]Her parents never took the young girl t[F]o church[C]
Never spok[F]e of his name, ne[D]ver read her his w[Am]ords[G]
[C]Two nonbelievers walking lost in thi[F]s world[C]
Took their baby [F]with them, wh[C]at a sad little gir[Am]l[G]
Her daddy drank all day and mommy did drugs
Never wanted to play, or give kisses and hugs
She'd watch the T.V. and sit there on the couch
While her mom fell asleep and her daddy went out
    An[Am]d the drinking and the fighting [F]
    Jus[C]t got worse every night [G]
    Be[Am]hind their couch
    She'd be hiding[F]
    Oh[C] what a sad little life[G]
And like it always does the bad just got worse
With every slap, and every curse
Until her daddy, in a drunk rage one night
Used a gun on her mom, and then took his life
And some people from the city
Took the girl far away
To a new mom and a new dad
Kisses and hugs every day
Her first day of Sunday school the teacher walked in
And a small little girl, stared at a picture of him
She said I know that man up there on the cross
I don't know his name, but I know he got off
Cause he was there in my old house
And held me close to his side
As I hid there behind our couch
The night that my parents died
