Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

The Little Girl7  John Montgomery

[D]Her parents never took the young girl to church
                                    [E]never spoke[A] of his name,  never read her his word
[D]Two non-belivers walking lost in this world
                                    [E]took their baby[A] with-in,  what a sad little girl
[D]Her daddy drank all day and mommy did drugs
                                    [E]never w[A]anted to play,  or give kisses and hugs
[D]She'd watch the T.V. and sit there on the couch
                                    [E]while her mom [A]fell asleep,  and her daddy went out
[G]And the drinking, and the fighting[A]
[D]Just got worse every night[A]
behind thei[G]r couch she'd be hiding[A]
[D]oh what a sad little life[A]
[D]Just like it always does,  the bad just got worse
with every slap,  and every curs[E]e[A]
[D]untill her daddy hit a drunk rage one night
                                    [E]used a g[A]un on her mom, and then took his life
                                    [G]And some people from [A]the cit[D]y, took the girl far [A]away
                                 [G]to a new mom and a ne[A]w dad, kiss[D]es and hugs everyd[A]ay
[D]Her first day of sunday school, the teacher walked in
                                    [E]and a [A]small little girl stared at a picture of him
[D]she said I know that man up there on that cross
                                    [E]I do[A]nt know his name but I know he got off
[G]Cause he was there in my old house[A]
[D]and held me close to his side[A]
as I hi[G]d there behind our couch[A]
[D]the night that my parents died[A]
