The Little Girl by John Michael Montgomery
Transcribed by: Richard E. Skinner III

  C                      F                 C
Her Parents never took the young girl to church

      F             C             Am             G
Never spoke of his name, never read her his word

C                      F               C
Two nonbelievers walking lost in this world

    F             C             Am     G
Took their baby with them what a sad little girl

 C                      F             C
Her daddy drank all day and mommy did drugs

     F            C          Am            G
Never wanted to play or give kisses and hugs

C                       F                C
She’d watch the TV and sit there on the couch

         F           C          Am           G
while her mom fell asleep and her daddy went out

           Am                F
and the drinking and the fighting 

C                           G
just got worse every night

         Am                    F
behind their couch she'd be hiding

C                        G
oh what a sad little life


C                         F             C
And like it always does the bad just got worse

      F       C         Am      G
with every slap and every curse

C                          F                   C
until her daddy in a drunk rage one night

          F             C            Am           G
used a gun on her mom and then took his life

             Am                F
and some people from a city

C                    G
took the girl far away

     Am                    F
to a new mom and a new dad

C                                G
kisses and hugs every day

BRIDGE ( Same as before)

C                                 F                 C
her first day of Sunday school the teacher walked in

        F              C                  Am        G
and a small little girl stared at a picture of him

C                               F         C
she said I know that man up there on that cross

  F                    C           Am            G
I don’t know his name but I know he got off

                  Am               F 
cause he was there in my old house

C                                 G
and held me close to his side

      Am                   F
as I hid there behind our couch

     C                           G
the night that my parents died....... C F C F C AM G
