"The Little Girl"

by: John Michael Montgomery
Transcribed by: Paul Stranieri

Key of Db



Intro: Db Bbm Ab (twice)

Her Parents never took the young girl to church
                               Bbm          Ab
Never spoke of his name, never read her his word
Two nonbelievers walking lost in this world
                                 Bbm        Ab
Took their baby with them what a sad little girl

Her daddy drank all day and mommy did drugs
                             Bbm        Ab
Never wanted to play or give kisses and hugs
She'd watch the TV and sit there on the couch 
                                  Bbm        Ab
while her mom fell asleep and her daddy went out 

        Ab   Bbm         Ab   Gb
and the drinking and the fighting
Db                   Ab
just got worse every night
       Ab    Bbm            Ab Gb
behind their couch she'd be hiding
Db                   Ab
oh what a sad little life

Repeat Intro: Db Bbm Ab

And like it always does the bad just got worse
                    Bbm   Ab
with every slap and every curse 
until her daddy in a drunk rage one night 
                          Bbm           Ab
used a gun on her mom and then took his life 

         Ab Bbm        Ab Gb
and some people from a city
Db                Ab
took the girl far away
     Ab  Bbm       Ab  Gb
to a new mom and a new dad
Db                    Ab
kisses and hugs every day

Repeat Intro: Db Bbm Ab

her first day of Sunday school the teacher walked in
                                    Bbm        Ab
and a small little girl stared at a picture of him 
she said I know that man up there on that cross 
                            Bbm         Ab
I don't know his name but I know he got off 

             Ab    Bbm   Ab  Gb
cause he was there in my old house 
Db                       Ab
and held me close to his side 
     Ab  Bbm          Ab  Gb
as I hid there behind our couch 
Db                        Ab
the night that my parents died

Outro: Repeat Intro
