The Little Girl
John Michael Montgomery

C                          Am            C
Her parents never took the young girl to church
      Am            C           Am            G
Never mentioned his name, never mentioned his word
C                        Am           C
Two nonbelievers walking lost in this world
           Am        C           Am         G
Took their baby with them what a sad little girl
C                           Am        C
Her daddy drank all day and mommy did drugs
      Am        C            Am         G
Never wanted to play or give kisses and hugs
C                          Am           C
She’d watch the TV and sit there on the couch
          Am        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                           Am           C
And like it always does the bad just got worse
     Am     C       Am    G
With every slap and every curse
C                    Am             C
Until her daddy in a drunk rage one night
       Am         C       Am            G
Used a gun on her mom and then took his life

Am                       F
And some people from the city
C                 G
Took the girl far away
Am                 F
To a new mom and a new dad
C                   G
Kisses and hugs everyday

Her first day of Sunday school
    Am             C
The teacher walked in
      Am         C                Am         G
And a sad little girl stared at a picture of him

C                           Am            C
She said I know that man up there on that cross
  Am             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
