Intro:  C      Csus2  C     Csus2 C    G  C

  C                           Csus2         C 
1 Her parents never took the young girl to church
2 Her daddy drank all day and momma did drugs
3 And like it always does the bad just got worse
4 The first day of sunday school the teacher walked in

          Dm         C              Am         G
  Never spoke of His name; never read her His word
  Never wanted to play or give kisses and hugs
  With every slap and every curse
  And a small little girl stared at a picture of Him

  C                         Csus2             C
  Two non believers walkin lost through this world
  She'd watch the TV and sit there on the couch
  Until her daddy in a drunk rage one night
  She said I know that man up there on that cross
  
             Dm          C          Am          G
  Took their baby with them, what a sad little girl
  While mom fell asleep and her daddy went out.
  pulled a gun on her mom and then took his life
  I don't know His name but I know He got off


CHORUS

          G/A       Am           G/B       F
1 And the drink  -  ing and the fight  -  ing
2 Then   some   people from the  ci  -  ty 
3 He was there      in   my      old    house

   C                    G
  just got worse every night
  took the girl far away
  and held me close to His side

          G/A   Am            G/B    F
  Behind their couch she'd be hid - ing
  Too a  new   mom and a     new    dad
  AsI    hid   there         our   couch  

 C                     G
  Oh what a sad little life
  kisses and hugs everyday
  the night that my parents died

play intro again, and to end the song

I play the intro this way and it sounds pretty accurate when played with the song.
