(VERSE 1)

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 words
C                          F             C
Two non-believers walking lost in this world
            F          C          Am          G
Took their baby with them what a sad little girl

(Verse 2)

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 that couch
           F          C            Am         G
While her mom fell asleep and her daddy went out

(Chorus 1)

           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

(Verse 3)

C                            F             C
And like it always does the bad just got worse
       F    C         Am        G
With every slap and every and curse
C                      F               C
Until her daddy in a drunk rage one night
        F          C          Am        G
Used a gun on her mom & then took his life


(Chorus 2)

          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 every day

C                               F             C
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


( Chorus 3 )
             Am               F
Cos 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
