How far can a little girl fall - Terry Kelly Written by: Ron Hynes Posted by: Steve Cater D She laid her head on the bar Watching tiny little stars G D Dance around in front of her eyes And he cried on her shoulder As he sat there and told her Bm A G Sad stories and pretty white lies D And if not for that one indiscretion G It would have been an uneventful day Bm A If not for that single obsession G A Things would never have gone that way G A But she had one last drink and she didn't think twice D G In fact she didn't think at all G A D My, my, How far can a little girl fall? D They walked out of the bar She climbed into his car G D And they drove to somewhere deep in the night D Where she slipped off her ring And the rest of her things Bm A G And he switched off the tiny dome light A She fell back in his arms without the slightest alarm D G Forgetting everything her mama once said Bm A And just for a moment in the back of her mind G A A tiny picture come and went in her head G A Oh she remembered a man who was waiting at home D G And a baby barely learning to crawl G A D My, my, How far can a little girl fall? Bm A At six fifteen the baby woke up at home G D And the crying shook her daddy awake Bm A At a quarter to seven he made the decision G A B He thought he'd never have to make E Then at eight forty-five that girl came back to life A E In the back seat of a fancy car E To a world of disgrace and a smile on the face C#m B A Of some stranger from a downtown bar A B At nine o'clock she put the key in the lock E A Just a little too late to explain C#m B But she took one minute more before she opened the door A B She went over her story again A B Well the child and the man were both long long gone E A And the note said "Goodbye" and that's all A B E My, my, How far can a little girl fall? A B E Oh-O-O-Oh My, my, How far can a little girl fall?
