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?
