The Little Girl (LP Version) - Alison Krauss

Her parents never took the young girl to church


Never spoke of his name never read her his word

Two non believers walking lost in this world


Took their baby with them what a sad little girl


Her daddy drank all day and mommy did drugs

Never wanted to play or give kisses and hugs


She'd watched the TV and sit there on the couch


While her mom fell asleep and her daddy went out


And the drinking and the fighting


Just got worse every night


Behind their couch she'd be hiding


Oh what a sad little life


And like it always does the bad just got worse


With every slap and every curse


Until her daddy in a drunk rage one night

Used a gun on her mom and then took his life


And some people from the city took the girl far away


To a new Mom and a new Dad


Kisses and hugs every day!


Her first day at Sunday school


The teacher walked in


And a small little girl stared at a picture of him


She said I know that man

There on that cross I don't know his name

But I know he got off


'Cause he was there in my old house


Held me close to his side

As I hid there behind our couch the night my parents died
