my lit(G)tle girl(D) met a new friend, (C)just the other day, on the play(G)ground at(D) school between the (C)tires and the swings SAME AS FIRST VERSE... But she came home with tear-filled eyes, and she said to me "Daddy, Alyssa lies" Well I just brushed it off at first, 'cause I didn't know how much my little girl had been hurt or the things she had seen. I wasn't ready when I said "You can tell me" and she said... (C) "Alyssa lies(G) to the class(D)room, Alyssa li(C)es everyday at sch(D)ool, Alyssa li(G)es to the tea(D)chers as she tri(C)es to cover every bru(D)ise" SAME AS FIRST VERSE... My little girl laid her head down that night to go to sleep. As I stepped out the room, I heard her say a prayer so soft and sweet "God bless my mom and my Dad and my new friend, Alyssa *oh*I know she needs you bad CHORUS Because Alyssa lies to the classroom, Alyssa lies everyday at school, Alyssa lies to the teachers as she tries to cover every bruise" (bridge) I had the worst nig(Em)ht of sleep in years (A7) as I tried (Em) to think of a way to calm her fears (A7) I knew (Em) just what it was I had to do (A7) but when we got (Em) to school on Monday I heard (D) the news same as first verse... My little girl asked me why everybody looked so sad the lump in my throat grew bigger with every question that she asked. Until I felt the tears run down my face and I told her that Alyssa wouldn't be at school today PLAY THE CHORUS CHORDS HERE... 'Cause she doesn't lie in the classroom she doesn't lie anymore at school Alyssa lies with Jesus because there's nothin' anyone would do SAME AS FISRT VERSE Tears filled my eyes when my little girl asked me why Alyssa lies *Oh Daddy, oh* Daddy tell me why (C) Alyssa lies (G)
