        C      F     C         Am       F    C/G
Well, cold was the night, and hard was the ground, 
       F              C            G7sus4   G7
They found her in a small grove of trees,
      C           F   C            Am    F    C/G
And lonesome was the place where Georgia was found,
            F         C          G7sus4   
She's too young to be out on the street!


      G7          C       C  (C/B) F          
Why wasn't God watching?
      G7          C       C  (C/B) F          
Why wasn't God listening?      
      G7          C     G7sus4  G7   C     C/D C        
Why wasn't God there for Geor - gia Lee?



               C       F     C             Am        F   C/G
Ida said she couldn't keep Georgia from dropping out of school,
         F        C          G7sus4   G7
"I was doing the best that I could,
         C        F      C        Am        F    C/G
Oh, but she just kept running a - way from this world,
         F             C            G7sus4   
These children are so hard to raise good!"


G7                C       C  (C/B) F          
Why wasn't God watching?
      G7          C       C  (C/B) F          
Why wasn't God listening?      
      G7          C     G7sus4  G7   C     C/D C        
Why wasn't God there for Geor - gia Lee?


G7sus4  G7   C   Em/B   F       C      G7sus4  G7  C  Em/B F
 Close your eyes, and count to ten, and I---  will go and hide,
    G7sus4  G7  Cmaj7         A7        Dm7          G7
But then,         be sure to find me, I want you to find me,
            C       F           C        F           C        F       C   G7sus4
And we'll play all over, we'll play all over, we'll play all over a - gain!


   G7      C       F    C                    Am       F  C/G
There's a toad in the witch grass, there's a crow in the corn,
       F            C          G7sus4   G7
Wild flowers on a cross by the road,
         C    F  C       Am         F  C/G
And somewhere a baby is crying for her mom, 
         F               C           G7sus4  
As the hills turn from green back to gold!
 

G7                 C      C  (C/B) F          
Why wasn't God watching?
      G7          C       C  (C/B) F          
Why wasn't God listening?      
      G7          C     G7sus4  G7   C           
Why wasn't God there for Geor - gia Lee?

     G7           C       C  (C/B) F         
Why wasn't God watching?

Why wasn't God listening?

Why wasn't God there for--- Geor - gia Lee?
