There's a toad in the witch grass

There's a crow in the corn

Wild flowers on a cross by the road
    C         F C       F
And somewhere a baby is crying
        C
For her mom
       F               C
As the hills turn from green back
   G
To gold
G7             C        C/B   F
Why wasn't God watching?

Why wasn't God there for

Georgia Lee?
