[Verse 1]
        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!


[Chorus]
      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?


[Verse 2]
               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!"


[Chorus]
      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?


[Bridge]
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
And we'll play ...all over, we'll play ...all over,
       C           F        C    G7sus4
We'll play ...all over a - gain!


[Verse 3]
   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!


[Chorus]
      G7          C          C     C/B    F
Why wasn't God watching?  |  /  /   /  |  /  /  /  |

Why wasn't God listening? |  /  /   /  |  /  /  /  |
      G7          C     G7sus4  G7   C
Why wasn't God there for Geor - gia Lee?


[Chorus]
      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?
