    Lyrics

    A little girl who just turned nine
    Awakes to another fight
    She covers her head
    And closes her eyes.

    How could the neighbors not have heard
    Done a thing or said a word
    What was painfully clear
    Too often occurred.

    The rumors started
    when it all came to an end
    they blamed it on the bottle and said he was a drinkin' man
    Sometimes in the distance
    you can still hear her cry
    Breaking the silence
    In the dead of the night.

    She walks softly down the hall
    Sees his shadow on the wall
    Turns the corner
    Sees her mama fall.

    Daddy went too far this time
    Just about to cross that line
    He never saw it comin'
    He thought he had that forty-five.

    The rumors started
    When it all came to an end
    They blamed it on the bottle and said he was a drinkin' man
    Sometimes in the distance
    You can still hear her cry
    Breaking the silence
    In the dead of the night.

    She didn't chose this life
    She's a victim of circumstance
    But she made a choice that night
    And took the law in her little hands.

    The rumors started
    When it all came to an end
    They blamed it on the bottle and said he was a drinkin' man
    Wometimes in the distance
    You can still hear her cry
    Breaking the silence
    In the dead of the night...
