  • Another late night on 14th and Main
    Should daddy's little girl be out this late
    She takes off her clothes and she closes her eyes
    Tears start to fall and she looks at her life

    It wasn't her fault that you weren't around
    To keep her away from the things that she found
    God only knows what else could go wrong
    Somebody come take this little girl home

    They found her body face down dead in the rain
    Such a shame
    Such a pretty face never should have felt this pain
    Who's to blame, such a shame

    Every young girl in this world needs love
    Somebody to hold so they don't give up
    It's our mothers and daughters and sisters you see
    When your angel cries then you'll see what I mean

    It wasn't her fault that you weren't around
    To keep her away from the things that she found
    God only knows what else could go wrong
    Somebody come take this little girl home

    They found her body face down, dead in the rain
    Such a shame
    Such a pretty face never should have felt this pain
    Who's to blame, such a shame

    There's a place in heaven for every little girl
    Lord that gets taken in this dirty world
    They found her body face down, dead in the rain
    Such a shame
    Such a pretty face never should have felt this pain

    They found her body face down, dead in the rain
    Such a shame
    Such a pretty face never should have felt this pain
    Such a shame

    They found her body face down, dead in the rain Writer/s: BENJAMIN DANIEL WELLS, CHRISTOPHER BRYANT ROBERTSON, CHRISTOPHER ROBERTSON, JOHN FREDERICK YOUNG, JONATHAN MICHAEL LAWHON, RICHARD OREN YOUNG
