  • Cold was the night and hard was the ground
    They found her in a small grove of trees
    And lonesome was the place where Georgia was found
    She's too young to be out on the street

    Why wasn't God watching?
    Why wasn't God listening?
    Why wasn't God there
    For Georgia Lee?

    Ida said she couldn't keep Georgia from dropping out of school
    I was doing the best that I could
    Oh, but she just kept running away from this world
    These children are so hard to raise good

    Why wasn't God watching?
    Why wasn't God listening?
    Why wasn't God there
    For Georgia Lee?

    Close your eyes and count to ten
    I will go and hide but then
    Be sure to find me, I want you to find me
    And we'll play all over
    We'll play all over
    We'll play all over
    Again

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

    And why wasn't God watching?
    Why wasn't God listening?
    Why wasn't God there
    For Georgia Lee?

    Why wasn't God watching?
    Why wasn't God listening?
    And why wasn't God there
    For Georgia Lee? Writer/s: KATHLEEN BRENNAN, THOMAS ALAN WAITS
