Song Description

Using an acoustic Martin 6-string.

Story Behind the Song

I just put some sad 'minor or diminished chords' together and it developed into a sappy type of song. I thought "what is really sad? Ah! child abuse". So, since this theme has been done to death, I thought i'd make mine stand out!

Lyrics

Prepare yourself
This song is sad
Some people out there
Are just plain bad.

You cornered me
I told a lie
You beated me
Just to see me cry

Mama couldn't take your lovin' Pa
Hittin' on her was all I saw.
I'll be good Daddy, I promise you
I'm sorry, I'm sorry, what did I do?

Why do you have
To hurt me Pa?
Ya' slap my face
Until I'm raw

A man come by
I heard em' yell
Papa swore me
To never tell

Mama couldn't take your lovin' Pa
Hittin' on her was all I saw.
I'll be good Daddy, I promise you
I'm sorry, I'm sorry, what did I do?

I fight the dog
To take his food
I'm so hungry
Ah, hardly move

I hide in the closet
When you come home
Is it cigarette burns
Or broken bone(s).

I'll be good Daddy, I promise you
I'm sorry, I'm sorry, what did I do?
Seen him throw my brother down a wishin' well
Will heaven take a baby that's been through hell?

I think I know
Somethin's wrong
Where's my Mama
It's been too long

My mother ran away
`Cause it hurt so bad
Left me with you,
Now ain't that sad

Mama couldn't take your lovin' Pa
Hittin' on her was all I saw.
I'll be good Daddy, I promise you
I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry

what could I do?

I took Daddy's gun
And with no remorse
From now on Daddy...

You'll be kicking a dead horse.
