The Little Girl Lyrics - John Michael Montgomery
Review The Song (50)
Her parents never took the young girl to church
Never spoke of His Name
Never read her His Word
Two non-believers walkin' lost in this world
Took their baby with them, what a sad little girl
Her Daddy drank all day and Mommy did drugs
Never wanted to play, or give kisses and hugs
She'd watch the TV, and sit there on the couch
While her Mom fell asleep, and her Daddy went out
And the drinking and the fighting just got worse every night
Behind their couch she'd be hiding, oh what a sad little life
And like it always does, the bad just got worse
With every slap and every curse
Until her Daddy, in a drunken rage one night
Used a gun on her Mom, and then took his life
And some people from the city took the girl far away
To a new Mom and a new Dad
Kisses and hugs everyday
Her first day of Sunday school, the teacher walked in
And a small little girl stared at a picture of Him
She said, I know that man there on that cross
I don't know His name, but I know He got off
Cause He was there in my old house
And held me close to His side
As I hid there behind our couch
The night that my parents died

Context | Reviewer: Harley | 3/29/11
"We have no clue [...] but if it aint true, it ought to be." That, on it's own in reference to this song does indeed make it sound bad, at least with the first half of the song, but I think, mind that it's what I think, is that he was meaning about the girl receiving a better life, not that her family was dead.
Aside from that, I believe that the song itself is very sad, but at the same time, very uplifting, it's one of my favourite songs.

"Awful songwriting, terrible theme and an immoral songwriter."
Just because something is hard to swallow dose not make it garbage. There are many things in this world that we do not want to think about or know about, but that dose not mean that they do not happen. It takes a great songwriter to write about it, and a great artist to sing it. This is just my thought and we are all intilteled to are own.

it is very sad to hear this song. i have heard it so many times but never really looked up the lyrics. this song reminds me of my life in a way. my father was really abusive without the alcohol. but when he did drink he became worse. i watched him hit my mother every night. i always wished there was something i could do. when i was 7 my sister was 21. we had the same mom but different dads. come to find out my dad had abused her and sexually raped her. i lost my dad at 7 and he only got 6 months in jail. they had pictures and evidence i jus dont see the justice in 6 months for ruining a girls whole life.
Trite garbage | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/12/09
Awful songwriting, terrible theme and an immoral songwriter. To put this in context: the man who wrote this son (Harley Allen) based it upon a forward email he had received. When asked about the legitimacy of the story he told USA Today: "We have no clue [...] but if it aint true, it ought to be." It takes a pretty despicable heart to wish that a song about a girl being abused, and then witnessing her parents murder suicide, would be true. This song is utterly terrible.
i love this sone | Reviewer: ashley nichols | 12/9/08

So sad! | Reviewer: rachael | 11/19/08
Omgg this song just makes tears come to my eyes... I am 12 right now and I am jsut so lucky that I have loving parents here with me. Also, for the young (lady) i think, that wrote about her mom and her dad in one of these comments, I have all the sympathy in the world for you! I hope it didnt leave trama to your life.. I have no clue how old you are, though. This song is so beautiful but yet so true. With god by all the victims side. I pray they will be safe.

Rang true for my kids... | Reviewer: Kraig | 12/26/07
2 years ago my wife and I adopted 2 children. When they played this song at our church they both were amazed and whispered in my wife's ear "That sounds just like us". No, their dad didn't kill their mom, but the fact that they related to such a sad past tore my heart out. The fact that they also related to such a good ending brought tears to my eyes.
awesome | Reviewer: unknown | 12/1/07
I first heard this song on the radio coming back from florida years ago and the thing i loved the most about the song was that the message or at least i what got from it was that no matter what you go through god is always with you and sometimes it seems like its a lot or even unbearable but god always manages to bring us through and i think thats what makes this song awesome and so haert touching

Just learning the song for my band---I think that the great Harley Allen wrote this one---I saw him do it at a guitar pull in Nashville a number of years back, and it was one of the best musical moments of my life. I heard that his brother has sent the chain letter to him---and when you have a great talent for lyrics---this is what you get.
About the song The Little Girl by John Michael Montgomery | Reviewer: Trevor | 8/22/07
I remember hearing this song years ago and I finally heard it again today at work. It was tough, because it brought tears to my eyes and I had to work pretty hard to fight them back. The song itself is just so touching, no matter who you are it'll make you feel something in your heart.
I've always been a JMM fan, and this is just one of the many master pieces he turns out.
