Little Girl Left Alone

little girl left alone
where'd her parents go
they went for ride
and never came home

little girl left alone
doesn't have enough to eat
she digs through the garbage bins
in search of some meat

little girl left alone
at night she has to roam
the river banks and railroad tracks
cause she doesn't have a home

little girl left alone
has her daddie's eyes
a wild shade of violet
that darken when she cries

little girl left alone
pushes the blade in
with blood flowing down her arms
this little girl cashes in
