Little Blossom

Song Author Dolly Parton Lyrics by: Dolly Parton Performer: Dolly Parton Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Oh dear I'm so tired and so [F]lonesome
I [G7]wonder why mommy don't [C]come
She told me to close my [F]blue eyes
And [G7]before I woke up she'd be [C]home

She said she was going to see [F]grandma
Who [G7]lives by the river so [C]wide
And I guess my mommy's fell [F]in there
And [G7]perhaps she won't be home to[C]night

So I guess I'll go down and meet [F]daddy
Per[G7]haps he has stopped at the [C]store
It's a great big store full of [F]bottles
And [G7]I wish he wouldn't go there [C]anymore

So out in the night with the [F]baby
Her [G7]little heart beating with [C]pride
Till her tired feet entered the gin [F]palace
With [G7]music all radiant with [C]light

Oh daddy she cried as she reached [F]him  
I [G7]think that the music's so [C]sweet
But it's almost supper time [F]daddy
Little [G7]blossom wants something to [C]eat  

A moment his blurred eyes gazed [F]wildly
Down [G7]into her face sweet and [C]fair
And as the demon posse[F]ssed him
He [G7]grasped at the back of a [C]chair

A moment a second was [F]over
He [G7]lifted her fair golden [C]head
A moment the baby's lips [F]trembled
Then [G7]poor little blossom was [C]dead


Oh dear I'm so tired and so lonesome
I wonder why mommy don't come
She told me to close my blue eyes
And before I woke up she'd be home

She said she was going to see grandma
Who lives by the river so wide
And I guess my mommy's fell in there
And perhaps she won't be home tonight

So I guess I'll go down and meet daddy
Perhaps he has stopped at the store
It's a great big store full of bottles
And I wish he wouldn't go there anymore

So out in the night with the baby
Her little heart beating with pride
Till her tired feet entered the gin palace
With music all radiant with light

Oh daddy she cried as she reached him
I think that the music's so sweet
But it's almost supper time daddy
Little blossom wants something to eat

A moment his blurred eyes gazed wildly
Down into her face sweet and fair
And as the demon possessed him
He grasped at the back of a chair

A moment a second was over
He lifted her fair golden head
A moment the baby's lips trembled
Then poor little blossom was dead
