[3/4 time] F C A tongue can accuse and carry bad news F C The seeds of distrust it will sow F C But unless you've made no mistakes in your life G7 C Be careful of stones that you throw
Spoken: F A neighbor was passing my garden one time C G7 She stopped and I knew right away C That it was gossip not flowers she had on her mind G7 C And this is what I heard my neighbor say F That girl down the street should be run from our midst C G7 She drinks and she talks quite a lot C She knows not to speak to my child or to me G7 C My neighbor then smiled and I thought
Spoken: F A car speeded by and the screaming of brakes C G7 A sound that made my blood chill C For my neighbor's one child had been pulled from the path G7 C And saved by a girl lying still F The child was unhurt and my neighbor cried out
C G7 Oh who was that brave girl so sweet C I covered the crushed broken body and said G7 C The bad girl who lived down the street
