LOST GIRL
A bluegrass lullaby
by Stephen Wayne
September 2011

Love me or hate me but never ignore me with tears in her eyes she
screamed at the world...

I rocked her pine cradle and gave her some candy and told her the
best lies that I'd ever heard...


Hey little girl why are you falling from the mountains of snow down
the rivers of time...

The sun and the moon and the stars they are calling so hey little girl
just rise up and shine...

Hey little girl why are you crying the earth big and blue keeps on
turning for you...

Everyone wants you and every one needs you and everyone loves
you the way that i do...


She grew up a laughing she grew up a playing she woke up one
morning and drifted away...

Way done in St Louis she's making a living and some nights she
calls me with nothing to say...


Way up in the mountains round my little cabin the wind in the
willies sing like a lost girl...

Love me or hate me but never ignore me with tears in her eyes she
screams at the world...
