She was poor she was simply 13
She was 12 a month in the past
She was residing in Alabama
She was residing in Ohio
She was residing in Georgia
She didn’t have wherever to go

She was younger, she didn’t know the principles
She didn’t assume she might say no
thought it was love and it’d be ceaselessly
In a locker room after college
She couldn’t inform anyone
couldn’t inform her mother or dad
She didn’t know what to do
All she knew was that it was dangerous

She was residing in Alabama
She was residing in Ohio
She was residing in Georgia
She didn’t have wherever to go

Advised a good friend who had been down that highway
Advised a good friend she was late
And the good friend stated she had no alternative
Have the infant or get out of the state
The woman didn’t have a lot cash
and the boy disappeared
for per week she stated she wasn’t feeling good
as she rolled up in a ball of worry

She was residing in Alabama
She was residing in Ohio
She was residing in Georgia
She didn’t have wherever to go

There’s a spot within the run down a part of city
A spot younger ladies keep removed from
She might go and take her possibilities
In an hour the deed be carried out
To the lads in theirs brown fits
To the lads passing legal guidelines
I simply have a easy query
To the lads with out flaws

Have you ever seen a younger woman dying
Have you ever seen em bleed to dying
Have you ever seen a younger woman dying
Have you ever seen em take their last breath
