Intro:  G D C X2

G                    D          C
My little girl met a new friend just the other day
G                    D               C
On the playground at school, between the tires and the swings
G        D              C
She came home with tear filled eyes
G                  D      C
And she said to me daddy, Alyssa lies

G           D              C
Well I just brushed it off at first
G                 D        C
Cuz I didn't know how much my little girl had been hurt
G      D                   C
Or the things that she had seen
G                   D               C
I wasn't ready when I said you can tell me (she said)
       G            D
Alyssa lies, in the classroom
       C                 D
Alyssa lies, everyday at school
       G           D
Alyssa lies to the teacher
       C                    D
As she tries to cover every bruise

G                        D                  C
When my little girl laid her head down that night to go to sleep
G                          D                 C
As I stepped out the room, I heard her say a prayer so soft and sweet
G          D          C
Lord bless my mom and my dad
G                         D                    C
And my new friend Alyssa, Lord I know she needs you bad (Cuz)

      G            D
Alyssa lies, in the classroom
      C                 D
Alyssa lies, everyday at school
      G           D
Alyssa lies to the teacher
      C                    D
As she tries to cover every bruise

Em7                      C9
I had the worst night of sleep in years
G                              D
As I tried to think of a way to calm her fears
Em7                     C9
And I knew exactly what I had to do
G                                  D
But when we got to school on Monday I heard the news


G             D                      C
My little girl asked me why everybody looked so sad
G                 D                             C
And the lump in my throat grew bigger with every question that she asked
G          D                     C
Till I felt the tears run down my face
G                  D                            C
And I told her that Alyssa wouldn't be at school today
               G          D
Cuz she doesn't lie in the classroom
           C              D
She doesn't lie anymore at school
      G         D
Alyssa lies with Jesus
C                       D
Because there's nothing, anyone could do
G
Tears filled my eyes
D
 when my little girl asked me why
C                    G
Alyssa lies
                     D
Oh daddy
                     C
Oh daddy tell me why
G
Alyssa lies
