(ver. 1)
Mary Gauthier
Capo on 1st

               D                       G
A little girl lost. Her world full of pain
                  A                         D
He said it feels good. So she gave him her vein
                   D                         G                  
The dope made her numb. And numb felt like free
                A                             D
Until she came down, down, down to a new misery

              D                        G
A junkie, a whore living for the next high
                       A                        D
She'd lie, cheat and steal. She forgot how to cry
                     D                          G
Wide awake for two weeks shooting heroin then speed
                        A                                      D
When she killed him in cold, cold blood, all she felt was her need

D                       G                     D
Now, it's an eye for an eye and you're gonna die
                    A                      D
It's a tooth for a tooth, your moment of truth.
                  G                    D
There's no mercy here. Your stay is denied
             A                                      D
You better pray, pray, pray you find mercy in the sky

Alone in her cell. No dope in her veins
The killer'd become little girl lost again
She fell to her knees. She prayed she would die
On the cold cement floor she finally cried

And love came like the wind. And Love whispered her name
And love reached through and held her. Love lifted her pain
Fifteen years on death row. Her faith deeper each day
Her last words were "I love you all!" Good-bye, Karla Faye

Now it's an eye for an eye, and you're gonna die
It’s a tooth for a tooth, your moment of truth
There's no mercy here. Your stay is denied
You better pray,pray,pray you find mercy in the sky
