lifeblood: songs: lyrics: 9 fingers

they say your daddy is a drinkin' man
oh well he's not too bad
just a little bit crazy when he's had a few
got drunk got mad last week
and he cut the finger right off your hand
well you're just three years old
how do you live with what he did to you

you come to me
your hands held out
will i spin you around
but you can't see
how much it hurts me
to put you back down

jj
jj
i see you pushin' that tonka truck
you got your left hand on it
but you're keeping your right hand up

you come to me
your hands held out
will i spin you around
but you can't see
how much it hurts me
to put you back down

you
live in a house
with 9 fingers to go

you
live in a house
with 9 fingers to go

but the day will come
when the man will stand
before your father

there'll be no where to run
no malt liquor can
and no little boy's hand

he'll say down on your knees
count my fingers if you please
do
you
recognize me

you
live in a house
with 9 fingers to go

you
live in a house
with 9 fingers to go
