Help Me Understand

by Hank Williams

A little girl prayed at the close of the day,

Cause her daddy had gone far away,

On her little face was a look of despair,

I stood there and listened, and I heard this prayer

My mommy says daddy has brought us to shame

And I'm never no more to mention his name

Lord take me and lead me and hold to my hand

Oh heavenly father help me understand

You know friends I wonder

Just how many homes are broken tonight

And just how many tears are shed

By some little word of anger

That never should have been said

I'd like to tell you a story

Of a family I once knew.

We'll call them Mary and William

And their little daughter sue

Now Mary was just a plain mother

And bill was just a usual dad

And they had their little family quarrels

(like everybody else)

But neither one really got mad

Then one day something happened

It was nothing of course

But one word led to another

And the last word led to a divorce

Now here were two grown up people

Who failed to use common sense

They strengthened their own selfish pride

At little Sue's expense

You know she didn't ask to be brought to This world

To drift from pillar to post

But a divorce never stops to consider

The ones it hurts the most

There'd be a lot more honest loving

In this wicked ole world today

If just a few parted parents

Could hear little sue say

Take me and lead me and hold to my hand

Oh heavenly father, help me understand
