"Bless This Mess" as written by and Haley Bonar....
Mom and Dad took me to church,
To learn the Word,
And speak it good
I'm sure I was a good enough little girl
Made them proud
Sing it loud
Oh mister judge I wasn't always this way
I just changed one day, realized life's quite the little parade
For a little girl with a freckled face
I smiled wide, guess I lost my pride,
Guess I lost my pride
Oh I looked straight into the face of jesus
I lifted up my hands and grabbed another man
Oh when I was a little a girl
I made a due,
Fall in love again,
Teach myself the blues, teach myself the blues
That's when I found the bottle and started smoking cigarettes
And I started talking meaner and then I packed up my dress
Oh bless this mess, oh bless this mess
So don't tell me about the good Word
Don't tell me about the finer things in life
Don't tell me about your picket fence,
Your dodd and loving wife
Please just give me a glass of red wine and a steel six string guitar,
If you want to preach the good life then I'll meet you at the bar

so Mom and Dad took me to church to learn the Word to speak it good
I'm sure I was a good enough little girl
Made them proud, sing it loud
I will sing it now
I will sing it now

    "..for a little girl with a freckled face..a smile wide
    guess i lost my pride"

    "..and grabbed another man..
    ..oh, what was alittle girl like me to do.. fall in love again? teach myself the blues? teach myself the blues."

    "...and i started talking meaner.. and then i hiked up my dress"

    General CommentMom and Dad took me to church,
    To learn the Word,
    And speak it good
    I'm sure I was a good enough little girl
    Made them proud, sang it loud
    Oh mister judge I wasn't always this way
    I just changed one day, realized life's quite a little parade
    For a little girl with a freckled face
    A Smile wide, guess I lost my pride,
    Guess I lost my pride
    Oh I looked straight into the face of Jesus
    I lifted up my hands and grabbed another man
    Oh but what’s a little girl like me to do
    Fall in love again,
    Teach myself the blues, teach myself the blues
    that’s when I found the bottle and started smoking cigarettes
    And I started talking meaner and I hiked up my dress
    Oh bless this mess, oh bless this mess
    So don't tell me about the good Word
    About the finer things in life
    Don’t tell me about your picket fence,
    Your darling loving wife
    Please just give me a glass of red wine and a six steel string guitar,
    If you want to preach the good life then I'll meet you at the bar
    So Mom and Dad took me to church to learn the Word, speak it good
    I'm sure I was a good enough little girl
    Made them proud, I sang it loud
    I was singing ??
