  • Brought Up That Way lyrics

    Emily comes home from school,
    Grabs onto her daddy's hand,
    He says "baby girl what's wrong with you?"
    She says "please don't make me go back there again"

    She said "I wish there was some way
    To make them stop it"
    So he drives down to
    That principle's ofice and says

    "I didn't bring her up
    So they could cut her down
    I didn't bring her here
    So they could shut her out
    I live my whole damn life
    To see that little girl's smile
    So why are tears pouring down
    That sweet face?
    She wasn't brought up that way"
    [ Lyrics from: ]
    Emily's home late again
    He sees that boy drive away
    Oh, but something different this time,
    She doesn't have too much to say
    She said "he tried but
    There's just some things I won't do"
    And through the tears
    She said "I couldn't do that to you"
    And he said

    "I didn't bring you up so he could wear
    You down
    Take that innocent heart
    And turn it inside out
    I live my whole damn life
    To see my little girl's smile
    So don't let nobody take that away,
    You weren't brought up that way"

    The phone rings on a rainy night
    Says "it's Officer Tate"
    He said "sir, there's been an accident,
    You better come down here right away,
    A drunken driver missed an overpass,
    And Emily, she's fading fast"
    He says "God, I didn't bring her up
    To watch them lay her down
    Nearly killed me the day
    They put her
    Momma in the ground
    Only thing that kept me alive,
    Was that little girl's smile
    So please don't take that away,
    I won't be easy taking her today,
    She wasn't brought up that way"

    He stands over the hospital bed
    Emily opens her eyes
