She’s On Her Own

She's gotta picture of her mama on a keychain
And a bruise on her face from her dad
With a pack of smokes and a Mountain Dew
She's doin' what she has to do, and it hurts
But she ain't going back

She's on her own, and she's too young to be all alone
It's a bittersweet sixteen
Sometimes she feels so helpless, she cries herself to sleep
Lost and scared with no one to hold
She's on her own

She met Danny Jenkins at a truck stop
And soon they headed out to Santa Fe
Their love was wild and he was too
In three months there's a baby due but he's gone
And he ain't coming back

She's on her own, and she's too young to be all alone
With a child at seventeen
Sometimes she feels so helpless, she cries herself to sleep
Lost and scared with no one to hold
She's on her own

One cold autumn morning, at a neighborhood Wal-Mart
They found a baby in a blanket, lying in a shopping cart
With a note tucked in her arms

She's on her own, and she's too young to be all alone
A little girl at 18 weeks
Sometimes she feels so helpless, she cries herself to sleep
Lost and scared with no one to hold
She's on her own
