09. She Walked Away

Dad Gindling

Domestic violence was in the headlines, compliments of the NFL.

She walked away from his beatings

From his love and all his drunken [C]nights

 

Chorus

She walked away

She walked away

Never walked away from anything in her life

 

Through tears he promised he’d be changing

Said it after he’d punched her in the face

 

Chorus

She walked away

She walked away

Never walked away, but she needs out of this place

 

Bridge

When they first met

He’d open doors

Into his life

She wanted more

So they were wed

The first few years: happiness

 

Then he lost his job

And found his fists

Been a better wife

Wouldn’t have come to this

Then he showed her how

he was the man

She felt too helpless to form a plan

 

Chorus

She walked away

She walked away

Never walked away from anything in her life

 

She walked away

She walked away

Never walked away, she’d felt it just wasn’t right

 

She grabbed the two kids and the luggage

Packed 16 years in just three bags

 

Chorus

She walked away

She walked away

She walked away with what mattered was in her hands

 

They got that old car up and running

Raced through a dozen traffic lights

 

Bridge

When they first met

He’d open doors

Into his life

She wanted more

So they were wed

The first few years: happiness

 

Then he lost his job

And found his fists

Been a better wife

Wouldn’t have come to this

Then he showed her how

he was the man

She felt too helpless to form a plan

 

Chorus

She’s walked away

She’s walked away

Finally walked away from all his violence

 

She’s walked away

She’s walked away

Finally walked away toward a better life without
