Written by Ricky & Marty Wilde

Child come away
It's the girl with the deputy walking by
Child go and play
No I won't give you reasons so don't ask why

I read the story about a week ago
They found her on the beach that night
They thought the light had gone out of her eyes
And no-one thinks she'll ever be right
She was so full of her life
Happy with the people she knew
But then no-one can tell

Child come away
It's the girl with the deputy walking by
Child go and play
No I won't give you reasons so don't ask why

Guess all they found were some marks in the sand
A message saying 'She is mine'
Nobody touched her as she got in the car
Well nobody dares to anytime
She was so full of her life
The girl that everybody once knew
But now no-one can tell

Child come away
It's the girl with the deputy walking by
Child go and play
No I won't give you reasons so don't ask why

And when they read a story out to the judge
I heard they had to turn away
It's all over town

I saw her face in the back of a car
As they were speeding out of town
She's got a mark on the side of her face
That no-one's ever seen around
And what she is or what she's become
I guess the town will never know

Child come away
It's the girl with the deputy walking by
Child go and play
No I won't give you reasons so don't ask why
