Baby in the rain

Rockport, Maine

Before you knew them, someone you love had suffered beneath the hands of others. A father feels so much tenderness for his adopted daughter. He doesn’t always know how to help her, but he finds joy as she discovers her own unique gifts that she uses to overcome her past.

Lyrics

She showed up on our doorstep
Way out in the country
My little baby, baby in the rain

Innocent and broken,
The child of a broken woman
My little baby, baby in the rain

Oh it’s hard
‘Cause she’d been kicked around
Oh, dear God
What am I gonna do now?
What am I gonna do now?

She fights like the devil
But she prays like Elijah
My little baby, baby in the rain

Now she’s getting older
Temptation all around her
My little baby, baby in the rain

Oh it’s hard
‘Cause she’d been kicked around
Oh, dear God
What am I gonna do now?
What am I gonna do now?

She took a look around her
Said I can rise above that
My little baby, baby in the rain

She said, Papa you know
I can ride those horses
My little baby, baby in the rain
