https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oo7f-mnjt-M&t=28s I became Pro Life about 20 years ago. I gave it a lot of thought and just saw most abortions as just plain wrong. I am ok with the exceptions like incest, rape, health of the mom and babies that are deformed etc. BUT I just don't think it's right to kill unborn babies just because. I'm also for free birth control and better education. Also ok with easier adoption rules and better orphanages. SO that is what this song is about....a young woman who decides after an unwanted pregnancy to not to have an abortion but to give the baby to somebody who wants it.

PEGGY MAE WAS 3 MONTHS LATE
AND DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO
SHE COULDN'T HIDE IT ANYMORE
THAT'S HOW MUCH HER BELLY GREW

PREGNANT WITH CHILD AT 17
WAS MORE THAN SHE COULD BEAR
SCARED TO DEATH...NO PLACE TO HIDE
SHE COULD HARDLY BREATHE IN AIR

(CHORUS)

THERE ARE CHOICES WE MAKE
THAT MEAN SO MUCH
THAT AFFECT OUR LIVES
AND THE PEOPLE WE TOUCH

ISN'T IT AMAZING THAT SOMETHING SO SMALL
CAN BE THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL


THERE COMES A TIME
IN ALL OUR LIVES
WHEN WE FACE OURSELVES
AND ALL THE LIES

ISN'T IT AMAZING THAT SOMETHING SO SMALL
CAN BE THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL


SHE DECIDED TO GIVE HER BABY AWAY
AFTER MANY SLEEPLESS NIGHTS
SHE TOSSED AND TURNED AND PRAYED TO GOD
"PLEASE HELP ME DO WHAT'S RIGHT


SHE DECIDED (PLANNED) TO TELL HER MOM AND DAD
AND HOPED THEY'D UNDERSTAND
SHE'D MADE A MISTAKE AND WANTS TO MAKE IT RIGHT
AND THAT WAS TO BE HER PLAN


(REPEAT CHORUS)


SO THE DAY ARRIVED AND HER DAUGHTER CAME
AND SHE LOVED IT WITH ALL SHE HAD
BUT TRUE TO HER WORD SHE GAVE IT UP
TO A LOVING MOM AND DAD

SHE WOULD ALWAYS LOVE THAT GIRL
BUT SHE DID WHAT SHE HAD TO DO
A DIFFICULT CHOICE SHE HAD TO MAKE
BUT THE PROPER ONE SHE KNEW

(REPEAT C
