SISTER
Indigo Girls


sister i'm heading out of alabama

so you better think fast

the wind is gonna pick me up now

and the rain won't slack

i'm heading down to georgia

so don't lose track

of where you've been and where you're going now

who you've seen and what they lack

and why you come undone

every time you go there

you come undone


yeah

yeah


i know your heart's in danger

and so is your life

i said you learn to trust a stranger

and stop and rest for the night

set your sight up in the headlight

well the moon won't be enough

(sister)

and light the embers of another

and the night won't won't seem so rough

sister


ah

there was a bloody beast of burden

(i wish i was a mother)

on a dark texas road

(with a baby at my breast)

a woman in a family way

(i am just a farmer)

and a car that lost control

(with a milkcow and a mess)

i'm studying the distance

(i wish i was a mother)

between the blanket and the gun

(with a baby at my breast)

i got ten hours to natchez

(i am just a farmer)

and another ten home

(with a milkcow and a mess)

well i'm goin' home

yes


i know your heart's in danger

(sister)

and so is your life

(sister)

i say learn to trust a stranger

(learn to trust)

and stop and rest for the night

set your sight up in the headlight

yeah the moon won't be enough

and light the embers of another

and the night won't seem so rough

sister

go ahead

i said come on

ah oh yeah

ah oh yeah

ah oh yeah

ah oh yeah


i said it's trust that brought me here

and trust will bring me home
