Indigo Girls – Sister lyrics

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 headed down to Georgia
So don't lose track
Of where you 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.

I know your heart's in danger
And so is your life.
I said you learn to trust a stranger,
Stop and rest for the night.
Set your site up in the headlight
The moon won't be enough.
Light the embers of another
And the night won't seem so rough,
Sister.

There was a bloody beast of burden
On a dark Texas road,
A woman in the family way
And a car that lost control.
Now I'm studying the distance
Between the blanket and the gun,
I got ten miles to Natchez and another ten home.

I know your heart's in danger
And so is your life.
I said you learn to trust a stranger,

Stop and rest for the night.
Set your site up in the headlight,
The moon won't be enough.
Light the embers of another
And the night won't seem so rough.
Sister, go ahead, come on.

I said it's trust that brought me here
And trust will bring me home
