Jayhawks – Sister Cry lyrics

(Olson/Louris)
Sister cry what you needed
Bought yourself things you could not use
Could be some man will come along and claim you
Could be you'll wind up in another town
Sister cry, count the stars
Is many in the sky that passed you by
Could be up ahead you'll be seeing changes
Somehow the changes made won't belong to you
Someone come along and carry you down
(and you called my name)
I was so hungry then
(someone come along and carry you down)
You could not see you
Someone come along
(and lay you down)
And you don't talk at all
It's the hardest way
(someone come along)
And carry you down
Sister cry, you been mistreated
Doesn't mean someone won't let you in
Could be some man will come along and claim you
Could be you'll wind up in another town
This devil's knocking at your door
But I could lead them all astray
Just don't matter what people say
Someone come along and carry you down
(and you called my name)
I was so hungry then
(someone come along and carry you down)
You could not see you
Someone come along
(and lay you down)
And you don't talk at all
It's the hardest way
(someone come along)
And carry you down
Sister cry count the stars
As many in the sky that passed you by
Could be up ahead you'll be seeing changes
Somehow the changes made won't belong to you
Could be up ahead you'll be seeing changes
Somehow the changes made won't belong to you
