Her Six Daughters – My Sister's Dress lyrics

Grateful as an orphan
Invited to the ball
I seduced your picture
There up on my wall
I borrowed without asking
I kept without regret
We drove that truck backwards
Down twisting turning roads
I whispered family secrets
No one should ever know
I wanted you so badly
I had to confess
She'd never do the things I did
In my sister's dress
In my sister's dress
I felt free and rotten through and through
I'm a sinner blessed
Laid out across the hood
In my sister's dress
The shoes I bought at Woolworths
Were two inches too tall
Twisted my foot in gravel
You did not let me fall
I pulled that hem to mid-thigh
She never would have guessed
All the fun I had that night
In my sister's dress
In my sister's dress
I felt free and rotten through and through
I'm a sinner bless
Laid out across the hood
I had no regrets
Lost everything I could
In my sister's dress
