"Sister" as written by Amy Elizabeth Ray and Emily Ann Saliers....
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
