Sister I'm heading out of Alabama so you better think fast
Wind is gonna pick me up now and the rain won't slack
I'm heading down to Georgia so don't lose track
Where you've been and where you're going now
Who you've seen and what they lack
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
And 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 a family way and a car that lost control
I'm studying the distance between the blanket and the gun
I got ten hours to Natchez and another ten home
Well I'm goin' home
Yes

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 an' 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 hoo yea
Ah hoo yea
Ah hoo yea
Ah hoo yea

I said,"It's trust that brought me here
And trust will bring me home"
