The Secret Sisters Dirty Lie

Time’ll tell the seeds I sow

Got into trouble but you just don’t know

You thought you had me

You’re wondering why

Whosoever told you

Told a dirty lie

Now I’m leaving, what can you do?

Who made you think I wanna be with you

I never settle, I never cry

And whosoever told you

Told a dirty lie

Already I’m winning the game

Your heart’s gonna break

And it’s a crying shame

A lesson learned a long time ago

I make sure I take it with me when I go

You’ll be alone when the sun goes down

Toss your name in the list and found

I never loved you baby

My oh my

And whosoever told you

Told a dirty lie

The Secret Sisters The One I Love Is Gone

I don’t know, I don’t know

Where I’ll go or what I’ll do

It makes no difference

What I’ll do without you

Oh, I love you, my darling

But I’ll try and let you be

Goodbye, it’s the last

You’ll hear of me

Well, I found a bluebird

High on a mountain side

And the little bird

Would sing its little song

So I’ll sigh, I’ll cry

I’d even wanna die

For the one I love is gone

Well, I found a bluebird

High on a mountain side

And the little bird

Would sing its little song

So I’ll sigh, I’ll cry

I’d even wanna die

For the one I love has gone

The Secret Sisters Lonely Island

I’m living on a lonely island

And I love this ocean full of misery

I’ll die here, on my lonely island

Unless you give back your sweet love back to me

I can’t seem to take it

I’m blue as I can be

I’m blind to any other lovers’ charm

I know I can make it

Without your love for me

I’ve got to have you back

Here in my arms

I’m living on a lonely island

And I love this ocean full of misery

I’ll die here, on my lonely island

Unless you give your sweet love back to me

The Secret Sisters Rattle My Bones

There’s no telling what I’d do

If I could get my hands on you

I want you and don’t know why

But now I know I’d like to try

Am I never know your mind

How I’d love to keep you in line

I should smile and tell you no-o

But how I’d hate to see you go

Oh yeaaaaahhhhhhh

You rattle my bones

Shake my heart like a ten-pound stone

Sometimes wish I’d left you alone

Oh yeaaaaahhhhhhh

You’re makin’ me weep

Wake me up nights and I can’t sleep

Are you gonna be the death of me?

I could show you who you are

And I could kiss you in the dark

I could take it way too far

But I could never win your heart

Oh yeaaaaahhhhhhh

You rattle my bones

Take my heart like a ten-pound stone

Sometimes wish I’d left you alone

Oh yeaaaaahhhhhhh

You’re makin’ me weep

Wake me up nights and I can’t sleep

Are you gonna be the death of me?

There’s no telling what I’d do

If I could get my hands on you

I want you and don’t know why

But now I know I’d like to try

Oh yeaaaaahhhhhhh

You rattle my bones

Shake my heart like a ten-pound stone

Sometimes wish I’d left you alone

Oh yeaaaaahhhhhhh

You’re makin’ me weep

Wake me up nights and I can’t sleep

Are you gonna be the death of me?

The Secret Sisters Somethin’ Stupid

I know I stand in line

Until you think you have the time

To spend an evening with me

And if we go someplace to dance

I know that there’s a chance

You won’t be leaving with me

Then afterwards we drop into a quiet little place

And have a drink or two

And then I go and spoil it all

By saying something stupid

Like I love you

I can see it in your eyes

That you despise the same old lines

You heard the night before

And though it’s just a line to you

For me it’s true

And never seemed so right before

I practice every day to find some clever lines to say

To make the meaning come through

But then I think I’ll wait until the evening gets late

And I’m alone with you

The time is right

Your perfume fills my head

The stars get red

And oh the night’s so blue

And then I go and spoil it all

By saying something stupid

Like I love you

[x2]

I love you…

The Secret Sisters Iuka

I’d never tell a man to ask my Daddy for my hand.

I’ve got a thousand tales about the temper of that man.

He’d shoot a man who came within a mile of my young frame.

But I know that you will take the risk so I can take your name.

You’ve got the ring; I’ve got the keys and sixty miles a head.

Iuka, Mississippi, where the two of us will wed.

Take me down to Iuka, Mississippi ‘fore he knows the two of us have up and gone.

Take me down to Iuka, Mississippi we can run away and never come home.

Never come home.

My daddy finally knocked a little sense right into me.

So I asked around until I found the Justice of the Peace.

The bruises on my body can’t be hidden anymore.

So park your car upon the hill, I’m headed out the door.

Step easy so my daddy doesn’t hear us sneak away.

Hang around, he’ll shoot you down, that’s why we just can’t stay.

Take me down to Iuka, Mississippi ‘fore he knows the two of us have up and gone.

Take me down to Iuka, Mississippi we can run away and never come home.

Follow close behind me, not much further now.

Oh, it’s just a shadow, I didn’t hear a sound.

Ain’t no way he heard us, ain’t no way he’ll come.

I hear someone breathing, hold my hand and run.

Somewhere in the river there’s a gun the devil owned.

Somehow everybody knew that everything was wrong.

A noose up in the maple tree; the old man’s gonna pay.

Two headstones for two lovers who finally got away.

Take me down to Iuka, Mississippi ‘fore he knows the two of us have up and gone.

Take me down to Iuka, Mississippi we can run away and never come home.

Take me down to Iuka, Mississippi ‘fore he knows the two of us have up and gone.

Take me down to Iuka, Mississippi we can run away and never come home.

Never come home.

Never come home.

Never come home.

The Secret Sisters Tennessee Me

Tenessee Me waiting here

I’m lonely tonight but feeling alright

Why don’t you come over here?

Why don’t you come over here?

Oh, Oh Tenessee Me

Tenessee Me see me loving you

See me by the fire side light

Come and see me through the night

Tenessee me through the night

If you chose the world to see

Just leave your heart in Tenessee

Plain, Plain Tenessee Me

The Secret Sisters The Pocket Knife

Please don’t make my wedding dress

I’m too young to marry yet

Can you see my pocket knife?

You can’t make me be a wife

How the world just turns & turns

How does anybody learn?

Mummy, put your needle down

How did you feel when you were young?

Cos I feel like I’ve just been born

Even though I’m getting on

How the world slips by so fast

How does anybody last?

As the world keeps coming

And the bees keep humming

And I’ll keep running

Flowers I can do without

I don’t wanna be tied down

White material will stain

My pocket knife’s gotta shiny blade

I’m not trying to break your heart

I’m just trying not to fall apart

As the world keeps coming

And the bees keep humming

And I’ll keep running

Please don’t make my wedding dress

I’m too young to marry yet

Can you see my pocket knife?

You can’t make me be a wife

The Secret Sisters Tomorrow Will Be Kinder

Black clouds are behind me, I now can see ahead

Often I wonder why I try hoping for an end

Sorrow weighs my shoulders down

And trouble haunts my mind

But I know the present will not last

And tomorrow will be kinder

Tomorrow will be kinder

It’s true, I’ve seen it before

A brighter day is coming my way

Yes, tomorrow will be kinder

Today I’ve cried a many tear

And pain is in my heart

Around me lies a somber scene

I don’t know where to start

But I feel warmth on my skin

The stars have all aligned

The wind has blown, but now I know

That tomorrow will be kinder

Tomorrow will be kinder

I know, I’ve seen it before

A brighter day is coming my way

Yes, tomorrow will be kinder

A brighter day is coming my way

Yes, tomorrow will be kinder
