The Secret Sisters I Cannot Find A Way

So long, so long

How we barely hanging on

By a threat, my foolish head.

Isn’t sure we can ever get on

Somewhere within a little voice is telling me to try again

I cannot find a away to say goodbye

When I decide to give my heart it is no longer mine!

Farewell, it’s hard

I don’t believe we are better off apart

Let’s see, it’s true,

Cause I don’t know how to be away from you.

So stay with me,

Next to you is where I really wanna be!

I can’t find away to say goodbye

When I decide to give my heart it is no longer mine!

My heart chose you,

It doesn’t listen when I tell her what to do!

I can’t find away to say goodbye

When I decide to give my heart it is no longer mine!

The Secret Sisters Why Baby Why

Oh, tell me, why, baby, why, baby, why, baby, why

You make me cry, baby, cry, baby, cry, baby, cry?

Lord, I can’t help but love you ’til the day that I die

So tell me, why, baby, why, baby, why, baby, why?

Well, I got a crow I wanna pick with you

Just like last time when the feathers flew

You’re runnin’ wild kickin’ up your heels

A-leavin’ me at home with a hand full of bills

Lord, I can’t live without you, you know it’s true

But there’s no livin’ with you so what’ll I do?

I’m goin’ honky tonkin’, get as tight as I can

And maybe while I’m there, I’m gonna find a new man

Oh, tell me, why, baby, why, baby, why, baby, why

You make me cry, baby, cry, baby, cry, baby, cry?

Lord, I can’t help but love you ’til the day that I die

So tell me, why, baby, why, baby, why, baby, why?

Well, I don’t know but I’ve heard ’em say

That every little dog’s a-gonna have his day

You’d better pay attention, don’t you dare forget

‘Cause I’m just a little bitty puppy yet

Well, I caught you honky tonkin’ with my best friend

The thing to do was leave you but I shoulda left then

Now I’m too old to leave you but I still get sore

When you come home a-feelin’ for the knob on the door

Oh, tell me, why, baby, why, baby, why, baby, why

You make me cry, baby, cry, baby, cry, baby, cry?

Oh, Lord, I can’t help but love you ’til the day that I die

So tell me, why, baby, why, baby, why, baby, why?

Tell me, why, baby, why, baby, why, baby, why?

The Secret Sisters My Heart Skips A Beat

Oh, my heart skips a beat

When we walk down the street

I feel the tremblin’ in my knees

And just to know you’re mine

Until the end of time

Makes my heart skip a beat

Well, I did a double take the day I met you

And my heart turned a flip as I stood next to you

And I knew right there I never could forget you

For you are my every dream come true

And my heart skips a beat

When we walk down the street

I feel a tremblin’ in my knees

And just to know you’re mine

Until the end of time

Makes my heart skip a beat

You came into my life without a warnin’

And you turned my cloudy skies from gray to blue

You’re my sunshine that comes up every mornin’

Yes, you are my every dream come true

And my heart skips a beat

When we walk down the street

I feel a tremblin’ in my knees

And just to know you’re mine

Until the end of time

Makes my heart skip a beat

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

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?

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.
