Lyrics

Kin

Bad wind blowing, it scratches the skin
Can’t take the high road, it’s washed out again
Nineteen years old girl, covered in sin
You left on your own, now you can’t get back in

Momma poor momma been cryin’ for days
Poppa’s just drinking, he won’t mention your name
Preacher won’t talk now to sister and me
Can’t let you fall out of the family tree

How long will you stay away?
Could we hope for tomorrow? Would you come back today?
Down home but not in touch with your kin
You left on your own, now you can’t get back in

Bad wind blowing, it scratches the skin
Can’t take the high road, it’s washed out again
Nineteen years old girl, covered in sin
You left on your own, now you can’t get back in

Momma poor momma just sits by the grave
Poppa won’t mention this mess that you made
Preacher won’t talk now to sister and me
Can’t let you fall out of the family tree
