subject: [ig-news] igc:  new song lyrics


[sherlyn's note: this message was originally sent to the indigo

to make up for the previous nigc, here's a little igc:


here are the lyrics, as i've heard them, for two of the new amy songs you'll
are talking about.   these are definitely open for corrections!


sister  (as played at the roxy in atlanta on 8/5)
sister i'm heading out of alabama
so you'd better think fast
the wind's gonna pick me up now
and the rain won't stop


i'm heading down to georgia
so don't lose track
of where you been and where you going now
and who you've seen and what they lack
and why you come undone
every time you go there
and how you come undone


i know your heart's in danger
and so is your life
you'd better learn to trust a stranger
and stop & rest for a night


see a sign up in the headlights
and a moon up above won't be enough
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
and a woman in a family way
and a car that lost control
i'm studying the distance
>from the blanket to the gun
it's ten hours to natchez
and another ten home


i know your heart's in danger
and so is your life
you'd better learn to trust a stranger
and stop & camp for the night


see a sign up in the headlights
and a moon up above
light the embers of another
and the night won't seem so rough
sister
go ahead
come on now


it was trust that brought me here
and trust will bring me home

little darling (played at eddie's attic at the chiapas benefit on 8/2/98)
i said hey little darling
there's something that you should know
they're saying it's gonna hound every soul
this thing they won't let us go
gonna break us down to nothing
gonna eat us from the inside out
i said hey little darling
i don't want you to feel it fall down (???)


i said the cancer finally took him
i was watching the trucks pull in
me and your daddy
we had a job under the ground
mining uranium
some things your daddy leaves you
some things he don't
some things are goinna be here anyhow
some things just won't
one thing i want you to understand
is you ain't gotta be a mining man
i cursed the day that i went down
and pulled that shit out of the ground


now we were living over in nevada
that's where your people come from
grandma would take me and your daddy
on down to the gunnery range
we sit and watch the bombs blow
until the sun goes down
all those colors running like the painted desert
and you get to see it now


the government boys have something so damn secret
they had to hide it in the desert sand
out there the skies so big
and there ain't no mistaking it
whose got the winning hand


i said i've been all the way to alaska now
to a town they call point of hope
they took some of what we got down here
to see how it would grow
i hear the lichen bought it
and now it's running through the caribou
and soon little darling you'll get to feel it too
you'll get to feel it too
get to feel it too

i just put some pictures on my web site from my cheap digital camera -
nothing incredible- all from sunday as something screwed up my camera on
saturday and i didn't do any photoshop retouching - too little time - i
still have to develop my regular film and, provided i get access to a
scanner - i should be able to make a scrapbook of sorts.

enjoy and peace-

hey all,
the girls are in spin magazine once again.....(the new issue with the
beastie boys on the cover)  it's a review of the lilith fair in portland
oregon on june 19th.  there's a pic of sinead, saram and natalie.  i don't
know what's up with the reviewer, but the part about ig says this....
    "the indigo girls, welcomed more warmly than they had been on their tour
of southern high schools, played some kind of trip-hop song and finaled
(sic) with a cover of neil young's "rockin' in the free world" without ever
quite rocking."
but then later on, when they are talking about natalie merchant, they say
    "after the indigos had rallied the crowd to its feet, merchant rapped
them on their knuckles with such lugubrious songs...."
