The songs on Sister of Mine offer a rich fusion of genres and styles, from the catchy, toe-tapping country tune “Blue Ridge Mountains”, to the bluesy true story about a horse her dad tied to their back step in “Back Step Blues”. ... more

Track Name: All Night Train
lyrics at sherryryan.com
Track Name: The Only One
Bless this home
And bless this child
I read it everyday
On the kitchen wall
I’m a fool every morning
I drink every night
You’re the only one
I’ve kept in my sight

Blame it on the past
It never goes away
Will I ever see the end?
Of choices I made
I’m a star every morning
I burn out with the lights
You’re the only one
I’ve kept in my sight

Oh lord let me be free from
Saying things that I don’t mean and
Oh lord I don’t believe in
Everything for a real good reason
Track Name: The Narrows
One lonely thing on the ocean
Drifting away and lonesome
I dreamed we danced out of time
Thought you we’re no longer mine

Ship sailed away through the narrows
In love’s ocean of sorrows
I dreamed of dark clouds and rain
What if I never make it back

What if the skies are too cloudy
What if the tides are too rowdy
Would you be there to hold me
Never aware or knowing

One lonely thing on the ocean
Drifting away and lonesome
I dreamed we danced out of time
Thought you we’re no longer,
Thought you were no longer mine
Track Name: Moving On
Don’t know why I’m here anymore
Think I’m finally finished
Headin for the door
And I’d stay
If it wasn’t for me
Comfort was in my way
Now I’m gonna leave

I’m moving on from a darker place
To a brighter one
Don’t know when I don’t know how
Maybe sooner maybe now
I’m moving on

You can talk me down
But not enough
Something’s gonna give right now
And I’m not giving up
For all the budding trees
I wanna see the summer time
Flowers and the leaves

I’m moving on from a darker place
To a brighter one
Don’t know when I don’t know how
Maybe sooner maybe now
I’m moving on

I’m moving on from a darker place
To a brighter one
Don’t know when I don’t know how
Maybe sooner maybe now
I’m moving on
I’m moving on
Track Name: Sister of Mine
You’re shit outta whiskey
I’m shit outta luck
And I got a crocodile
On my lap
Think I’ll snap these pearly buttons
And gettyup
Outta here

Gonna head on out the Sixty-one
Long lonesome you know the one
Call that sister of mine to come on down
Get me outta here

Call that sister of mine
Call that sister of mine
Tell her to come on down the 61
Call that sister of mine
Tell her to come on down
Get me outta here

The way it’s going
I won’t make it
All the others
Can take it
I tried getting out
I was too deep
And that crocodile
Well he never sleeps

Call that sister of mine
Call that sister of mine
Tell her to come on down the 61
Call that sister of mine
Tell her to come on down
Get me outta here
Track Name: Where the Wind Blows
I’m going where the wind blows
And the sun doesn’t shines
It’s cold its lonely but it’s mine
I go there sometimes but not for sometime
I’m going where the wind blows
And the sun doesn’t shine

I don’t know just when
My train is coming
But I know it could be anytime
I bought me a ticket cause I new I was going
I’m going where the wind blows
And the sun doesn’t shine

If you come over to see me sometime
To tell me it’s over and it’s time to come home
We’ll keep on moving on together
Where the wind never blows
And the sun shines
