From the album The Time is Now

Lyrics

SISTER LEE

She walked into her garden
Feet sink in rain drenched earth
Soil and seed its all she needs
She’ll feed her family from this dirt

I watch her from the window
Through flowers on the sill
She knows the planting timing
When to sow and when to till

She’s a woman, she’s a child
Her life reflects her hearts desire
She’s everything I could ever want to be
She’s a mother, a friend, she’s my sister Lee

She smiles at those she meets
In line waiting patiently
New chickens for the farm
And new feed to feed them on

I see her car coming up the road
We all welcome her home
Unload get the dinner going
Work’s never done and she’s never alone

She’s a woman, she’s a child
Her life reflects her hearts desire
She’s everything I could ever want to be
She’s a lover, a friend, she’s my sister Lee

She carries her child in her arms
Hair falls across her cheek
As the sun deepens its colors
She sings him to sleep

Night falls and her work is done
A smile curves her lips
To sleep in arms of lover she gives thanks
For the life she leads

She’s a woman, she’s a child
Her life reflects her hearts desire
She’s everything I could ever want to be
She’s a mother a friend she’s my sister Lee

She always does her best
At everything she attempts
She loves all her life
And tries to live it right
