Blind Willies - Needle, Feather, And A Rope
Sister, where you going with spikes on your heels? Your man’s not worthy of attention It may be natural, oh it’s what you do best You ought to move in some other direction You can touch fire, draw water from stone Deliver strength into captivity But all day I see as you smile and you slave Giving glory to your enemy God gave you a needle God gave you a feather And a rope Brother, when the time comes will you even make a sound? Standing on a corner with flowers in your hand Not that you can’t sing or clench your teeth and fight There are just some things the world won’t allow you to have There’s no guarantee if it’s mercy that you want There’s only one road but it’s endless and deep Got to go by yourself don’t try to compromise With anyone whose love drifts away like smoke Two white horses Side by side Goodbye brother You’ve been sanctified I’m waiting for something Another girl and a new skin Never said it had to make sense Just get me through the door God gave us a needle God gave us a feather And a rope Where I’m going now might disappear Don’t come running if you can’t see me I do believe it’s three voices that I hear The wilderness was never empty One begs forgiveness, one asks for sorrow One demands my sweet attention I don’t know how it ever got this far Guess I made the wrong impression God gave them a needle God gave them a feather And a rope
