Lyrics

Sister Mary
Music & Lyrics by Vic Sapp & Dodd Michael Lede

I’m just a neighbor
I knew your father
We were friends until the day he died
I saw your anger
Taking over
Consuming the apple of your father’s eye
Your rage had made you blind

Let me paint you a picture
Of a Saturday morning
Staring out the window
At the school kids playing
Not a care in the world
They were happy to be
In a world that was safe
From what it could be
Then the rain crept in
And washed the colors away
Exposing the pain and
The truth in decay
Tell me why
Tell me why
Tell me why

I’ve been silent long enough
What would your father say
If he was here today
And this time I’m speaking up

Sister Mary
Where’d you go
Did you miss the bus
Did you walk too slow
Are you going home late again tonight?
Mary Mary quite contrary
Why do you think it’s necessary?
Sister Mary

Now she goes by the name
Of American Honey
Sitting in the laps of the men
With the money
Using her smile
To open the door
If they want something else
Then they gotta pay more
Hustle and charm
Are the tools of her trade
Trying to make the best
Of this life that she’s made
Money comes easy
But her memory’s haunted
Thinking of her daddy
And what he would have wanted

I’ve been silent long enough
What would your father say
If he was here today?
And this time I’m speaking up

Sister Mary
Where’d you go?
Did you miss the bus
Did you walk to slow
Are you going home late again tonight?
Mary Mary, quite contrary
Why do you think it’s necessary?
Sister Mary

Sister Mary
Why so low?
Did you figure out
Life’s a TV show?
Where in the end
Everything’s not ok.
Mary Mary, quite contrary
Why do you think it’s ordinary?
Sister Mary

Sister Mary
Sister Mary
Sister Mary

One of the great things about music is that it lives on forever!!”
