The Jayhawks

The Jayhawks are an American alternative country and rock band that emerged from the Twin Cities music scene during the mid 1980s. Their country rock sound was influential on many bands who played the Twin Cities circuit during the 1980s and 1990s like Uncle Tupelo, The Gear Daddies and The Honeydogs. They have released several studio albums, including five on the American Recordings label. On hiatus from 2005 to 2009, the band has since reunited and released a new album, "Mockingbird Time," in September 2011. more »

Sister cry, what you needed 
Bought yourself things you could not use 
Could be some man will come along and claim you 
Could be you'll wind up in another town. 

Sister cry, count the stars. 
Is many in the sky that passed you by. 
Could be up ahead you'll be seeing changes. 
Somehow changes made won't belong to you. 

[Chorus] 
Someone come along and carry you down 
And you called my name 
I was so hungry then 
Someone come along and carry you down 
You could not see you 
Someone come along and lay you down 
And you don't talk at all 
Its the hardest way 
Someone come along and carry you down 

Sister cry, been mistreated. 
Doesn't mean someone won't let you in. 
Could be some man will come along and claim you 
Could be you'll wind up in another down 

This devils knocking at your door 
But I could lead them all astray 
Just don't matter what people say 

[Chorus] 

Sister cry, count the stars. 
Is many in the sky that passed you by. 
Could be up ahead you'll be seeing changes. 
Somehow changes made won't belong to you. 
Could be up ahead you'll be seeing changes. 
Somehow changes made won't belong to you.
