lyrics

Oh Sister, oh sister oh sister
You don't know what’s...
Oh Sister, oh sister oh sister
You don't know what’s coming.

Your sister's come a long way to find me,
Through dust and dirges, climbing trees.
You hide in the wilderness to keep yourself safe,
From shadows and gallows that will seal your fate.

You hide in the wilderness, fetch me water.
You climb down trees and fetch me water.
You hide in the wilderness till it rains for drowning children fill the heart with pain singing…

Oh Sister, oh sister, oh sister
You don't know what’s coming.

You hide in the wilderness to keep yourself warm,
A cold breeze is coming won’t you be for warned
These woods are dangerous caused many to drown
His all mighty hands going to smite you down you

You hide in the wilderness and Fetch me water.
You climb down trees and fetch me water.
You hide in the wilderness till it rains for drowning children fill the heart with pain you’re singing…

Oh Sister, oh sister, oh sister
You don't know what’s coming.

The birds and the people are swimming through trees,
While a voice in the air says get down on your knees.
A storms a brewing I can feel the rain,
When people forget how to express their pain,

You hide in the wilderness and fetch me water.
You climb down trees and fetch me water.
You hide in the wilderness till it rains
For drowning children fill the heart with pain

You’re singing…
Oh Sister, oh sister, oh sister
You don't know what’s...
Oh Sister, oh sister, oh sister
You don't know what’s...
Oh Sister, oh sister, oh sister
You don't know what’s coming.
