lyrics

Our mother always liked to say
We were born with a battle cry
I won, but she had me by the leg
And the nurses declared it a tie

we don't always get along
but she'll tell me when I've got it wrong
my sister

i saw the angels at seventeen
by nineteen i heard their voice
and people don't have much room for a man
who thinks angels make him rejoice

But we're thick as thieves
And you know we wear it on our sleeves
My sister

She remembers the night that daddy died
Out on Route 41
In a blaze of steel and bourbon breath
All because the Braves won

We got rid of the Braves and eating meat
And red things the color of blood
And I found places without myself
Where his car only stalled in the mud

But I can't slip away too deep
'Cause she's the company I keep
My sister

We don't see eye to eye
On much besides what's right
My sister
