My sister sent me, come and get you in
It's time to take your dinner and you know
You're to come in when your called
I can see you up on the highest limb
The sky looks to be stormin'
And you'll be cold by mornin'

When I returned without you
Her head was filled with words
Her tongue could not withhold, see
So she let them fly and scold me
I told I'd seen out on the highest limb
She said the night was stormin'
And you'd be dead by mornin'

Little sister, where have you gone?
In the night I hear you cryin'
And the days are so damn long
Sometimes I wish that I could've gone
Instead of you and I wonder if you
Were sittin' here, would you be wishin' that too

The woods were damp and the air was green
A beautiful spring morning, now
What could serve as warning
And I'd often seen it, rotten wood
And broken bricks, a long rope and a pail
And a hole going straight to hell

And your big brother, you'd do anything to catch his smile
But you couldn't catch him runnin'
So you'd just duck and hide for awhile
I didn't hear you, I didn't even try
I was a hundred yards away
I thought you'd run off somewhere to play

Little sister, where have you gone?
In the night I hear you cryin'
And the days are so damn long
Sometimes I wish that I could've gone
Instead of you and I wonder if you
Were sittin' here, would you be wishin' that too

Ground was clay, we dug a shallow grave
And laid ourselves to sleep, there just outside
The fields where we had played
And I remember, the way we mourned and cried
And tried to start the healing
But what the stone was revealing was a lie
'Cause it was I

Little sister, where have you gone?
In the night I hear you cryin'
And the days are so damn long
Sometimes I wish that I were
Laying here with you and I wonder if that were so
Would you be ridin' like me

Little sister, where have you gone?
In the night I hear you cryin'
And the days are so damn long
Sometimes I wish that I were
Laying here with you and I wonder if that were so
Would you be ridin' like me too, like me too
