HANK WILLIAMSBe Careful Of Stones You Throw Lyrics
A tongue can accuse and carry bad news
The seeds of distrust, it will sow
But unless you've made no mistakes in your life
Be careful of stones that you throw.
a neighbor was passing my garden one time
That it was gossip, not flowers, she had on her mind And this is what I heard my neighbor say:
that girl down the street should be run from our midst
She knows not to speak to my child or to me. My neighbor then smiled and I thought:
A car speeded by and the screamin' of brakes
A sound that made my blood chill
For my neighbor's one child had been pulled from the path
And saved by a girl lying still.
The child was unhurt and my neighbor cried out:
Oh! who was that brave girl so sweet?
I covered the crushed, broken body and said:
The bad girl who lived down the street.
