Sister Soak The Beans Lyrics

Sister, soak the beans
I'll be comin Home to Chop the Onion
Mama, light the stove
It'll take a while for the cornbread to get done
I'll be comin' home
I've had enough, I'm done with self-denial
Can't you hear me moan?
Set the table, I'll be there in a while

Workin' on the run
Burnin' cactus down on the Rio Grande
No shade from the sun
Just wishin' I'd get done with shovelin' sand

Sister, soak the beans
I'll be comin Home to Chop the Onion
Mama, light the stove
It'll take a while for the cornbread to get done
I'll be comin' home
I've had enough, I'm done with self-denial
Can't you hear me moan?
Set the table, I'll be there in a while

I been gone so long
Callin' cattle on the Goodnight Lovin' Line
Can't you hear my song
The canteen's dry as the dust that's in my eyes

Sister, soak the beans
I'll be comin Home to Chop the Onion
Mama, light the stove
It'll take a while for the cornbread to get done
I'll be comin' home
I've had enough, I'm done with self-denial
Can't you hear me moan?
Set the table, I'll be there in a while

Last time I got stuck
In a Yankee city up above the Dixon Line
I run plum out of luck
Not an inch of enchalada could I find

I'll be comin' home
I've had enough, I'm done with self-denial
No Peace can I find
Set the table, I'll be there in a while
