Song For Fay (Herring Caroline)

Sun comes up in the morning See that sunrise forming All the pretty colors Shining down on the water I don't know about heaven But I put in my dollar Let's see what it buys me Rest and a little dinner Walking down the highway Thirsty for some water Men keep looking my way Wonder what they're wanting I don't know about heaven But I put in my dollar Mister, what you show me Don't think I'm not learning Maybe it's my brother Always tried to save us Maybe it's my daddy He ain't good for nothing I don't know about heaven But I put in my dollar Don't you try and stop me Til' I get where I'm going Watching all the women Making sense of living All their little babies Aren't we supposed to have them I don't know about heaven But I put in my dollar Answers for the taking Now that I'm a woman Sun comes up in the morning See that sunrise forming All the pretty colors Shining down on the water I don't know about heaven But I put in my dollar I don't know about heaven But my purse is on my shoulder I don't know about heaven But my purse is on my shoulder
